Founded in 2009, Dribbble has quickly become one of the largest digital platforms for designers to show and tell, promote, discover, and explore design. With over 500,000 users, 300+ of which call Pittsburgh home, Dribbble is changing the way designers share their work, find new clients, make friends and expand their skillset.
Exclusivity has been a key factor in Dribbble’s success. Borrowing terms from basketball, players must be drafted by existing members in order to upload and share their work. This maintains a level of quality among the work shared, setting Dribbble apart from other portfolio websites, like Behance, that are free to anyone with a computer and access to the internet.
But Dribbble is more than an exclusive portfolio sharing resource. It’s user testimonials prove that users can, and have also:
- Landed dream jobs
- Scored new clients
- Found endless inspiration
- Received constructive feedback
- Made network connections
- And now they can acquire career training
Dribbble Training is the most recent addition to Dribbble’s arsenal of exclusive community features. They’ve partnered with design educators from leading institutions like Parsons, Stanford d.school, and practitioners from the Dribbble community, to bring high-quality online design education to their players.
Open enrollment for the first training program begins soon.
