Tell us about yourself

Sign up, give your name and portfolio address, and tell us about the types of design work you specialize in and enjoy doing.

Projects Find You

Open source projects can browse designers based on their skills and experience, and will connect with you when there’s a good project fit.

Have a Little Fun

Sometimes your 9-to-5 isn’t the most creatively fulfilling. Pad your portfolio with meaningful, exciting, real-world work that’s contributing to the greater good.

Design/UX Student

What are you studying?

Sign up and tell us about what you’re studying or about the areas you’d like to grow as a designer.

Find Rad Projects

Look for projects that may benefit from your help. Most projects are happy for anything you can help with. No contribution is too small.

Get (Real) Experience

Don’t rely on hypothetical classwork to fill your portfolio. Get real experience working with real developers on real projects. Stand-out from other students and be noticed by potential employeers for your real-world experience.

Register Your Project

Sign up and tell us a bit about your project. Include links to your website, GitHub, and other relevant documentation so designers can easily understand what you do and what help you need.

Find a Designer

Designers from companies like Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon, and countless more are willing to work for free to help the usability and design of your projects. Put them to work.

Polish Your Project

Don’t settle for “good enough” visuals or a “not-bad” user experience. Push your project to the next level with the help of experienced, passionate designers.
