I joined the community hoping to get constructive feedback on my work , but most people on dribble only say things like “Cool”, “nice shot”, “Clean” and etc. I’m a designer and I’m trying to get better at it, and honestly there’s no way one can truly improve if no one is being honest. I’m seeking some constructive feedback, if you like my shot tell me why, if you don’t explain why because that’s the only way I can truly improve on my skills. Thanks.
I share your sentiment and I agree there's no other way to get better, but I found that designers take criticism very poorly. I don't know what's the reason, if it's cultural (I'm from Europe, I speak mostly to US born people that are notoriously uncomfortable with unvarnished truth) or generational, but having a real conversation about design has become almost impossible. The last place you can find the kind of stuff you're looking for is Dribbble, I think you're going to be better off looking for a local community of designers (or maybe starting your own). I did that when I moved to San Francisco and it paid off.
You're right. I think Designers in general (not just the US) have a tendency on being very defensive over their work. The way I see it if everyone is treating you like your mom does, then you could not never really get better in your field. Sometimes the truth hurt, but you need it (it's like medicine).
