I deliberated for a long time over what to use for my first Dribbble, considering the high quality of the shots I see on here every day.
I chose to show something that I did very recently, for a new startup aimed at enabling students to find awesome jobs.
The site has a very modern, Metro-inspired look, and throughout the development of the site I managed to sprinkle in touches of my own, which are the icing on a very extensive cake. This is a small view of one of them - it's a very chunky site.
In the shot, the user has their profile at 90% completion. The profile photo has a delayed appearance to allow it to load from the CDN, using face detection to crop the photo of the user.
This is a capture direct from the site, so all HTML/CSS/jQuery. The site's still very much in beta, if you manage to find your way over to it. ;)
Many thanks to @Jory Raphael for the invite.

Hey Jon! Great shot dude and welcome to dribbble! Only suggestions would be to try and smoothing the edge on the circles.
EDIT: Did not see that this was a straight capture from the site.
Welcome to Dribbble Jon :3
A few initial things for me would be that the photo doesn't quite match up with the blue outer circle, I'm not sure if that's intentional but if it is I'd make the gap more prominent.
Secondly, personally I'd ditch the subtle striped background.
However, I totally dig the blue. Looking forward to seeing more of this project :)
@Dennis Terrey Yeah, the antialiasing is something I've been annoyed with for a while now. No way round it, though :(
@Dan Gough There's a slight gap - an earlier version didn't, and I think this version looks nicer. But I guess that's me. I'll take a look at making it more prominent! The stripe background is across the whole site. LOVE the blue, too. It's mah fave.
Thanks for the feedback, guys :)
Creative work! I love the idea.
Welcome to dribbble, @Jonathan!
CDN? Face detection? JQuery delays? Nice to see piece of a project that's so far along. This little slice of the very extensive cake looks ace!
@Ted Goas Thanks! The CDN and Face detection go hand in hand - we're using Cloudinary for all our image management. It's brill.
Cloudinary ehh? Looking interesting!
Cool shot, welcome!
