My old friend Dan Cederholm joins the show. His work at Simplebits was profoundly influential in the early web, but he may be best known as the cofounder of Dribbble. We talk about this history of that community as well as what it’s like to build a reputation as a designer today.

Overtime is Dribbble’s audio companion and our first foray into the world of audio. In this interview, Dan speaks with letter, logo, and font designer, Ian Brignell.
I am a lettering, logo and font designer based in Toronto, Canada. Also, I like to barbeque on my balcony during snowstorms.
Ian’s impressive client list includes Budweiser, Smirnoff, Harvard, Dove, Hershey’s and many more. We were honored to talk to Ian about his background, his process, tips for designing and lettering, collaboration, and his advice for young designers.
Dan also asks Ian about a few of his Dribbble shots and the story behind them. Ian shares his process for designing the Coke font and the Budweiser label pictured above. He also told us about his font foundry, IB Type, where he has fonts for purchase. So, not only can you admire Ian’s great work, but you can use it in your next project.
It was a really great conversation and we’re excited to share it with you. Enjoy!
Special guest Dan Cederholm joins Andrew Clarke this week to talk about making money by making things, how making great schwag makes a great impression and what happened to Foamee. They discuss why on Dribbble it’s important for business to not get in the way of a great service and with Dan’s new book coming up, they talk about the process of writing and whether second editions are worth it.
Adam Stacoviak is joined by Drew Wilson and Jared Erodu along with special guest Dan Cederholm of Dribbble and Bullet Proof Web Design fame – topics include being disorganized, Kevin Rose and the Milk team get “aqui-hired”, awesome shots on Dribbble, Dan on writing CSS the Sass way, and so much more!
On today’s show we recap the fun had at the first-ever Austin Dribbble Meetup. It was a grand ol’ time. We also dig into the relatively new web trend, “Responsive Web Design”. We’ll talk about what it is, our changing thoughts on it, the results of our definitive facebook poll, as well as explain our in-house approach and tips and tricks we’ve learned along the way.
First up is my chat with Dan Cederholm, designer, author and co-creator of one of the most popular design focused apps Dribbble. Thanks to Dan for taking the time to chat.
