About The dSL Project: The dSL Project is a community of designers, clients and potential clients working together to enhance the designer-client experience. The Designers Short List Project (dSL) was developed primarily for clients not familiar with the design industry who are looking to hire a designer but cannot decide which designer or design company to choose.
My goal is to find talented seasoned as well as emerging designers in the industry, ask them 6 basic questions every client would want to know before hiring a designer, giving them a strong starting point in their search for the right designer or design company. If you would like to be a part of this project, simply add your profile to the dSL directory and name your top 3.
