Just over a year ago, we launched Dribbble Pro to make power features such as attachments, stats and projects available to designers. A bit later, we added the Hire Me button through which thousands of work inquiries have been sent to Dribbble members. Following that, we released Find Designers and subsequently made Pro accounts available to anyone, providing a search tool that any designer, fan or employer of designers, can use to find for members of interest by skill and location.
Seeing Pro features get enthusiastically adopted—there have been thousands of projects, attachments, work inquiries, and location searches—has been truly rewarding. It’s also been a great year for Dribbble as a business. A year ago, we spent a lot of time worrying about how to survive. Now with revenue from Pro accounts and Dribbble Jobs for Designers, we’re focused on how to thrive. We can’t thank you enough for your support in helping us make that leap.
But we can make Pro better. To kickoff the second year of Pro accounts, we’ve launched two new features. For Players, we’ve added attachment and project views to your Pro Stats. Views were made available on individual attachment and project pages not long ago, and now we’re excited to roll these into Pro Stats as well.
We’re also introducing what we think will be an extremely popular feature: Lists. All Pro members (Players, Prospects and Scouts) can now build public and private lists of Dribbble members. You can add members to a list from their profile as well as their player card. Lists not only allow you to organize members of interest into meaningful groups, they offer another powerful way to discover designers by browsing anyone’s public lists.
Our favorite aspect of lists: They also produce shot streams from list members, making it easy to follow subsets of designers. With them, you can quickly tap into the work of designers in a specific area of interest, or view a more targeted stream of shots on days when your Following stream feels overwhelming.
When signed in, you can access all of ‘Your Lists’ from the ‘You’ menu in the header. When viewing your Following page, you can also get to any individual list using the ‘Your Lists’ select menu on the right, which will appear after you’ve created a list.
We’re already using lists at Dribbble HQ and slightly giddy about them. We hope they are just as big a hit with Pro members. Thanks yet again for your paid support of this amazing community. We will keep working hard to make it worthwhile.
