A couple of months ago we shipped the new version of Abduzeedo to our readers - a new post detailing the impetus and features of the new site is forthcoming. In a nutshell, our main goal was to simplify and reduce as much as we could. One of the areas we decided to invest our time was in subtle little effects like night mode with a dark theme and CSS rollover effects over images.
We’re excited to share a pretty sweet contest we think you all may want to know about brought to you by our friends at LG. We generally shy away from promoting too many contests but this one we think you all may take interest in due to the popularity of the UltraWide Monitors.
We all had a long week of work, school and maybe vacation (some of us) and after spending some time relaxing with family, friends; we'll mostly spend be ready to tackle a new week.
Our good friend Peter Tarka never ceased to impress us here on Abduzeedo, with his inspirational concepts filled with colours, digital CGI goodness and the combination of different elements that could literally go from a little plant to a full-size statue for results to be quite lovely.
Globo.com is one of the most popular web sites in Brazil. I'd say that the main reason is because of the popularity of the TV Globo, they dominate the marketshare, but I have to also highlight that their website is one of the best news site in the world. I know a few people that worked there and they are some of the most talented designers I know.
In a middle of revamping a client’s branding design, as most of us will do, we’ll find paid time to surf around and see what’s going out there as inspiration and for this case in branding. I wouldn’t necessary look for any trends to apply but simply surfing around and let my mind go free.
I have to say, nothing inspires me more than a beautiful editorial design. Simplicity and elegancy, plenty of white space and beautiful typography. Add all of that and you have a truly inspiring design like the Ninety Nine U Magazine. I know their content is also stunning but let's just admire the incredible work that Mark Books put together.
Japan’s railway system is one the the most complex in the World. I’ve personally experienced it a few months back and it’s pretty consisting of many different and connected parts. Once you really experienced a few different trips, you start to understand its complexity and it becomes quite simple.
I’ve always been impressed about the level of details when a designer/artist work on symmetrical art and especially with animal faces. It’s not a new concept but it’s really interesting to witness every single perspective based on their background, inspiration and what drives them to go forward with this series.
Minimalist design is something that is getting more fans and adopters. Apple is a big contributor to this change, they have been reducing their hardware design to the barebones of form. That includes packaging as well. There are some industries that minimalism has always been the trend and I feel that interior design and furniture is a good example, especially the upscale tier.
Motion design is taking over and my prediction is that in a short period of time it will be a required skill for any visual designer or perhaps any product designer. I feel that understanding the principles of animation and the power that it has in driving user's attention can help designers to create simple and more effective interfaces.
