So wouldn't it be cool to not only see the most popular work, but also the most popular designers on the same page? And not just the designer with the most followers, but the one who has posted the most frequently and had the most views on their most recent work.
The way it would work would be to use a similar algorithm to how popular works. It would take how active the designer has been, vs how many views their recent work has had and rank accordingly. This would then refresh after a given period of time.
This will allow us to view the most popular 'active' Dribbblers.
Thoughts on a postcard?! I think it would be a useful addition to Dribbble!

Too busy for me personally. Nice thinking though!
@Ryan Murphy Yeah I perhaps over did it with the work shots, I think the concept was more focusing on the designers trending rather than the work! I might do another cleaner version without the work thumbs! Thanks for the feedback :-)
@Rob Palmer Yeah, fair shout on that one. My major fear with this would lead to another ring of circle jerking, it doesn't differentiate personelle enough from Popular.
For me, if dribbble were to add another section it should be a curated list of 'Hot up & comers'
- New to semi-new designers who are really starting to get frighteningly good!
@Ryan Murphy Love it! This could totally play a part in promoting that! As I am envisaging the popularity (trending) of designers would not just be based on how many views/likes a shot is getting, but perhaps more on velocity of posting vs ratio of views to followers perhaps.
So a designer with only a handful of followers, who is posting very regularly, and their posts have a high ratio of likes vs views will feature higher in this list than a designer who has thousands of followers but only posts once every month or two and would usually have their shot go immediately to the front page of popular.
The intention here is to have a broader promotion of talent, from the new up and comers right through to the more active big hitters!
please make this happen ! haha
I would be tempted to move the follow button next to the views etc. Make it dribbble pink too. Then maybe use the player card or your most viewed, or most recent image for the main image. With the option of selecting this in preferences to what you prefer. I like this idea Rob, good luck to see if admin will go for it.
Hey @Paul Scott ! Thanks for the comments :-) The concept is really to focus on the designer rather than the work, but great idea about using the player card rather than the avatar!
