Adplist Founders Felix Lee And James Baduour Talk About Their Mission To Democratize Mentorship For Ux Designers In The Seventh Issue Of Designwhine Magazine.

ADPList On Their Extraordinary Mission To Democratize Mentorship

In the realm of UX design, an ongoing debate revolves around the question of who gets to champion and advocate for this discipline. Some self-appointed gatekeepers argue for imposing entry barriers under the guise of “standards,” yet their motives often reveal elitism, as they fear relinquishing their fictional authority.

In a rebellion against such restrictive norms, communities like ADPList emerge as the Rebel Alliance fighting against the oppressive Galactic Empire in Star Wars, striving to democratize design knowledge and mentorship.

DesignWhine proudly aligns itself with the Rebel Alliance, and in this special issue dedicated to honoring the accomplishments of ADPList, we sit down with its founders, Felix Lee and James Badour. Join us as we explore the origins and future trajectory of this transformative initiative.
