    My thoughts are there is no "Dribbbilixzation" of design. People have always followed trends in design set by others. Where they got their inspiration from varied and while the internet makes it easier to look at others work, it's not a new concept. Books, trips to the store to see what others were doing, traveling all are ways people got inspired others were doing and they are still used alongside look ing at sites like Dribbble, Behance, or Awwwards.

      This.

      Dribbble is a community. Communities are what they are because the people in them have things in common. For Dribbble, it ends up being certain visual styles and ways of displaying creative content.

      Granted, a lot of content has been created for specifically for like-chasing on the platform, but that is inevitable for any platform with a similar social construct. And there is nothing wrong with that either. It's not like there is some external supreme visual style out there that dictates how design presents itself, and by jumping on design trends we go against it.

      When it comes down to it, we design for people. People have likes and preferences. Catering to those likes and preferences will get you more recognition within that space. There is no "right way" to use it, people will use it how they do.

        I agree with you here. I just wish people were more into doing progressive stuff like side-projects or something that carried some value and meant something to them rather than just creating visual stuff to attract other designers.

          Perhaps they are, there just isn't a site that focuses on these kids of projects.

          What part of the creative process are you wanting better representation of?

          I think since a large part of the creative process is often not visual, it is difficult or cumbersome to capture that in a single snapshot. The challenge there is that it takes more effort to document process stuff because you are in the middle of doing it. Posting the finished product is a lot less intensive.

          I've found some great insights into the process on Youtube, Skillshare and even Behance/Twitch streaming—places where you can get an over-the-shoulder type of perspective.

    Let it be. No harm done. Unless some people from outside the design community takes those artificial designs as traces of wonderful UX/UI skill actually based on real life experiences. Then this sucks a bit.
