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.
Continuing our focus on featuring craft projects we bring to you "Atype" - a beautiful project that mixes typography and paper craft. The project was done by Lobulo Design, a designer with more than 10 years experience in working for various graphic design and marketing studios in Barcelona.
“Whatever you want to do, it's possible in paper”. Atype project was born to show the different ways to transform a simple flat letter in a 3D tactile model. I will teach how to make these 3D models on my next workshop called “Make it Bigger”.
One of our colleagues on Abduzeedo was looking for inspiration about Footers. As simple as it is, it was a bit tricky to find some good ones. Why? Because the idea/concept of the Footer is fairly simple, everything that isn't as important as the information we put into the Menu or Hamburger Menu will ended-up in the Footer. Is it a good practice, it depends on how you look at it. For mostly, the hierarchy of the Footer is usually for additional information like widgets, subscriptions, links and etc.
