Because it’s Memorial Day in the states, I thought I’d give my dribbble picks a clear + patriotic theme. Good old red / white / blue. I particularly love that red pattern in the top right corner … man, so good. I’m not working too much today since it’s a Holiday and we leave for France tomorrow, but I thought it would be nice to check in quickly. Anyone have any fun plans today?? Hope so!
I’ve been absolutely fascinated by details lately. When it comes to design, those are the little things that make a project feel whole. Whether it’s the little rounded square in the “R” mark, the branch outs of the “brand new week” lettering, or precisely placed overlaps – it’s all done with intention. It feels whole. Lately, I’ve been focusing on just that. As a designer, we get to a point that feels good. But pushing yourself just a little bit further – whether it’s by adding new details or re-thinking composition – feels GREAT. You’ll know when you hit that magic sweet spot.

I was paging through some of my favorite dribbble favorites and noticed a recent trend : teals, yellows, and neutrals. I’m also really enjoying the different techniques designers use to make something look very “modern vintage.” I know a few ways, but would love to learn more. Perhaps an afternoon spent with google + illustrator is in order. Which is your favorite one up there?? Gotta say, I’m favoring that cute little wiener dog up top, I mean, c’mon. How could you not?
I picked out these dribbble favorites this week because I was really digging all the colors. Plus, it’s interesting how work from completely different designers can look wonderfully consistent together. Sometimes I like challenging myself and make sure all the shots I pick out look cohesive. Like these or those. It’s an eye pleasing exercise! Does that make me nerdy?? Oh well. Thanks for being inspiring as always, dribbz.
Here are my latest favorite dribbble picks to share with you all!! I’m constantly inspired by this little site and absolutely love seeing what everyone is up to. It’s a constant sneak peek, which is pretty great. Plus, an insight into the design process that you can’t really see anywhere else.
