Loving Slack at work? It's a great way to stay connected with your teammates no matter where you are.
Aside from staying in the loop with your team, Slack is also a great way to network, share your experiences and get advice from other professionals in your field. Wouldn't you love to connect with like-minded designers and share new ideas and discuss all things design with them?
We at Complish have curated the ultimate Top 10 Slack Communities for Designers to allow you to make connections with professionals in the field.
The question to ask now isn't “Should I join a Slack community?” but "Which community is relevant for me to join?"
