At UNI we are building a collaborative community of creative people. UNI offers a place to upload your projects along with the thought process behind it and start discussions with other creative people who would be interested. This enables designers to share their work, get feedback and create new knowledge to make design more open and available to all.

 

UNI works by users of UNI sharing their work, ideas and generating discussions on the UNI. Users of UNI helps in making UNI a great community for creative people. UNI is a place where which enables a fashion designer to work with a biologist together or a biotechnology scientist to critically analyze a product designer’s work. Its a place where all knowledge domains of art, design, and engineering co-exist for learning, imagination and innovation.

In order to provide a space where everyone feels comfortable in sharing their work discuss their ideas and share among others, all UNI users should follow UNI key principles, UNI Policies, and UNI Terms of Service. We have created  a list of Do's and Dont's for the users to make each UNI page useful and a great community for everyone.
