What makes the RGD slack community unique?

Offering channels focused on design #events, #jobs and #random links/gifs, RGD's Slack Workspace is also a place where Members can share some of the things that make our community special.

As a community that is exclusive to Certified, Provisional RGD, Affiliate and Jr. Affiliate Members, being a member of the RGD Slack Workspace means having access to a highly-curated community of experienced design professionals who are available to engage in conversation and answer questions.

RGD's Slack Workspace is open to Members from around the world and offers region-specific channels to help users connect with local RGDs in their communities.

Channels in the RGD Slack Workspace include:

  • #accessibility: All your questions and answers on accessibility. Find our top RGDs on accessibility here.
  • #branding: A safe place for designers to share their love and hate of contemporary logos
  • #career-advice: dedicated to members looking for advice on developing their careers as creative professionals, this channel hosts conversations on topics such as how to network when you’re shy, how to approach tests when interviewing for a job and how to brand yourself.
  • #design-educators: a shared space for those in design education to share conferences, articles and job postings or post discussion topics about the issues they face.
  • #ethicalissues: hosts discussions on spec work, sustainability in design and inspiration vs infringement. This channel is a great place to dig into the deeper issues facing design.
  • #inhousedesign is an excellent place for those working in house to gather and share their experiences. We’ve had conversations about project management, ways to manage assets, and how to manage internal stakeholders.
  • #vendors: a channel where users can request recommendations for vendors and suppliers that RGD Members have had good experiences with, such as web developers, photographers, printers and more.
