Too Good to be True

May 22, 2017

For years, I’ve wanted to be a part of this community. These designers have always been so creative in the designs they present, the ideas that they have, and the solutions that they come up with. I just wanted to be a part to get better. To place myself among the great to one day be great.

Well, that day has come. I received an invite from an amazing friend of mine, Waldo Broodryk. It was out of the blue, too!

He invited me to be a part of the awesome Dribbble community.

Man, I was so geeked and excited!

As most designers I fight the “Imposture Syndrome,” and it’s a constant battle, but I’m definitely humbled by the opportunity to be able to display my best work to inspire others.

The Desire Runs Deep

I remember when I began to take my design career seriously, and I started to look for inspiration and insight. I had heard about Dribbble and decided to check it out.

I was amazed. So many beautiful designs, interfaces, and images. It was a creatives dream come true. So I went to sign up because I wanted to be a part, but quickly found out that it was invite only. Oh, I was sad, but inspired. Inspired to one day be worthy of an invite.

Still Not Worthy, but Humbled

At this point in my career, I’m not worthy of a Dribbble invite. As most designers I fight the “Imposture Syndrome,” and it’s a constant battle, but I’m definitely humbled by the opportunity to be able to display my best work to inspire others.

When Waldo pinged, “Your first shot is critical, make it awesome as those get a lot of views :smile:,” I knew I really had to dig in to have something that other designers would enjoy. I’ve already got the design completed, and now I plan to knock out all the interactions using Webflow.
