Dribbble is an invite-only design network, that allows you to post snapshots ( ‘Dribbbles’ ) of your current work. They’re a maximum of 400×300 pixels, which allows you throw your work out there quickly, even unfinished designs can get feedback.
Those of you who have heard of Dribbble should be psyched to know that my account was given an invite. If you haven’t heard of it, I encourage you to check Dribbble out. It’s surprisingly tons of fun, and I’ve seen hundreds of amazing artists using the service. It’s a great way to connect with active designers, and one of the only ways to see works in progress from so many of our peers.
Here’s a quick look at the service. Each piece you upload can be viewed, commented on, or liked. It’s an amazing way to get almost instant feedback on what you’re working on. Need an opinion on a website navigation? Dribbble it. Need to hear some criticism on a texture you used on a poster? Dribbble it. Think of it like Twitter, excepts with images, and everybody is kickass. Plus I’m on there too, I guess.
I was given one invite, which allows me to make anyone a ‘Draftee’. And I’m giving that away here!
1. Comment on this post! 2. Leave your URL or a link to your portfolio. 3. Tell us something about yourself. 4. DEADLINE – FRIDAY AT MIDNIGHT. JULY 30th 2010. I’ll pick somebody awesome from the comments after Friday, and they can join me on Dribbble! Even if you don’t win, feel free to check out everybody’s portfolios in the comments. That way everybody can get some feedback and fresh eyes on their work, which is always good. So what are you waiting for? Comment!
Update: Congratulations to our winner, Lenny from Hey Monkey! Design. He’s doing some great work, plus we both really like macaroni and cheese, and I’m psyched to see what he’ll show us on Dribbble. There were 18 entries, and it was very (very) hard to pick just one. You all had a great collection of work, I wish I had 18 invites to give away. Hopefully Dribbble will open up their registration process in the future, it would be awesome to hang with all of you outside of the blog and Twitter.
Thanks, and feel free to subscribe to the Fringe Focus RSS in case I’m lucky enough to have this contest again in the future.
