Working on the web, where quality resource links are seamlessly scarce these days and where the value of a single link can be multiplied if used for a different purpose, with Skout™’s capacity, it means that designers will no longer have the trouble of searching the entire world wide web to identify awesome resources.
Skout™ is a bookmark sharing platform with design resources for designers , by designers! . Skout™ also, aims to become a one-stop-resources-shop for designers with great resources on just one page.
Even killerstartups.com – had something say about Skout,
“Skout™ is incredibly simple to use and provides a no-frills interface while remaining sleek and stylish in its own right. The exhaustive categories are literally chock-full of relevant links, which provide helpful and innovative ideas for web design.”
The site currently has of over 500 listed links, — the objective is not to have the most links though, but rather to list a reasonable number of great links. Users are allowed to submit their resources links to get them listed (and) to share with other Skout’sters.
Skout™ was founded about 6 months ago by Mokokoma Mokhonoana — a very talented graphic designer and web developer from Pretoria. He says, he decided to build up design resources links to ensure that designers will always have great resources available on just one page and to eliminate the process + frustration of ‘googling’ for resources. According to him, there are a lot of sites with good resources that are not always easy to find as their Google rank isn’t that good.
Skout also promotes resources from African creatives wherever applicable. However, Listings are not limited to African design resources websites only. But a part of this Skout project , i think, will only be a success as more resources from Africa are exposed to the rest of the world.
