For the past year, we’ve sold our own advertising on Dribbble. It put food on the table as we became a company, was a tremendous learning experience, and allowed us to work with some fantastic, like-minded companies, helping them gain exposure in front of the community. But it was also a tremendous amount of work. Our tiny team would prefer to focus on efforts that directly affect the app and the community.
Toward that end, we’re pleased to announce that starting June 1, Dribbble will be joining The Deck: the premiere ad network of creative, web and design culture. This will free us up to focus on Dribbble itself, while still serving high-quality, relevant ads to the community. Going forward, if you’d like to advertise on Dribbble, contact the friendly folks over at The Deck. Your ad will also appear on dozens of other wonderful sites.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank anyone who’s ever advertised on Dribbble. It’s because of you that we’ve been able to bootstrap Dribbble and continue to grow the community. We will forever be grateful for that.
