After chatting with many readers of my book I realised that there is no resources for practicing presenting design work, receiving and providing *real* feedback *(that is beyond "Great colors bro" ©)* To change that I'm **matching between designers so they can connect for 1:1 video-calls, present their work and provide/receive feedback** to like-minded colleagues. I already organised (and guided myself) 5 calls like that. Since they were valuable for participants, I'm looking to expand this pilot and match between more designers in order to learn how such resource could be scaled :) If you'd like to participate — please reach out over email or DM on [Twitter]( or leave your details in the comment and I'll send you more details!
