We are donating 100% of June’s Dribbble shop proceeds to the Equal Justice Initiative, a nonprofit challenging racial and economic injustice.

2015 was a busy year at Dribbble, to say the least. We hired 4 new employees - Alison, Jeffrey, Adam and Hallie - to join Ian, Patrick, Dan and Rich, bringing our team to a whopping 8. Explosive growth! :)

Given our new faces and distributed team, we were thrilled to gather twice this year, once at Dribbble HQ in Salem and again in Chicago at the Dribbble x Threadless Meetup, after which the dev team attended Windy City Rails to get our nerd on.

Product Releases

We had some big releases such as infinite scroll, responsive shot lists, full size shots in lists, and Deals for Designers, we introduced Courtside Stories to better cover the community, and we even launched a podcast.

We also integrated our site with some great products - Slack and InVision, moved our entire technical infrastructure to a new host, co-hosted a big event and saw Dribbblers continue to gather at meetups all over the world.
