Agile has become the law of the land and it has redrawn team lines on many an org chart. Designers are finding themselves embedded in cross-functional teams with engineers and product owners. It’s a great opportunity to learn from others with different perspectives, but it often leaves designers craving the feedback and camaraderie of other designers that’s needed to improve their craft. In isolation, many designers feel their growth has stagnated as has their career. Designers disenchanted with their work can find themselves searching for greener pastures where their creativity can be more freely expressed.
