Confession: Usually, for us at Dribbble HQ, it’s all about you, the Dribbble community. But for the last few weeks, it was all about Angela, wife of our developer Patrick. Every time one of us signed in to Campfire, the first thing we looked for was news of Angela. Did she have the baby? Did she? Did she? Did she?
One week ago, she did! Angela and Patrick welcomed Henry Douglas Byrne into the world. Hooray Henry! Woohoo Angela! Yippee yahoo Patrick! If we’re being honest, we’ll admit that Campfire seems a little boring now that Henry’s arrived, but mostly we’re thrilled to have Henry out and about.
We’re decorating our birth announcement photo with two recent Dribbble shots tagged “baby.” Left, Aaron Benjamin’s Peanut Onesie. Aaron and his wife ALSO had a baby a week ago. Welcome Alice! And to Henry’s right, Luc Kickken’s There’s a New Kid In Town.
Since Last Week
Lotsa launching in the last week. In addition to Henry, we launched our new blog! You’re on it. Woohoo to Dan and Tristan for leading the charge. We also launched a new feature for Pros, a formal way to link to goods for sale. Thanks to Ian for heading up the development! It’s worth noting, this small feature doesn’t mark a change in direction for Dribbble. We’re merely neatening up a process that many members were already undertaking.
Can you design the best stickers in the Universe?
BOO to You
Dribbble headquarters sit smack dab in the heart of downtown Salem, Halloween capital of the universe. In Salem, Halloween kicks off at the beginning of October and the hysteria builds right up until the big night. Our broom’s in the shop or we’d fly you all here to haunt and howl along with us. Instead, immerse yourselves in your own spooky.
