How to Keep your Standards High for Dribbble

The post that got put into the best bucket in Dribbble is one that I posted 7 months ago on Instagram. This was made for my best friend Natalie because she’s always perfectly groomed and wearing 4 inch heels.

Choosing the Colour


It’s one of my favourites because it’s my favourite shade of red (one that is slightly darker than the red of the Singapore flag (which has a hex code of #d10000). This colour Red is slightly darker with a hex code of #900002.

The level of precision a hex code is able to give you in terms of colour is amazing. Using a tool called ColorZilla (one that looks like an eye dropper and one that Noah Kagan uses as well) you can select the colour of any webpage or picture with 100% accuracy.

The graphic was made in Canva of course.  Here have a go at remixing it by clicking on this link.

The font of the main text is Oswald – which has been my de-facto font for my quote slides so far.   The “Higher” uses a font called Oregano – which is distinctive because of the unique way the G is represented. See next post for the typographical features of G
