Calling All Designers To #HackDisrupt In NYC This Weekend

The TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon fast approaches and at this point, it’s important to start thinking about your hack’s design. Luckily, TechCrunch is happy to announce another partnership with the Design Trust to have crackerjack designers in attendance, polishing your creation to make it stand out in our esteemed judges’ eyes.

Who is the Design Trust, you ask?

The Design Trust was formed to provide teams with access to some of New York’s brightest visual and product designers during the hackathon. Now making its third consecutive appearance at the TechCrunch Disrupt NY Hackathon, Design Trust offers teams an opportunity to partner with one of their elite designers for consultations at the beginning of their hack as well as help with product execution.

“We’re very selective about the designers who become part of Design Trust,” according to Phoebe Espiritu who combines her experience teaching Entrepreneurship to designers as well as her recruiting experience for TechStars NY HackStars to select and lead the designers for Design Trust. “Fundamentally, we’re looking for designers who know how to ship.”

Designers interested in participating in the Design Trust for the April 27-28 Hackathon can still apply. Deadline for applications is by midnight (ET) April 24. You can apply to join Design Trust here.

We’re also releasing another round of tickets for developers and engineers, so grab them while you can! They go fast.
