Remember Hot or Not — that incredibly addictive site from the late 90s and early 2000s where users rated pictures of good looking (or not) people? I don’t know about you, but I spent hours on that site. Fast forward to today, when I find myself spending hours of my time on Dribbble.com — the site that allows designers to post 300×400 “shots” of their work.
So one day I wondered what it would be like if I combined (or mashed up, if you will) the rapid-fire addictive nature of Hot or Not with the beautifully creative samples seen on Dribbble. That’s how Piccck.Me was born — it also explains the three c’s and all the pink.
The idea for Piccck.me is simple: piccck a category; piccck a shot; repeat. Watch the time fly by as you explore the great typography, Web sites, logos and illustrations from the Dribbble community. You can always learn more about a shot by clicking on its title. And now you can pin a shot to Pinterest just by clicking the “Pin it” link next to the designer’s name.
It’s true that at times you’ll be splitting hairs between two great pieces, other times you’ll be picccking the lesser of two evils and still other times there will be a clear piccck — that’s what makes it fun. If that bothers you, perhaps you’re taking this whole picccking thing too seriously. Secret: the scores don’t matter, and as always, no wagering!
Piccck.Me is a non-profit Web site that has no direct affiliation with Dribbble. Work is displayed through the use of their public RSS feeds. Simply put, I’m just a fan of Dribbble (and Hot or Not) and the talented community of designers it represents.
