Dribbble designers are the BOMB. How so?

Let’s face it. There are lots of stuff online. And they’re all starting to look the same.

It’s like all of these businesses use the same resources for their graphics!

Honestly, it gets to a point where it’s just visually exhausting.

To stand out, you need to build your own brand, and you need the CUSTOM made assets that go with it.

Visuals are visceral. Their effect is instantaneous. And the signals they send to your brain are lightning-fast, requiring little to no thinking.

So if you’ve got great visuals, all it takes is one look, and the viewer can immediately “feel” whether they’ll like you or not. It could instantly repel them, or it could get your foot in the door.

It’s like direct response copywriting, but in visual format. And to hire talent with the level of skill that can deliver that kind of persuasive imagery, you need Dribbble designers.

So what’s Dribbble? And how awesome are these Dribbble designers you speak of?

For the uninitiated, NO, Dribbble is not an agency.

Dribbble is an online platform. Kind of like Behance. Essentially, it’s like a Pinterest or Facebook for visual creative talents.

Think of it as an online catalog or black book of artists who can create the beautiful stuff that people will associate with your brand.

So, if you want to find a curated (invite-only!) collective of these top-notch designers with ready-to-view portfolios, then the fastest way to go is to find them on Dribbble.

And to make it even easier for you. Here’s a list of Dribbble designers that we’ve collected, just so you can get a quick view of the kind of talent that’s on there.

Check it out. And, if any designer stands out to you, then head over to Dribbble and reach out.

Behold, GoVisually’s shortlist of Dribbble Designers with awesome portfolios like you won’t believe!

Dribbble Designers Roundup by GoVisually

Dribbble Designer #1. Christopher Reath

Dribble Designer #1. Chris Reath

Specialties:

  • Web design
  • Layout
  • User Interface
  • Illustration

This guy has a pretty spanking portfolio. He’s currently part of the hip agency, ueno and has worked with top brands like Slack, Facebook, LinkedIn, & Lux Capital.

But take heed: Chris says he’s got hand to hand combat skills and bad taste in rap music. So it might be best to just hire him remotely for your safety (and sanity). 😀

Bangladesh-based user interface designer and illustrator Zuairia Zaman showcases work that is a delight to the eyes and, may I say, a pleasure to the young-at-heart soul.

No wonder she was snatched up by multiple agencies such as Awsmd (Awesomed), Orizon, and Luova Studio.

If visually delightful games like Child of Light or Ori and the Blind Forest appeal to your aesthetic, then you’ll love the bold colors and whimsical illustrations that make up Zuairia’s style.

Well, I’m not sure what to call him/her. I tried following the links to this designer’s social profiles, but I can’t read Russian either (poor me). So for the purposes of this article, I shall refer to this mysterious artist as “Six”.

Six belongs to two creative teams on Dribbble, namely: Hiwow from China, and Prague-based Brave Mushrooms.

As you’ll see, Six’s designs use striking colors, thick bold lines, and quirky cartoon character illustrations.

So if you’re looking for some catchy vector designs for your brand logo and mascot, go ahead and let Six know.
