Ask DN: Where on the interwebs can I get constructive feedback on WIP designs?

4 years ago from , Product Designer

Lately I've been seeing the phrase "Dribbblisation of Design" being thrown about. Though Dribbble is an amazing platform to showcase your designs, I've also notice over the past few years you can't really get people to post feedback on your shots. I was wondering where and how designers ask for and receive feedback on their work. Thoughts?

    Try this

    • Go to Dribbble and post a shot
    • In the title of the shot append with - 'Need advice!' etc
    • In the description list out the different points on where you need feedback and the context, then ask questions at the end.
    • Use the attachments to add additional flows context if needed

    If you check the shots where users put two designs in a single shot then ask if people prefer the left or right, usually gets a ton of replies, that sort of stuff helps.

    Granted it's more effort but you're asking for more effort from people too

    I do tend to still use Dribbble, but then tweet the shot in the hope that my peers take some time to give feedback in the comments. But yes, it's hard to get solid feedback on there when you're not in the right circles.

    PS. Kinda funny that people are struggling to answer this question, probably because they are struggling too.

    Don't forget to ask your actual users, too.

    Desinion is small-scale A/B testing for designers, though I have only used a few times and am unsure of their user base demographics. In addition there's /r/design_critiques, though you don't always get great feedback there.
