One of our core values here at Dribbble is Community comes first. It goes without saying that Dribbble Meetups are a huge part of what helps bring our community together. Last month, 700 Dribbblers attended 13 meetups in 6 different countries! Dribbble Meetups take all kinds of forms and it’s always fun checking out the different activities that took place in each one. From live design tutorials, discussions, smaller intimate gatherings, to photo booth fun, August meetups were a big hit! Check out the fun that took place at some of these meetups below.
Interested in attending a Dribbble Meetup? It’s not too late to join one near you in September in places like Copenhagen, Karachi, Bangalore, Salt Lake City, and more! No meetups happening near you? Maybe you’d like to host your own Dribbble Meetup and help grow the community in your area!
Jakarta, Indonesia @ GO-JEK Office
“It truly has been inspirational to see all the amazing shots on Dribbble every single day. The only problem is, not every designer on Dribbble — and in this case, UI designer — elaborates on how he or she has come across all the hurdles throughout their entire journey. Meanwhile, it’s important that we, as UI designers, not only discover amazing visuals out there but also learn how to make them. So with that in mind, we thought that it would be inspiring if we brought Dribbble live and gave the stage to senior UI designers who we believed have in-depth knowledge to share their thought processes, challenges, and the do’s and dont’s to other designers.

Austin, Texas @ Handsome
“The Handsome team hosted our first ever Dribbble meetup at our Austin HQ. A little over 100 local creatives came out to hang, sip cocktails, eat nachos, and talk shop. We had a VR station set up by our friends and Banjo, a video game station, a photo booth, and polaroids. Here are some photos from the event! Special shout out to the Austin design community for being a small but mighty force, continuously inspiring and supporting each other, and for making our event a success. Be on the lookout for more Handsome Dribbble events in the future.”
Montevideo, Uruguay @ INGENIOUS
“At the 2nd Montevideo Dribbble Meetup we proposed a different dynamic instead of the usual “speakers and listeners”. This time, we all sat around in a circle and discussed experiences, questions, and problems between designers, developers, and project managers. We shared thoughts and solutions to these problems. It was a really nice and warm experience. The attendees left the meetup full of energy and ideas to think and speak about at future meetups - so mission accomplished!”
Orlando, Florida @ PRPL HQ
“Mark talked to us about his start with Cinema 4D, his sources of inspiration, and how he got to posting a new render nearly every day! Be sure to follow his digital art on Instagram and get your own daily challenge started this year!”
Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam @ GEEK Hub
“It was a great meetup as we had a chance to connect the community and meet talented designers.”
Charlotte, North Carolina @ Levvel
“The Charlotte design community is growing and coming together more than ever with each of these Dribbble Meetups. We had over 60 people show up at Levvel to learn more about design systems and how Abstract can be used in their workflow. Big shoutout to Abstract for sponsoring the event and supporting Charlotte’s design community.”
Coimbatore, India @ Dr.N.G.P. INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
“More than 100 participants attended this event. This meetup was very informative and overloaded with fun. I really thank Dribbble for giving us a chance to host this event.”
Columbus, Ohio @ Cosi Creative Park
“It was a smaller group at the meetup due to the raining! I was still happy with the outcome and the people were really cool.”
