What Has Design Taught You? Enter Shopify + Dribbble’s Design Contest

Dribbble + Shopify Playoff

Think back to the very first day you considered yourself a web designer. Do you remember it? Maybe it was during orientation at a college or university program, day one of your first design job, or the afternoon you first found yourself dreaming in pixels.
