A Writing Hub
for Designers

A network for writers to share and receive feedback. We are an Open Source design platform where quality is rewarded, not clicks. Driven by humans, not algorithms. Join us.

Be the signal
through the noise

A platform built to surface purposeful stories from designers, developers, and creators, when they want to be heard – not when an algorithm decides. There's no forced engagement here – a reliable network to get the word out.

We're creating a more mindful, open, and fair publishing platform.

Built in the open for design, code, and tech

Quality over quantity

Attention hungry platforms force engagement to please algorithms, resulting in clickbait and shallow articles. We're not in a 'content' rat-race – join a network where quality rises over hype, regardless of 'likes' and follower counts.

Privacy-first

Free, unbiased, and quality design material is increasingly hard to come by with the rise in paywalls and privacy-invasive ads. We're exploring new business models for the web that keep content open, whilst rewarding writers.

Built to reward writers

Prototypr is built by writers, for writers. We write for passion, but we also know first-hand what it's like to make a living through writing in design. With that, we're working to bring more paid gigs to the writers network.

Open source and Inclusive

With the rise in corporate platforms optimizing for paywalled business models, our open source platform keeps educational content available to all readers. Articles are also translated to reach wider groups and cultures.
