The Uncensored Edition #8: Dribbblification of Design 🏀
For a while now in the community, there has been a crossroads developing on what designers value who are on Dribbble vs those who are not. Our panel of speakers will dive right in and chat about their perspectives on the impacts of "Dribbblification." Does it take meaning away from the work? Is it teaching junior designers the wrong angle to take on their designs? Is it rewarding superficial work? Tune in to find out what they have to say!

Mentor Panelists 🎙️
🇨🇦 Brian Lin - Director of Design at Thriver
I’ve been practicing design for 20 years working in advertising, at design agencies and startups. I’ve had the privilege of being an integral part of helping organizations transition from being ops and/or sales driven to product and design-led for the last 7 years. When I’m not on the job, you’ll usually find me cooking up a storm in the kitchen, catching up on my (never-ending) gaming backlog, or mixing up some deep house on my turntables.
Fun Fact: He's eaten his way across 25+ countries, taking the roads less traveled. Anthony Bourdain is a legend and his inspiration 🥘
