"Our industry is facing a long-overdue reckoning — one that demands changes to our values, team norms, and design processes ... That’s why I think HmntyCntrd is so crucial right now—and a worthy investment for any team."

"HmntyCntrd is without question what we as creators and designers of the future need: a space to come together to connect and develop ourselves and our creative process in a way that moves us forward toward actualization rather than traps us in a never-ending inertia loop of tech-enabled human suffering. It cannot have come at a more crucial and impactful time."

"OMG! I learned so many new ways of thinking about UX work. I'm focusing more on equity and inclusion in all aspects of my research and design work, making sure I'm taking the lived experiences of others into account. I’m so grateful for HmntyCntrd for giving me the opportunity to see the world in a new way.”

“I genuinely believe that the content is unmatched. HmtnyCntrd is doing and has done the best job of taking design from this thing that you can do to make things pretty, to something that you can do to make things effective, and more welcoming, and safe, and courageous.”

“HmntyCntrd means so much to me. It's this non traditional way of educating yourself, still being immersed in a community, in a space that I never really had in any of my traditional institutions… It keeps me going in my day to day existence, both personally and professionally at work.”
A Black woman with short black hair, large gold earrings, and a patterned shirt smiles over her shoulder toward the camera.

Our Story


Like many of the folks that come through HmntyCntrd, Vivianne's toxic workplace experiences revealed a deeper desire to experience something different. Her experience taught her that the UX and Tech industries badly need disruption and that she wasn't alone in feeling burnt out, alone, and frustrated with the lack of care towards employees and customers.

In less than one year into its existence, HmntyCntrd was named one of FastCompany’s 2021 Top 10 Most Innovative Design Companies (fun fact: word-of-mouth about the impact and quality of our work led FastCompany to seek us out and extend this award to HmntyCntrd!). 

Now, HmntyCntrd is proud to serve thousands of professionals across a variety of industries and companies, including the hundreds of professionals in our private community representing at least 22 countries!
