Our mission is to help designers grow.

Most companies don't have the time to invest in new designers. DIA prides itself in providing a safe environment for early career and transitioning professionals to flex their skills and develop their portfolio by pairing them with senior coaches.

We help companies and nonprofits figure out their information and website needs by focusing on good user experience starting with research, strategy, structure, and design. We are committed to working with those who provide social, economic and environmental good to their communities.

We're a training ground for design and tech professionals.

We offer apprenticeship opportunities for early career and transitioning tech professionals to develop their skillset and gain practical knowledge. Each apprentice is paired with a more experienced coach to mentor them through working with clients, navigating the design process, and developing skills in user experience and design.
