Pods - Tiny Telegram groups for designers

February 13, 2019 at 7:17pm

Hey 👋,

I've had this idea after spending some time wishing I had a group of people to have deep conversations about design with, to have the conversations that can only occur while working closely with other great designers.

I wanted to let people (like me 🙋‍♂️) have a small group of designers to get to know over time, to ask questions and share work not as a shiny finished artefact, but as an ongoing process.

I'd love to hear what you think about the idea, does that problem resonate? Thanks so much 🙏

Hey there. I think this is a great idea. A similar idea crossed my mind because I often feel like I would like to have a support network of other designers to weigh in on my process, but rarely get the opportunity to do this with the tools that are available now because the communities are too big and lack a chance to get to know your fellow designer.

I think thats cool. And do you have a maximum number limitation for the members? The limitation is an interesting topic, too many people in a group may not be a good choice, people won't talk and share their ideas any more.

I thought I'd experiment. but aiming at 6-8 people for every group.

You're totally right, when you're broadcasting to a wide audience it's just different... Not enough people is also a problem though - I'll have to play around
