I am the founder of BetterDesign (www.betterdesign.io). BetterDesign is a social community to test your design and copy using polls and get feedback and comments in the meantime. I created this project out of passion. I found a lot of designers working isolated and they have difficulty to find people to get feedback from, including myself. So I started this project. However, as the only founder of this project, I found myself lost, or even helpless to push this project forward sometimes. I have a full-time job. I spent my weekends on this project, but there are still a lot of things need to be done but I don't have enough resources, time and energy to do this. We have a couple hundreds of users, there are people posting polls almost every day. So if you are seriously looking for a project to work on, or simply just want to help out. Please contact me at contact@betterdesign.io. I would really appreciate. https://www.designernews.co/stories/85092-looking-for-a-cofounder Wed, 28 Jun 2017 07:11:14 +0100 2017-06-28T07:11:14+01:00 Google News launched a new redesign (with fact checking) https://www.designernews.co/stories/85091-google-news-launched-a-new-redesign-with-fact-checking https://news.google.com https://www.designernews.co/stories/85091-google-news-launched-a-new-redesign-with-fact-checking Wed, 28 Jun 2017 05:57:14 +0100 2017-06-28T05:57:14+01:00 Need help getting started, inspired, or want feedback? https://www.designernews.co/stories/85087-need-help-getting-started-inspired-or-want-feedback- Hey gang, A lot of people helped me out when I was getting started with design and front end development.
