Dribbble Meetup 2011

Yesterdayís @dribbble meet up was phenomenal. If you didnít come, you missed out on a KILLER time. Besides putting a face with the names of long time twitter friends, it was amazing to meet tons of new people, hear their stories, share in the excitement and passion that everyone has in our industry, and for life!

It was energizing, revitalizing, and many other kinds of izing. Iím blown away at the passion, drive, and talent that was exhibited by all who came, a small sampling into the creative design community as a whole. There arenít words to describe how incredible it was to meet such high caliber people from around the state of Utah.

We had about 50 people register to come, and were expecting a sizable portion to show. Instead, we had well over 60 people in attendance. Next time, I guarantee weíll have an even bigger crowd.

Whether you came to meet people, create contacts, or just have fun, everyone was able to enjoy the vibe, and intense enthusiasm that came from so many like-minded people sharing their love of design.

Everyone had a extraordinary time, and I canít wait until the next time we can all meet up.

PS: Next time we'll have a better camera than my iPhone :-)

  • Slick write-up man. I'd forgotten about Anthony's photography skills. Though, I'm sure he'd rather be involved and interacting than stuck behind a lens all night.
