Dribbble: Shots of the week - 20/07/2014

Dribbble is a place to show and tell, promote, discover, and explore design. What are you working on? Dribbble is a community of designers answering that question each day. Web designers, graphic designers, illustrators, icon artists, typographers, logo designers, and other creative types share small screenshots (shots) that show their work, process, and current projects.

Every Sunday TDB features favorite shots from random Dribbble profiles. Feel free to share your Dribbble profile here.

Friday Inspiration:

Thou shalt ship. Thou shalt iterate. Love thy reader as thyself. Like their biblical predecessors, the ten commandments of web design can inspire us to be and do better.
