Today we’re fired up to announce a new feature for Pro members. Find Designers is a powerful tool to search for Dribbble members by location, skills, work availability, and more. Location search has been one of the most requested features since we started the site, so we’re thrilled to finally make it available. Being able to wade through the community’s ever-growing talent pool makes discovering and connecting with designers that interest you even easier.
Pro members can start using Find Designers today (just click the new ‘Designers’ tab on the main menu). If you’re a drafted player who hasn’t gone Pro, you can see example results in “Practice Mode” to get a feel for how it works.
We realize that non-players, particularly those looking to hire designers, will also be interested in finding users. We’ll be turning our attention to this crowd in the very near future, so stay tuned.
In addition to search, we’ve added lists of the cities, countries, and skills on Dribbble (accessible from the Find Designers page). This gives, quite literally, the lay of the land of our global community.
We’ve made skills, previously a Pro-only feature, available to all players and prospects. Any player or prospect can now add skills to their profile from the Account page (Pros: this has moved from your Account/Pro page). We hope this will help with finding more members and drafting prospects.
We’ve discovered many new local designers and globetrotting Dribbblers during development. We hope you Find Designers as much fun as we have.
