Ever wanted a convieniant and fun way to share what you are working on with others? How about in a full blown online community environment, where you can get advice from others too? All of this can be found on Dribbble. It's an online website that is full of designers answering eachother questions each day. Web designers, graphic designers, illustrators, icon artists, typographers, logo designers, and other creative types share small screenshots (more simply called shots) that showcase their past works, process and current projects. Dribbble is an excellent creative outlook that is worth mentioning on this blog.

On Dribbble you create a profile that can include your name, a little background info and a small bio. You can also link to your other websites and provide contact information so you can be called upon for freelance work as well. Your page will include thumbnails to your works that can be clicked on and expanded. It provides a great overview for your work for others to see.

Upon clicking on an image you are then provided with extra information. This is where Dribbble is excellent. You can gather an images colour palette, learn more about the image with the description box, view the tags used on the image (so you can find similar images for more inspiration), share the image and even view more by the artist.

Therefore combining the elements of community and a love for arts, Dribbble is an excellent online source that everyone who enjoys digital arts should jump onto.

As an added bonus here is a great example of a profile that consists of top quality content, done by a fellow classmate:
