This groups mission is to foster the small but growing community of black designers in New York. To raise awareness, and strengthen ties with groups outside of this community and ultimately change that percentage.
Designers of all levels and backgrounds are welcome, though most of our content is focused on UI/UX Design, UX Research, Design Strategy, Visual Design etc.
