  1. Is that... wait, actual design critique? I didn't know that was a thing anymore. I thought we are just supposed to declare our hatred for it (or the people who designed it) and move on? Agreed, though - slight changes that help modernize it a bit. The old one feels very "90's tech company" when looking at them side by side now; not something I would've thought before the update. Extra bonus: they kept the core concept of their logo and modernized it without using sans-serif lower case type (which is a win now, sadly)!
  2. It's a hoppin' place on Saturday nights... they have a restaurant in there too, so I think they stay pretty busy. Definitely worth checking out, though! Had no idea you were in SD!
  3. Mentioned briefly earlier, but after visiting their taproom this spring, I learned that their labels are all painted by a local guy in San Diego. Thought that was pretty cool. They're wonderfully detailed and really stand out on the shelves. I could do with something more original than Brothers for the font choice, but it beats the hell out of what they used to put on their bottles). The beer's pretty damned tasty, too. Personal recommendation... if you like porters and coffee, snag this one if you can find it:
  4. 2 more Dribbble invites up for grabs. If anyone wants one, send me a link to your portfolio.
  5. Any news on the Creamer Awards?

  6. @TheOneAndOnlyMau is back at it again this week with some more amazing work -- puck heads rejoice! In just two weeks, you now have 4 new PSDs to play with In the pipeline - some new Elite 51 mockups, more hockey, and some baseball (from myself, @derschwigg, and @Bmac). Shoot me a DM if you want to contribute!
  7. Here's what I would say to this, and it's not to be an ass, I genuinely hope people follow this advice: push yourself to learn Inkscape or Illustrator. It's part of the reason I started the site: being pushed by others here in my early days to improve my work, and thus, skill in the necessary software, is the only reason I have the working knowledge I do today. Without that push, Mockup Arena probably never comes to life Could I create paint versions of the vector templates? Sure. Would it inspire people or push them to continue growing and learning? Probably not. In the spirit of the origin of the site, I'd love to keep it at the PSD/vector level.
  8. For those on the hunt for a hockey mockup, just added the WCH presentation PSD to the site: http://mockuparena.com/mockup-posts/adidas-hockey-sweater-mockup/
  9. Instead of creating a bunch of posts, figured I'd just post everything that was contributed this week. Head to mockuparena.com/library to download all this good stuff for free (for personal use only, obviously)! Big shoutout to raysox and 1andOnlyMau for their great work! If you want to get involved, shoot me a PM. On the docket: Nike's baseball promo shots, and something for hockey. Just not sure what yet Raysox's NuSoccer templates:
  10. I know I've said it before, but you can always search "invitation" on Dribbble and submit entries to people offering them!
  11. Brandon Moore (brandmooreart), Adam Walsh (missouritigers), Matt Kauzlarich (GFB), CJ Zilligen (CJWorks), Matt Willcox, Chris Clement, Greg Hahn (jaha32) all come to mind. I'm sure there's more.
  12. No worries -- that's why I created this thread, as a kind of repository for invites Also: welcome to the club, derschwigg and wyopokes!
  13. Dribbble is an invite-only site for designers to share what they're working on in 400x300 'shots'. Sort of like an Instagram style site, but with a much more niche community. You must be invited by a current member to join.
  14. I do, and this is the first time I've gotten any invites. I've been pro for almost a year now, been on Dribbble for quite a bit longer -- seems like it happens at random. Maybe some algorithm based loosely on activity would be my guess.
  15. I thought there was a general Dribbble thread, but I couldn't find one here. Starting this thread with the idea of others using it to advertise invites they receive in the future, should they want to reach out to more sports guys to join the community. I currently have 2 Dribbble Invitations up for grabs! Head here to enter: https://dribbble.com/shots/2093576-Face-Off-2-Invites-Up-for-Grabs If you don't have a portfolio or website, feel free to post 3 or 4 400x300 'shots' of your work in this thread. I'll let everyone know once the invites are distributed. Best of luck!
