Hey WIP Community 👋

My name is Tom & I'm the founder of The Designers League - A global community of talented designers. I started the community out of loneliness from dropping out of university and moving back to my small hometown in Lincoln, mostly known for it's sausages.

I setup a small Facebook group so I could gain feedback on my freelance work to try and reclaim some of the feeling I had when I was at university and had a peer group. It turns out I wasn't alone in wanting that and in the the first 24 hours I gained nearly 200 members. 

Fast forward 4 years and our Facebook group is nearly 19,000 strong and our instagram has over 45,000 followers. All of these metrics are great, but I am now focussed on building real value for the community and this is what I've set out on WIP to document. I'm not 100% sure on what steps I'm taking next but I'm excited to be learning and growing with you all on this journey.

If you ever want any feedback on your work / design, please don't hesitate to reach out on twitter / the telegram, I'm all ears!
