What drives Dribble founder Dan Cederholm?
Dan founded Dribble in 2009 with business partner, Rich Thornett in order to create a digital community and space for designers to connect. What started as a side project has turned into one of the largest and well-know social networks for designers. Dribble offers feedback for creatives from creatives. It’s a platform for web designers, graphic designers, illustrators, icon artists, typographers, copy writers, logo designers etc. to showcase their work, inspire, collaborate and get hired. Dan says Dribble is “helping people get noticed that might not have gotten noticed before.” It opens the lines of communication between creatives.
In 2015, the ThemeKeeper team caught up with the Salem, Mass native to learn about his interests and inspirations.
