Who are we?

Welcome to Designshot!
We are a Secret Society of Designers and our purpose is preserving the Enigmatic Essence of Design Mastery 👀

We quickly realized that, as designers, wether intermediate or senior, we lacked ways to improve ourselves and get inspired in our design careers.
We need more than technical content, or 101 classes, we want to go deeper on specific topics.

That's something our Society wants to provide.

We have different lodges focused on several Design fields of expertise and we host Rituals where our members share insights and experiments with their peers.

Why not join us? We're cool! 😎

What is a Story?

A Story is a series of videos where a kick-ass Designer shares their personal accounts about their career journeys and experiences in a masterclass-style format. Each Story is filled with insights, advice, and inspiration that designers of all levels can learn from and apply to their own careers.

Designshot recognizes that technical skills and knowledge are important, but also believes that there is value in sharing the personal stories and experiences of designers that can help others navigate the challenges and opportunities of the design industry.

By providing a space for these Stories to be shared, Designshot hopes to foster a community of designers who can learn from and support each other in their career growth and development.

What sets our Design content apart from others?

What sets a Story by Designshot apart from other design content is its focus on personal experiences and stories of World-class designers. They tell you what they've been through and how they handled it. So when you're facing the same situation they did you are more prepared than they were.

Unlike other design content that only focuses on technical skills and knowledge, each Story brings a unique perspective to the table. By sharing personal stories and experiences of senior Designers, each Story provides inspiration that all designers can learn from and use to growth in their career.
