What’s the skinny with Dribbble?

  • # April 12, 2013 at 2:14 am

    Seen a lot of people mention it but I’m curious if people who use it feel like it’s totally worth trying to become a member or if it’s just “meh”?

    If you are a designer, then absolutely.

    Dribbble is design community. It can be a wonderful source of inspiration.

    However [Dribbble isn’t a place for critique](http://davidnbrooks.com/journal/dribbble-and-criticism). So don’t expect people to give you interesting feedback on your work, in most cases it won’t happen. I guess it’s great if you want positive feedbacks to flatter your ego.

    Sort of like Flickr is for photographers. :)

    I’m not very familiar with Flickr, but for what I’ve seen from it, it’s kind of the same deal yes.

    Some people get very hostile when receiving critique on Dribbble. It’s ridiculous.

    @JoshWhite It’s beneficial in the sense that it will give you more exposure.

    Some people get very hostile when receiving critique. It’s not specific to Dribbble.

    However most people don’t even bother criticize on Dribbble, yes. It’s hardly go any further than *”Whoa, amazing! Love the details.”*.

    I receive constructive feedback from those I keep in close contact with so I don’t have an issue on that part.

    It’s hardly go any further than “Whoa, amazing! Love the details.”.

    Ha. I see a lot of comments such as “Fresh!” or “Sick!”. However, it appears those who put forth an effort into commenting, receives the same. Just look at Claire Coullon’s shots (http://dribbble.com/op45). Then again, it all depends on who takes critique negatively rather than constructively. Granted that there are the occasional individuals who try to bring others down with unnecessary comments.

    Actually, if you ask for critique, Dribbble can be a great place to get it. I think you will find that most people don’t ask for it though.

    It can be a wonderful source of inspiration.

    Lately it’s been a really big resource for others to infringe on copyrighted artwork. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read stories about people finding their work on apparel and other items.

    This is a huge problem in all creative fields. @chrisburton

    @AlenAbdula Unfortunately.

    Thanks for all the feedback – I can definitely see how it can become a source for people to just rip off work. Good discussion :)

    I think I’ll throw my self into the mix and see if I get drafted :P It does sounds like a neat place to get more inspiration and bounce ideas around. I don’t work in a shop, so feedback is pretty important just so I know I’m not in a vacuum :P
