Designers of Vietnam 

Highly curated directory & community of professionals in the field of design working and living in Vietnam (and APAC).


THE PROBLEM:
Businesses need the help of designers. Designers want to be the best designers. Both, alike, still face difficulties when it comes to understanding what design, design roles and the overall value of a design centric mindset can bring to them. Particularly in Vietnam, where the roles of UX/UI are prominent when seeking talent, the current design talent is less skilled but willing to learn, and a better understanding of design value is needed.

THE TARGET:
Mainly, designers within the digital design spectrum. 24–40 years of age who are interested in upskilling themselves, be part of a community and are soft-searching for new opportunities and connections that will help them grow.

INSPIRATION:
Inspired by culture, needs, self reliance, curiosity and gut feelings not just by business or trend reports.
