very fitting that this redesign is 100% focused on visuals and no thought was given to actually improving the experience.
Please, check my recent shot at @shittyshot, thanks
Well I wouldn't say no thought went into improving the experience…
One of the best comments I've seen on DN.
And still, there is no sticky menu after scroll... maybe someday...
I actually like the overall vibe. I do wish there were a dark mode. I don't mind having to hover over the images...I feel like this de-clutters some of the UI; if I want more context around an image, I can hover or click into it.
You know hovering doesn't work on touch devices, yes?
Yep, I'm aware. I'm always open to holes be poked in my ideas and beliefs. I can't say I have ever used Dribbble on mobile, though.
That's an understandable argument but making a website means being aware that you don't have a saying over how people will access it.
Clutter wasn't an issue before. Removing the title makes it a slower UX. Some designs are easier to understand with the title next to it. This is just removing shit just to make it look pretty.
pretty much. they're doing the hard "paywall" where you need to sign up to browse and soon will probably hire SEO growth hackers to start taking over web searches for everything just like pinterest did.
Here's a link to their blog post on the rebrand. Provides a little more context on what was done — I like that we get new profile pages honestly. Dribbble Pro members especially.
The old design was looking dated, but the new design is rather generic. Nothing to distinguish it from 90% of the work there. Colours make it look like it's part of InVision.
Still doesn't look like it's gone beyond a place to post the same old trends – over-designed form items and meaningless circular graphs with numbers in the middle (counted six on the homepage alone).
This is taking minimalism too far. I liked reading the title of the thumbnail. It's now slower because you have to hover over the thumbnail.
I dislike hiding content, so the new listing pages are not satisfactory, since they hide the title.
That's a lot of white, and no dark mode? Seemingly also lost the ability to change the size of shot thumbnails.
Did they ever have dark mode? I gave up waiting on most sites and installed Dark Reader
I'm ok with the hidden titles up to a certain point but the ugly gradient background that appears on hover, definitely ruins some shots..
BRING THE TITLES BACK !!!
The whole idea of hiding your followers is a bit ridiculous and hypocritical. If they are concerned with site hits and how many members they have why should I not be interested in how many likes/followers I have. It really comes off as self-righteous and arrogant if you ask me. The redesign is fine the business messaging sucks. This space for designers is turning into an overpriced recruiting site.
