So, it’s time to announce the winners of the Dribbble Invite contest. Thanks to everyone who submitted themselves and their work, we had a really tough time choosing 7 winners from 49 entries! I’d also like to once again thank Andy Smart, Haydn Woods, Octave Zangs and WelcomeToTheSky for being generous enough to submit invites to the competition.
So, after much deliberation we decided that the winners are Leslie Nayibe, Leonel Toribio, OJ Hornung, Jorge Mancheno, Chuck Gibson, Filipe Guth and Michael Norton. Congratulations guys, now go do some dribbblin’!
To everyone else; Sorry you didn’t make the cut this time, but keep at it and I’m sure you’ll all be drafted in no time, you’re all very talented designers. Good luck!
one two three four seven Dribbble invites to give out; I’m not sure if they still have the allure of gold dust that they once did, but I’ve decided to give it them out here on my blog through a contest.
Update: Andy Smart has very kindly donated an invite too, so now there’s double the chance to win.
Update 2: Haydn Woods has also donated an invite.
Update 3: Octave Zangs has donated a fourth invite!
Update 4: WelcomeToTheSky has donated three more invites! So, for anyone looking to be drafted, here are the rules:
Firstly, link to your Dribbble prospect account.
Secondly, post a link to your best work (and full portfolio too if you have one you’d like to show off).
That’s it. Although, if you have Tumblr and fancy reblogging this post to spread the word to other prospective Dribbblers that isn’t going to hurt anyone. Andy, Haydn, Octave and I will decide the winners on the 15th of May and I’ll announce them on here, good luck!
Dribbble is one of the few sites I have come across where I am usually actually interested enough in their ads to click through and find out more. Today though, is the first day that I have ever actually purchased anything from an web ad, ever.
Stickermule and Appsumo are currently offering a great deal - 50 3” circular stickers for $19 - less than half of the regular price of $62. They are also offering free shipping to the US, although that doesn’t help me at all.
I must include a disclaimer here and note that by raving about this on my blog, I get an extra 50 stickers free, but who wouldn’t want that? I also thought it was interesting to note that it has taken me over a decade of using the web before any advertising my primal urge to reach for my wallet.
If you too would like to have some of this sticky goodness, best not wait - at time of writing there is only 11 hours left before the offer ends.
This morning I checked my mail to find an invite to Dribbble; an invite-only ‘sneak peek’ preview sharing community for designers and artists which I wrote a piece on over at Digital Flair.
Invitations for the service are like gold dust - do a quick search on twitter for ‘Dribbble invite’ and see what percentage of results are people begging for invites vs people offering them. I was lucky enough to be invited by showing my portfolio to Ryan Shelton. Thanks Ryan!
I’ll be using it regularly to preview new work, so if you’re a member, follow me or check out my first shot (actually a piece created for another contest to win a Dribbble invite - I didn’t want it to go to waste).
