For me Compass of Design was a no-brainer to join in. I knew Darian the founder from another project and I was really into the idea of a community of designers to exchange ideas, get feedback and talk about god and the world.

Compass of Design is that for me, a place of good people, many of them I would consider friends by now, who exchanges, talks and motivates another. Or just to share a silly video now and then.

I had the opportunity to write my first article on Medium under the Compass of Design brand. Something I never even dreamt about something like that. Thank you Darian & the whole group.

Learn from Smart People

Boost your creative power by getting around other designers who can help you move forward.

If you are someone who is just learning the principles of design or someone who's going back to master them, going out there alone is not an easy task. Designers like you are looking for the perfect place to get feedback on the design work they're doing.

A community of talented and hard-working designers can help fix that.

Your time is a precious thing, so why would you chance going months or years in the wrong direction?

Whether you have questions on how to handle client work, how to interview for design jobs, what to improve on your design work, or needing resources to improve your skills, many members inside the community have been in your shoes at some point in their journey.

Let the Compass of Design community point you in the direction you need to go in order to get back on track in your design career.

Receive better actionable feedback from designers like you

Get clarity for your specific situations

You could spend a lot of money on business coaching, a lot of time in design mentorship, and a lot of energy at figuring things out by yourself. However, not everyone has the resources to be able to get the right help for their specific careers.

The community is open 24/7. We have a growing group of people from all around the world sharing work they've done and giving feedback to others. These are like-minded individuals who are focused on becoming better at design as well. Should you have any questions, our members are ready and able to share their feedback ased on their experience, expertise, and creative strengths.

How is this different than posting to social media or other sites like Dribbble, Behance, or Instagram?

You actually get to know these people who are giving you advice and they become more familiar with your strengths and opportunities to grow. If you've tried posting to portfolio sites asking for feedback, you might notice that there's the same 10 random people leaving emoji comments, liking your shot in the first 10 seconds, or randomly commenting saying "looks good! please check out my portfolio and comment."

This community is free of bot likes, spam comments, and unhelpful feedback.

By joining the group, you get actionable insights of ways to improve a specific design, personalize resources recommended to you, or even empathy for what you may be going through. This group has been built by helping others grow as designers. What you'll find is that you'll get better feedback here than other places and by helping give feedback to others, you also begin to grow as a designer.

The Community Publication

Each week, we post some of the best content written by the community members to our design publication. These articles come from our experiences, research, and practice as designers.

The publication is here for community members to share their voice to a specific design audience to help empower other designers along the way.

Community Exclusive Gifts

There's tons of new products, courses, and resources being added specifically for community members before the end of the year. Along side community membership, you'll be added to the newsletter to get community updates, early access to other products, and design training in your emails each week.

There are plans for much more as we continue to grow.

We're always working on improving the platform to make this experience one of the best for you.

For the longest time I felt like I was in a bubble concerning design interaction. This community has completely revamped my outlook on the industry. I would say the most help in my career has come from relationships and resources I’ve found at Compass of Design

Being a part of Compass of Design has really inspired me to get more into designing. Being primarily a developer, the content I see within this community push me farther and urge me to be a better designer. Not only is Darian incredibly active among the community members, giving advice, reviews, helpful resources, he is in general, an incredible guy. Being a member of this community has definitely been a fantastic choice.

The value behind “Compass of Design” goes beyond the newsletters. The community Darian has built contributes to what can be learned through feedback and other resources. The thought-provoking newsletters and the feedback I’ve received, has helped me improved my designs, and become more intentional with my design decisions.

From someone commited to design excellence

Hey there! I'm Darian Rosebrook, I'm a Brand Identity Designer and the founder of Compass of Design.

My mission is to help equip designers with the skills they need to defeat impostor syndrome and start designing with confidence. My commitment to you designers is to continue to share what I know and help other designers get closer to mastering their craft.

My writing has been featured in all sorts of places, but you can find a list of everything we've made for you over at the Compass of Design Publication, where you can learn more about the things we teach within our design community.
