    Dribbble

    Show and tell for designers (web interface inspiration)

    JT SinghUrbanologist at www.jtsingh.com · Written
    I love Dribbble, its real fun and the graphics are amazing and great to discover talent. However, Dribbble isn't really about real design, but more so about graphic arts. The issue these days is that people confuse the pretty visual layer part with what design actually is as a whole. Design is most importantly about designing systems, structures, processes, etc. You won't find that on Dribbble. Once again, design is much more than picture perfect motion graphics, logos, etc or how things look...design is most importantly about how things work. :)

    Dribbble is THE place for design inspiration. Warning, it's easy to become addicted.

      Guys, if you can't straight up tell me what is premium going to set me back, you don't deserve the money. Practice of hiding pricing tables is coming back to trend as some new f**cking growthacking strategy and I hate it. It took one generation to convince businesses to be upfront and transparent about pricing. I can only assume why you did it this way, but it is a huge turn off. Maybe only for me, but I suspect there are dozens of us. DOZENS!

    A ton of case studies are cross-posted from Behance, Dribbble, and other sites. Pinterest has superior search to these sites, so while if you know what inspiration you are looking for (branding, UI, etc.) It's great. Not so great on giving original credit to the designers though.

    Pttrns

    iPhone and iPad user interface patterns

    Marlon WayneFounder @ Impulse · Written
    I'm surprised no one has mentioned pttrns, yet. This website is incredible for mobile design as it can be sorted by OS, page type (e.g. onboarding, messaging), and even by device type (e.g. watch, tablet). The name pttrns is entirely appropriate, as you'll start to identify certain similarities across different camera designs, for instance, and have a better understanding for why certain elements are placed where they are. I use this a lot and it's worth subscribing for access to unlimited and the secret Slack.

      Love this platform. I don't have the design skills to bring my visions to life. But it definitely helps me give my ideas a good look.

    User Onboarding

    Onboarding teardowns of popular sites/services

    Dan KaplanI craft stories that break through. · Written
    If the quality of a design is measured in its ability (or not) to reduce the friction required to achieve a desired result, then user onboarding experiences are a great place to find both positive and negative examples. While it's possible that many people who design for a living will reject this, I believe how well and simply the designed thing helps people achieve their desired ends is far more important than how good it looks. And Sam Hulick's User Onboarding has done a better job than I ever could making that concept concrete.

    As much as I love inspiration sites for design, I got lost in them very quickly especially early in my career. I didn't accomplish much, and had hundreds of tabs open on my laptop. I'd recommend getting outside and searching for experiences that need help. A former Product Manager at Microsoft told me that she wanted to find a way to digitally distribute MS Office after going on vacation and seeing hundreds of boxes of her software stacked in a university bookstore. She would have never gotten the inspiration had she not left her desk! Go explore in real life!
