If, you are a Graphic Design Student or an Employer who are searching the internet for Indian Designers for your inspiration or for your next project, then sometimes it got difficult to find a Good Designer. If you are new to this field, you will not be aware of the platforms where you can find good Indian Designers. But, Don’t worry, I will tell you where you can find world’s best Designers some of them are Indians too.
Here, I am talking about Dribbble!
Have you ever listen to that name? No, Don’t Worry I will give you little information about this Platform and I will discuss more about Dribbble in my Future Posts.
So, What is Dribbble?
I hope, who are working in the Graphic Design field, will be aware of Dribbble. But many of you, who just started in this field will not be aware and Even, many of you been listening to this name for the first time.
So, I think many of you know about Twitter, how Twitter works, Dribbble is just like any Social Media Website but it’s only for Designer who can share their work’s screenshot and get feedback from other Designers. As Twitter only allows 280 characters to tell your story, Same in Dribbble, you can upload your work’s Screenshots. Here these screenshots are called “SHOTS” and you got only 48 shots per month and image/shots dimensions are 400X300pixels or 800X600pixels.
It’s like facebook where you upload photos and people comments, same in Dribbble but with a little restriction, here you can upload images and other Designers do comments, tell you their feedbacks.
But why I am talking about Dribbble and why it is important? What makes it different?
So, This post is not about Dribbble because It’s a different thing, I will tell you a little story about Dribbble now and write a different post on Dribbble in the future.
I think I am following this website from 2016 and back then, Not everyone can upload their work on it. Yes, You can see other artist’s work but you cannot upload your own work in it. Why?
Because if you want to upload your work, you have to be “PLAYER” in it and to become player you need an invitation from a “Player”. The Artists/designers who can upload their work be called PLAYERS.
If you want to be a player then you need a very good portfolio because if you have a good portfolio then it will be a chance for you to get invited. Artist/ Designers first look your work then if they found you deserving then they will send you an invitation.
So, that’s why you will only see most Artists and Designers found on dribbble are good.
Oops! I forgot to tell you that, now, anyone can upload their work on dribbble but only you can see your work no one else till you are a player. I mean it will not be seen in their feeds like “following”, “Popular shots”, “Recent shots”. I think, They allowed it recently.
So, Now, I think you have little information about Dribbble and why it is an important source for your inspiration. Now, I will let you know some best Indian Designer on Dribbble.
