Dribbbling: An Interview With Illustrator and Character Designer Rachel Alderson


I’ve become fascinated by Dribbble over the last couple years. If your live in any way intersects with the design/advertising/creativity worlds then there’s a good chance you know what Dribbble is. For those that don’t, it’s “show and tell for designers.”

Dribbble is used to source creative work (hire talented designers) and to get exposure (find work). Average everyday people can also use the site for inspiration, to see what’s trending and stay current and to take a break from whatever else they’ve got going on that day.
