FIRESIDE CHAT WITH DRIBBBLE FOUNDERS, DAN CEDERHOLM & RICH THORNETT
About This Event
Join us at General Assembly for a candid conversation with Dan and Rich, co-founders of Dribble, a place to show and tell, promote, discover, and explore design. Dan and Rich will share their startup story and how they grew the Dribbble community to what it is today.
Headquartered in Salem, Massachusetts, Dribbble began as a side project and is now a tiny, bootstrapped and profitable company helping the world's design talent share their creations and get hired. Dribbble has become a go-to resource for discovering and connecting with designers around the globe.
About the Speakers
Rich wanted to play pro basketball when he grew up, but found himself trapped in the body of a software developer. So he did the next best thing and co-created Dribbble, where he leads software development and product design.
He lives in Salem, Massachusetts with his wife and two kids. Occasionally, he dunks.
Dan is a designer, author, speaker, and dad living in Salem, Massachusetts. He is the Co-Founder and Creative Director of Dribbble, and the Founder & Principal of SimpleBits, a tiny design studio.
Dan previously co-founded the wine community site, Cork’d and has worked with clients such as Google, MTV, ESPN, Fast Company, YouTube, Microsoft, and others. He embraces simple, flexible, adaptable design using web standards through his interface work, writing, and speaking. In early 2012 he received a TechFellow Award for Product Design & Marketing.
Dan is the author of four best-selling books: CSS3 For Web Designers (A Book Apart), Bulletproof Web Design 3rd Edition (New Riders), Handcrafted CSS: More Bulletproof Web Design with Ethan Marcotte (New Riders), and Web Standards Solutions (Apress/Friends of ED). And he’s an aspiring clawhammer banjoist.
