Big Design Companies Helping and Hiring Designers

It’s time to get a head start on the “new year, new you” crowd. For the designers out there, that may mean finally publishing a portfolio website, or finally updating the one you created this time last year! Designers are a particularly industrious and active bunch, so this could be a busy time for new work and goals. Design blogs are full of tips for your next interview, or for your portfolio, and then of course there are the design challenges and new trends to make time for as well!

One of our favorite growing communities is found on the .design domain. On many .DESIGN sites, you’ll find designers helping other designers. It’s a lively and active community that expands beyond just .DESIGN to other mediums like Twitter and even to events and conferences where designers go to listen to their peers and idols.

.DESIGN is being used by many major brands, such as,,, and dozens of others. These sites talk about their projects, the role design plays in their organization, and is usually a form of helpful content marketing to boost their visibility with designers so they can recruit top talent.

So, what better place to look for design tips and tricks than from the big companies that are leading the way (and hiring!)? Below, we’ve highlighted some helpful tips and the articles they come from, all of which come from a major brand’s own .design. Then, we’ve collected links to the companies using .design that are actively hiring. And finally, now is your time to grab your own .DESIGN domain during our December sale! At just $4.99, it’s an incredible steal and will look shiny and impressive when you ship off your resume and portfolio to any company, including those below.
