Connecting social justice organizations with pro bono design help.

In response to the compounded crises of COVID-19 and the murders of Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and George Floyd, and hundreds more whose lives were stolen by police and white supremacy, we're prioritizing support specifically for Black-led organizations and small businesses.

A letter to the community
When I started Designers Available (D/A) in 2016, I didn’t see opportunities for graphic designers to directly connect with social justice work. Four years later, I can see with a certain clarity that we need Designers Available less than ever before.
