Designers are critical to creating technology to solve pressing societal problems. However, design work is complex, stressful, and difficult to sustain; influencing persistence and motivation. CheerOn is an online social support system that utilizes external community members to support designers as they work. Our findings suggest that this support influenced work value and help-seeking behavior.
