We’re happy to announce that Find Designers, a powerful tool for searching designers by location, skill and other criteria, can now be accessed by anyone. Long available to players (designers invited to post their work) who have purchased Pro accounts, we’ve explored a lot of product and pricing options to expose this feature to a wider population.
Find Designers is clearly a power tool for employers seeking design talent. However, we also wanted any designer—or fan of designers—to be able to grow their local or skill-based creative network. As such, we attempted to make it affordable to anyone.
So how can you get access to Find Designers if you don’t have it already? Pro Accounts, which come with Find Designers, may now be purchased by anyone. To do so, simply sign up if you don’t have an account, or sign in if you do, and navigate to the Accounts / Pro page. There you can see a full description of the Pro feature set and a prompt for purchasing.
Please note that we’ve raised the price for Pro accounts by … one dollar. Anyone can go Pro now for $20 per year.
The other piece of this release is that we’ve tried to improve our sign up process with clearer concepts and messaging. We’ve introduced Scout accounts, which replaces Spectators as the term for non-designers at Dribbble. If your focus is to find, follow or hire designers, sign up as a Scout. If you’d like to be invited to share your work on Dribbble, you can still sign up as a Prospect.
To those who already have Pro accounts—thank you yet again. It was your support that allowed us to survive the early days and your support that enables us to work full-time on this little project that has gotten bigger than we ever expected. CHEERS!
