25 Under 25: Young Designers of 2015

More than a year ago, the founder of the Despreneur, Tomas wrote an article 15 Young Designers to Follow in 2014. All these designers are still doing amazing work, working with the top companies and making a huge impact to the design industry.

A lot of things changed since then. Designers are more focused on iOS and Android application design, we have Apple Watch, so we need to design for it and many other new gadgets. What I like the most is that more and more designers are interested in UX and not only in UI, like a few years ago. It was the huge trend that everyone wanted to be a UI designer and design beautiful, but sometimes useless designs. But it has changed!

That’s why today, I’m sharing a list of 25 young designers under 25. Why do we need to know and follow them? Because they are young, ambitious, creative, tireless and competitive. I hope all of them will be a great inspiration for you.
