Dribbble is similar to a game of show and tell for creative individuals everywhere. Designers, typographers, and developers alike share their “shots” which consist of small images of the designers work and/or applications that they are currently working on. When on Dribbble.com there are 3 ways that users can interact within the network; as a Player, as a Prospect, and as a Spectator. A player is a member of the Dribbble community who can post shots and comment on other designs and applications. A Prospect is someone who has indicated within their Dribbble settings that they would like to be drafted as a Player. A Spectator can be thought of like an agency or observer. Spectators can discover shots and follow design and development folks on Dribbble, although they cannot post shots and comments. Discover Dribbble for yourself, it’s addicting and inspiring!
