Joining a Community of Creatives

On any given day, you’ll find me pitching creative to potential clients, going back and forth on logo revisions, or leading the creative department on a debrief for a new campaign. Being the voice of the left-brained side of the office is already my job, and now I’m taking that voice online.

“Creatively Speaking” is my monthly chat about all things design-related.

First, let’s talk about Dribbble.

A sports website? A term for drooling from the mouth? What is this website with this obvious misspelling? And what does basketball have to do with graphic design? All great questions.

Dribbble was founded in 2009 and is an invitation-only social platform for a community of designers, illustrators, artists and creative. Once accepted into the Dribbble atmosphere, creatives can share screenshots with other creatives, post comments, likes, etc. Think of it like Instagram for artists.

“The name Dribbble came about from the dual metaphors of bouncing ideas and leaking your work,” said Dan Cederholm, co-founder of Dribbble.

Of course, I wanted to make sure that JP Marketing was involved with the latest and greatest. So over the past few months our creative team has been uploading sneak peeks of our latest work.

Take a behind-the-scenes, over-the-shoulder look at our work in progress. Some is client based, some is purely passion work. But all of it shows our creativity and love for the industry that we work in every day.
