Congrats to Ross Bruggink and his amazing shirt design.
Our most successful playoff to date has come to a close. Two weeks and 469 rebounds later, the Dribbble + Threadless Playoff Challenge was a ton of fun to watch, and the t-shirt concepts the Dribbble community came up with were creative, funny, unique, clever, and other positive adjectives.
We love Ross’ fictional (?) take on a Yeti grooming shop. It’s a shirt we’d wear proudly. As part of the prize, the shirt will be printed and sold over at Threadless, so stay tuned to grab your very own.
In addition to getting his shirt printed, Ross also receives:
- $2,000 CASH
- $500 Threadless Gift Certificate
- 1 of everything in the Dribbble Equipment Shop
- 1 year of Dribbble PRO for free
- iPad mini – Black, Wi-Fi, 16GB
We’re also awarding the top 5 most liked shots of the challenge some cool prizes as well:
- 1 year of Dribbble PRO for free
- Dribbble t-shirt
- $50 Threadless Gift Certificate
And they are:
- Iceberg Threadless Shirt by Christoph Gromer
- Yummie Threadless Dribbble Shirt and Big Rocket company, both by Beasty Design
- Hide n’ Seek apparel by Adam Trageser
- Tacoctopus T-Shirt by Virginia Poltrack
- Ark Design by Mark Conlan
Congrats and thanks to all who entered and voted. And a very special thanks to our friends at Threadless for partnering on an amazing Playoff!
The challenge is simple: design a logo for a company that doesn’t exist. Perhaps you’ve always dreamt of owning your own record store, or an exotic fish emporium. This is your chance. Want to design the branding for the first mini-golf course on Mars? Make it so. Let your imagination run wild!

Once again, we teamed up with our friends at Squarespace to celebrate a launch of theirs, letting the Dribbble community have some fun and stretch their creative muscle via a Featured Playoff. This time around, it was for Squarespace Commerce, a new way to manage and sell products on the Squarespace platform.
We’ve teamed up with our friends over at Squarespace to celebrate the release of the all-new version of their fantastic website building service. The official Squarespace Rebound Playoff kicked off last Thursday and has already racked up 200 rebounds of, dare we say, some incredibly creative takes on the number 6 and the Squarespace brand.
You have until next Tuesday July 31st 4pm EST to enter and vote for your favorites. The top 6 rebounds will receive some awesome prizes from Squarespace (including a free year of Squarespace 6), and one grand prize winner from all the rebounds (regardless of likes) will be chosen by the Squarespace team to receive a new Macbook Pro with Retina Display. Whoa.
So go get creative! Rebound, vote, have fun, and happy Dribbbling.
After several days of rebounding, the buzzer sounded today at 2pm Eastern. The United Pixelworkers / Jon Contino / Dribbble playoff has come to a close. We loved the creativity that went into these shots: ficticious basketball teams from the 1920’s from Salem, Pittsburgh, and Long Island.
The top winner for the Long Island Aviators was by stephen skurnick:
The top winner for the Pittsburgh Workers was Nick Slater:
The top winner for the Salem Dribbblers was Ryan Putnam:
There were also three additional winners chosen for each team.
Team Dribbble’s pick for the Salem Dribbblers was by James Olstein:
Coach Jon’s pick for the Long Island Aviators was by TJ Rippelmeyer:
Coach Jay’s pick for the Pittsburgh Workers was by Michael Spitz:
