Amélie Lamont: “I’m leaving AIGA behind. You should, too.”

 

This past May, the AIGA New York board met via Zoom to discuss potential board members recommended through our Call for Nominations.

“How do you get through the rest of the nomination application if their portfolio is bad?” one board member quipped as we discussed the merits of candidates.

“Yeah and also, how do we know if someone is cool?” another added. I was speechless. In a previous meeting, we’d agreed that bringing on non-designers and non-visual creatives was of a high priority. Why would a person’s “coolness” and portfolio (or lack of one) be a factor for inviting them to a team of community volunteers?

“I didn’t join the board to be best friends with people or to discuss the finer points of their craft. I joined to serve the broader design community and I hope that’s why we’re all here,” I countered, finally finding my words.

As a Black designer, I’m no stranger to my work quality being questioned. But it’s especially jarring to exist as a Black person who can see what’s going on behind closed doors. Unfortunately, my experience is not unique and this is especially true when surveying the shared experience of Black designers who have left “America’s professional organization for design” known as AIGA. During my tenure within AIGA, I’ve come to realize that it’s impossible to create sufficient change inside an organization that actively perpetuates racism towards people who look like me. It’s time for me to walk away, but before I do, I want to share what I’ve learned about AIGA’s history and pattern of not supporting Black designers.

UX UI Design tests online – Earn an extra income working from home

There are a lot of opportunities online to extra cash daily and at the end of the month you can have something between U$ 100 – U$ 300.

However if you are a designer and if you want to work online, better be something related to design, right?

There are several “online jobs” regarding user experience tests, site tests, web design, bugs and apps.

Besides if you are already a digital designer UX – UI or want to learn more it is an interesting experience as a design tester you are at backstage, testing and learning also.

This sites are generally easy to enroll, in order to have a initial test, you must study guidelines and wait the test. In other sites you have to download a software to record screen and audio to perform testing.

The pay rate is good between U$ 10 – 20 for test, however at the beginning tests are not happening often, that’s a negative point.
