November Dribbble Meetup Wrap‑Up

Once again we’re astounded at the global reach of the Dribbble community, and heartened by so many folks coming together to get inspired and connect. Over 800 designers attended 17 Dribbble Meetups in 9 countries in November.

Join a Dribbble Meetup near you in December in places like Mexico City, Shanghai, Peshawar (Pakistan), Baku (Azerbaijan) and more. Or, perhaps you’re ready to host your own Dribbble Meetup and help grow the community in your area.

Minneapolis, Minnesota @ Able Seedhouse + Brewery

“Our Minneapolis Dribbble + AIGA MN Cocktails with Creatives Meetup was great! With around forty attendees, we had some Dribbble Meetup regulars and other familiar faces through AIGA. It was a fantastic turnout. Able Seedhouse + Brewery kept the beer flowing and the Blue Fire Pizza food truck kept our stomachs happy. Thanks to Dribbble and Stocksy for providing sweet swag!

The neatest thing I heard happen at the event was when two Dribbblers introduced themselves to each other in person and had been fans of each other’s work for a very long time. New connections were made, quality conversations took place, and the network of creatives in Minneapolis grew. Already looking forward to the next one!”

Florianópolis, Brazil @ Centro de Eventos Luiz Henrique da Silveira

  1. Dribbble Meetup at Interaction South America | Florida 2017

“The meetup inside the Interaction South America 2017 was an incredible blast! We did six Dribbble raffles on the ISA stage during the day, giving away books and other goodies. Seventy two attendees learned about Dribbble and how it works, then we finished the night with two more raffles with books and stuff.”

Bloomington, Indiana @ Cowork Bloomington

  1. Bloomington Dribbble Meetup shot

“We had eleven attendees, mostly undergrads who wanted to discuss their design future and careers. Our guests included Tyler Henke, a designer at Bivvy, a GIS startup, Ron Bronson, front-end and service designer for the City of Bloomington.”

Charlotte, North Carolina @ Levvel

  1. Wins & Losses

“Charlotte’s Dribbble Meetup was very exciting as over forty designers gathered to hear the very talented artist Joey Ellis speak about his wins and losses in his career, all with a gorgeous view of the Charlotte skyline in the background. Bringing the design community together is what we are striving for here in Charlotte and these events are really bringing this to life. “

Reno, Nevada @ The Abbi Agency

  1. Reno Dribbble Meetup

“The first Reno Dribbble Meetup was a resounding success! The turnout was fantastic and it was great to see design students, enthusiasts, and professionals alike connecting around their passion. Not only was the gathering a great way to inspire students to pursue a career in design, it was also a way for us to all share why we love designing.

A healthy amount of craft beers and pizza helped create a relaxed atmosphere reminiscent of friends hanging out, and everyone chatted late into the night. Best of all, it felt like an important first step towards establishing a collaborative design culture in Reno. Thanks to Dribbble for turning our online collective into a face-to-face meeting. We’re already planning our next event!”

Zagreb, Croatia @ Degordian

  1. Dribble Meetup at Degordian

“For the second time this year, Degordian hosted a Dribbble Meetup! This time we had an interesting panel discussion focused on the importance of self-promotion and different ways of promoting your work. Here at Degordian, we cherish the culture of investing in ourselves as well as giving back to the community.

The panel was moderated by Mario Šestak, Interactive Art Director at Degordian. Our panelists were Marko Cvijetić, Marina Matijaca, Marko Hrastovec, and Andrej Mlinarevic.

We wanted to give all of the young designers the opportunity to hear advice from four of their experienced colleagues coming from different areas of expertise, to share their personal practices, and with that, to be better at what they do. We are proud to say that we hosted more than one hundred people! Our heart is full knowing that we gave fuel to their motivation, a bit of know-how, and made a difference in our design community.

Also, big thanks to Dribbble, Sketch, Zeplin and Vip for sponsoring this event.”

Orlando, Florida @ Market on Magnolia

  1. Dribbble Orlando Meetup Nov 2017

“Thank you to all who participated in our last Dribbble Meetup of 2017! We had an opportunity to reminisce about a fun and creative year, enjoy wood-fired pizza courtesy of accesso technology, and write our thank yous to our awesome meetup partners.

The creative team at Designzillas also invited us to their holiday playoff #mockthehalls. Be sure to rebound this shot and exercise your creative muscles until we meet again.

Check out our Facebook Group to see some of these moments! Stay in touch with our community by following us on Twitter, participating in our yearly survey, and joining our #dribbble channel on Slack at orlandodesigners.info.

Thank you for another amazing year!”

Guatemala, Guatemala @ Tech Lounge

  1. Meetup Guatemala

“The first Dribbble Meetup in Guatemala was a success! We had about 30 people attending the meetup. Wiro and SHTTEFAN gave very inspiring talks about illustration and how to pursue opportunities to follow your passion.

I’m trying to help talented people to follow their passion here in Guatemala, where it is hard to find opportunities. Thanks Dribbble!”
