Many of you may be familiar with the design snapshot-sharing community known as Dribbble.com (a place where designers go to post “shots” of what they are working on, whether it be client or personal work). While there is no shortage of inspiring work on Dribbble, I was recently introduced to another great online community that has been pumping out it’s fair share of solid work. That site is Forrst.com.
Forrst not only enables you to, like Dribbble, share snapshots of what you’re working on, but also pose questions, show code examples and links. This combined with an engaging community makes it possible for designers & developers to get helpful (and if you’re lucky, candid) feedback on what you’re working on. I can’t stress enough how much of a difference this makes as a freelancer (especially to a freelancer who sits at home all day long talking to myself …themselves).
But enough chatter! Here are some examples of some talented folks doing awesome things!
