Manchester digital agency e3creative has teamed up with Dribbble, the social platform used globally by designers, graphic designers, illustrators, icon artists, typographers, logo designers, and other creative types to share their work or gain inspiration from others. Collaboratively, the two organisations will a host a summer social event aiming to bring the active online community to life.
Founder of e3creative, Jake Welsh said:” New event space has been constructed, as part of our Manchester studio expansion, which has inspired our teams to engage their creative counterparts and members of the business community in new and progressive ways.
Hosting this event with Dribbble enables us to tap into a network that several of our digital artists have been apart of for a long time and the agency interacts with daily.“
Head of Design and UX at e3creative, Simon Fairhurst added: “Thousands of designers worldwide attend Dribbble Meetups each year, as they’re growing in popularity across creative hotspots in Europe, America, Japan and beyond.
With the creative scene in Manchester thriving, the design team at e3creative are seizing the opportunity to connect innovators, similarly to how the Dribbble social media platform does, with a casual social event for all types of creative professionals to share insight and gain inspiration.“
Manchester’s first Dribbble Meetup could be the first of many for the northwest and features complimentary food, beer, wine and soft drinks, as well as an array of Dribbble and e3creative merchandise.
The event is being held on 19 July from 6-9pm in e3creative’s city centre studio, and the evening will kick-off with networking, followed by a presentation from Simon Fairhurst on how digital is activating artwork in new and unexpected ways, prompting an open-discussion on the state of the creative industry touching on trends, tools and tactics.
