Last week was full of great articles, we had lots of news about the Friend Connect from Google, besides that there was the very interesting Smasningmagazine list of Useful Podcasts For Designers And Developers. There were many more cool posts and below we list our picks of the week
I'm a Brazilian product designer based in Oakland, California currently working for Google as a Staff Designer. I am also the founder of Abduzeedo, an award-winning digital publication about design and a personal project that has become the source of inspiration for millions of designers and enthusiasts.
It's been some time since our last UI Design post, but I was saving some great looking applications for you guys! There are some crazy good looking apps with fantastic design being made right now.
One of these apps is the Swing, a free music app for the iPhone. The designer responsible for this is Enes Danış, from Turkey. He's got an awesome portfolio which you should check! I hope you enjoy these, and if you got your own UI Designs, drop a comment! Cheers. ;)
I love simple illustrations that play with negative space and simple shapes to create more intricate effects. Eiko Ojala goes way beyond using paper-cut style to create incredible artwork that plays with shadows adding depth and style to his work. The level of detail and the simplicity is beyond impressive.
Eiko Ojala is an illustrator, graphic designer and art director living in Tallinn, Estonia. His graphic design illustrations are particularly aimed towards books and magazines.
We already featured the amazing talent of Gerhard Human on our blog and today we had the opportunity to have a little cconversation with this interesting illustrator. So please take a sit and enjoy the interview, hope you guys get some good tips and insights from this.
You can see more of Gerhard Human illustrations at his Official Website.
Again discovered another artist named Rama Allen when I went to the last OFFF Festival in Quebec. His talk was really inspiring and very thoughtful. Rama Allen is creative director based in New York and has worked for clients like HBO, Levi's, Microsoft, Grey Goose, MTV, Sony Records and American Express.
...I develop and direct for multiple mediums from film to interactive to experiential design.
