WANTED: A helpful and friendly graphic design forum.
June 20, 2011 10:20 AM   Subscribe

Can anyone recommend a good graphic design forum? Somewhere I can submit works-in-progress and get constructive feedback?

Besides Metafilter, the only other places I go for professional opinions on work issues are the (excellent) photography forums at Fred Miranda (especially the wedding photo forum). But I am at a stage of development in my graphic design work where I could really use the same kind of professionalism and expertise on a site focused on graphic and web design. Bonus points if there is a "working area" where sharing images is member-only of some sort. I'd rather not share ongoing client work all over the intertubes.

I can't stand spammy posts and bickering, and other poor forum practices. I am aware of Google search results on this topic, so I am just looking for a shortlist.

(also, I tried searching this question here on MeFi, but the search was broken on Google's end at the time and I'm naturally impatient...)

qbn is good. Avoid asking for a ffffound invite and you'll be okay.

The forums at GC Society might be worth checking out. I download a bunch of really cool stuff from their awards gallery.

You really want to be on dribbble, which is packed with designers sharing their work.

Registration is by invitation only, so sign up as a spectator and submit yourself for review.
