Dribbble for entrepreneurs

This articles is discussing using Dribbble from business prospective (entrepreneur wise) prospective and is part of Engagement based dialog via email featuring tools for business.

Dribbble – is invite-based community of designers. Its similar to Behance, but invite-only thing ensures a better quality of work (shots) presented.

Use cases

1. Design references

When doing a design brief – including design references is a huge help for designer (he or she understands the direction and quality of work desired) and for you as you skip the part of ‘searching the style phase’

Here is an example we started from a design process for Avokado (our in house project, web app for learning languages)

2. Code that! technique

My secret weapon to shortcut some things. For example, on a recent side project we forgot to design and code a contact form. Launch time was of much bigger importance, so I Dribbbled ‘contact form’ and just sent over a picture to front end guy (yes, thats possible)

So this reference:

3. Search for companies & freelancers with relevant portfolio

I’ve noticed that for many clients its vital to see that company (or freelancer) did a project in the same or closely related vertical. As if once designed e.g. sport ecommerce store you become a pro with sport ecommerce but barely can handle some fashion online store.

Anyhow, if you do have such concerns (don’t) browsing a Dribbble for a particular tag (e.g. ‘fashion’) is an awesome way to hire.

Note, that since its top talent the price for both freelancers and companies there would be much higher than average. By the way, GRIN tech’s design portfolio is hosted on Dribbble as well (tho I’d say our price is quite average)
