Yesterday, Dribbble announced a new feature addition to it’s already awesome service called “buckets“. If you haven’t heard, Dribbble allows designers to connect with their peers by following each other’s “shots” – 400×300 pixel crops of current work.
Dribbble is show and tell for creatives. Designers, developers and other creatives share shots—small screenshots of the designs and applications they are working on.
The latest feature, buckets, allows Dribbble members to arrange any shots into a collection, however they choose.
I absolutely adore this new feature – and have already created several of my own buckets. It is the perfect way for any designer seeking inspiration to categorize and save creative work that is published on the site.
Although you must be “drafted” (invited) by a current Dribbble member to post shots, rebound and tag/comment – you can sign up without an invitation as a spectator. You still have the ability to follow others, like shots and now, create buckets!
Like I mentioned above, I have already started several buckets focused on the areas of design I am most interested in:
- Fantastic Web Design
- Typography Awesomeness
- Illustration Envy
- WordPress Themes
- Logo Love
- Tantalizing Textures
Feel free to bookmark any of these buckets if you’d like to stay up to date as I add new finds.
I was also curious if Dribbble will be adding the additions and creations of buckets to the incoming and recent activity streams and was kindly replied to by the Dribbble team on Twitter that it will eventually be added!
