Why Join?

We're creating an online home for Northern Irish design. Join if you'd like to become part of a community of local creatives discussing the industry, events, our work, and helping each other find jobs all while forging new meaningful connections.

NI Design Chat is open to designers in any field — from UX to illustration to fashion. If you design for a living or fun come say hi! We can't wait to meet you.

Inclusive and Welcoming
We're committed to operating a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of religious beliefs, gender, sexual orientation, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status or other possible differentiators.

What Can I Expect?

NI Design Chat is a free public Slack community. Once you're a member you can introduce yourself to everyone and join channels relevant to your interests and skill set. You can view our full channel list and discover more in our Community Guide.

Who Runs It?

There is no organisation or business behind it. It was created by a group of Northern Ireland based designers who felt a centralised location for NI designers to connect was missing.

Want to become a co-organiser?
We're always open to more help. If you'd like to discuss getting involved with the organisation of the NI Design Chat community please get in touch.

Do You Work in NI Tech?

If you also work in the Northern Irish tech industry we'd recommend joining the awesome NI Tech community — home to 2,200+ NI tech workers.
