21 Intriguing Dribbble Trading Charts

Dribbble is a site that its founders call “show and tell” for graphic designers. Designers must be invited to become members by other designers. This keeps the quality of designers high. Members can then share small screenshots of the projects they are working on.

The site uses basketball terminology because one of the co-founders, Rich Thornett, once wanted to become a professional basketball player. Ah ha! Now you understand the name of the site, Dribbble — as in dribble a basketball. Dan Cederholm is the other co-founder. Dribbble.com started as a side project, but is now a “small, started, and profitable business,” according to the website. He is based in Salem, Massachusetts.

In keeping with the basketball theme, here are a few other things you should know. If you are a designer but not yet drafted as a player, you can sign up for the prospect list. But if you are already a player/member, then you can add a link to your website with your portfolio. There is a Pro level account which offers additional features to show off your work and allow others to hire you.

And what about people like me, who aren’t designers but might be looking to hire designers? We may use the site to “spot” new talent. And that’s exactly what I did. I spent about an hour on Dribbble looking for cool business designs and came up with the following 21 examples of business charts to share with you. Each caught my eye for a different reason. Some make you smile (3. Social Fish), some have an artistic take on the familiar (4. Facebook Concept), have a witty topic (13. Instagram Kitty), and some are just plain gorgeous (21. Dribbble Invite ). Enjoy!
