Ive seen other graduated sites do this but I've never seen GD do it but I want us, as a community, to possibly reflect or have chat sessions where we can question professionals in the field. I know in beta we had some talks about this but no one would pull the trigger so I hope I am doing that. I'm all up for a private chat event where we have a Q&A session, questions will be laid out before the chat event. Any other ideas people have please let me know on what can be brought to build our community and will allow us to have fun instead of policing new users to follow the yellow brick road.
So what I would like to possibly consider is:
- Chat session with an elite member of the design community; example: Maria Grønlund
- a chat session with an illustrator, example: Mike from Creative Mints
- Typography professional who has created a font and discuss what areas or questions we would have when doing one.
- Design contest (tried that once but never went anywhere) like Photography does for photo work.
