A network of resourceful techies who kickstart ideas and help you stay accountable

Hi! We are Eric and Aya, techie co-founders of Swurl. Swurl is a community of like-minded creators who want to collaborate and learn from each other. We are currently in the process of building a non-corporate version of LinkedIn where professionals and recent grads can mingle, chat, and learn from each other.

We provide incubator type services where we help you build out your proof of concept and provide workshops where we connect individuals who want to bring their unique projects to life. We are a casual and down-to-earth bunch ready to take any idea and break it down. Eric's background is in IT and music production, he is also the host of podcast "What they talkin". Aya (RISD Alum) mentors students coming right out of art school or individuals pursuing a creative career.

I need a new place to network, share my work, and find jobs. Get me on the waitlist for the Swurl community!

Thank you! Your submission has been received!

How do I get ready for a creative career?

The first thing is self reflection, knowing yourself and your values. Then go to career services, they are waiting for you to utilize them. If you are not in school, the best approach is reaching out to someone you trust on LinkedIn or joining a separate community where you can learn from people who have already worked in the industry. We highly recommend Chris Do's Futur Community & Courses. There are so many directions to go in design and they all require a different knowledge set. If you need any advice on pursuing a creative career you can book a call with Aya.
