ISSUE # 07

There’s an ongoing argument in the UI & UX world over who should be ‘allowed’ to preach and advocate for design. The self-appointed ‘gatekeepers’ constantly advocate for entrance barriers under the guise of “standards,” but they are all elitists who are too terrified to relinquish their fictitious authority.

ADPList and other similar communities are like the Rebel Alliance opposing the wicked Galactic Empire in Star Wars in their mission to democratise design knowledge and mentorship.

DesignWhine is a proud ally of the Rebel Alliance, and this special issue honours the achievement of ADPList.org.
