New: 3-minute video skill shares we call 'Design Spots'

Simply Secure is a non-profit, and our mission is educational. We support practitioners in design and technology by running workshops, creating open resources, and gathering a community around ux design and trustworthy technology. Over the past five years, we’ve been exploring different ways to share our knowledge with the community. Today we’re excited to present our next iteration of knowledge and skill sharing: short videos that answer specific community questions. We call them Design Spots.

We conceived Design Spots out of two separate thoughts. First, we wanted to offer another medium of communication — specifically one that would be accessible to folks asynchronously, so videos seemed like a sensible thing to try out. Second, we wanted to address specific needs in the community, i.e. questions we’ve heard from you. Some of that happens in our Slack, in person at coachings or workshops, but with these videos, we can open up our answers to a wider audience and hopefully benefit more people.

So without further ado, here are our first five videos!

Design Spots

Get in touch if you have ideas for more topics, or questions you’d like to see us answer!

We’ve started holding open office hours monthly, the first Wednesday of the month at 10AM Eastern / 4PM CET. We also host a community slack, where you are welcome to join, connect with others, and get support from the community as a whole.
