We are working as a community in order to not end up as lonely designers in the product teams (and we get to nerd out as designers). In our community, we divide the product teams and customers among us in order to be present where it happens and make sure each PO has a “go to designer”. This allows us to build a mixed skilled team, adding the right designers to the right projects. It also allows us to get variation, not getting stuck in one product area for too long.
Btw, we call ourselves Pigcorns - welcome to our community!
