Are there any design critique sites still alive?

almost 4 years ago from , Digital Media Specialist

There have been a few sites dedicated to community critique that have sprung up over the years but have since faded away. Hunie was a notable one that I early-adopted, but found the interface somewhat clumsy and cumbersome. I see now that it's no longer maintained. Dribbble is ok if you have enough people following you who care to give critique (I don't). What are you go-to methods for getting design critiques from the community at large?

    TBH… nowhere. Everyone is basically saying “nice work. check my work“ Even if the work has basic flaws and stuff. (Everyone loves typography and hardly anyone can get the basics right…) I try to get feedback from my work colleagues that are also designers and discuss progress and different angles.

    Not sure what's going on, but Hunie.co is completely off-line. I guess it's a temporary thing as they've been tweeting in 2016 and there was no mention of it shutting down. I think Hunie did the best job in attracting quality feedback. Besides hickups, I think the site was well designed. Clean and all the right features. Too bad it never really took off.

    I used Hunie at first as well but stopped. Dribbble could be better, I once though a system like Stack Overflow could work where poor or meaningless feedback could be down voted or collapsed, but it may discourage any interaction at all.

    Another thing is that on Dribbble unless you are one of the power agencies or top users on there with thousands of followers it's hard to even get your work seen let alone get feedback.

    I've taken to speaking to friends of mine instead when I want to get feedback and talk through a project.

      This. The "portfolio-ization" of Dribbble has not helped with this. What was once seen as a place for in-progress work and feedback has just become another place to put all your finished work.
