Let's kickstart the Weekend with a book recommendation that I profoundly finished a couple days ago. I wasn't into books until I had more free time on my hands; I also forgot how important it is to read and educate yourself through lecture instead of curated content. There are many reasons why it's still great to allow time to read.
A little tribute to our Friday Fresh Free Font where we would feature a series of fresh fonts for you to download. Do you guys miss it? We can try to bring it back! But for now, let's feature this cool free font called: Agent by London-based Mark O'Neill.
Something we should do more often and not enough; getting immerse into a surf on Dribbble.

I've put together a collection with a mix of design and interactions for your UI inspiration.

Alright, gloves off. The sci-fi sequel movie who has been in the making for the last 30 years is coming to theaters (this week). Let's welcome Blade Runner 2049! Bringing us back in the futuristic universe of replicants, we also get the return of Rick Deckard played by Harrison Ford himself. I can't wait watch this movie, the first mastery definitely changed the genre.
We love seeing big brand identity redesigns and today Dropbox just announced the biggest change in their decade of history. The change wasn't subtle and I'd definitely say that it was for the better. It looks like they are moving towards the creative space, and the addition of colors gave them more personality and differentiation from the stark look of file sharing competitors.

I was watching the Apple iPhone event last month when I saw the iPhone X announcement. Then I visit Apple website to check out the information about the new phone and one thing that kept getting my attention was the new colorful logo. There was something familiar about it, I could not say what exactly. Then I realize that the color effect was quite similar to one of Pixelmator's effects.

Let's travel to Germany with photographer Kilian Schönberger so we can discover the beautiful colours of Autumn captured through Kilian's camera and digital photography.

Moment is easily one of my favourite brands out there. It's a statement that goes a long way from their innovation, sense of humor, content and more. They are actually giving us and building tools to improve our mobile photography. They do believe that the best camera is the one that you always carry with you.
Our good friends at Lunar Saloon, Alex and Meg Griendling launched a really cool project on Kickstarted, the Astro Alphabet. Astro Alphabet, a grow-with-you set of space-themed flashcards, has launched its funding campaign on Kickstarter.
What is Plotagraph? You gotta play with one of their animations to fully understand the concept behind. It looks like a combination of a lopping motion and a cinemagraph?! I am not even sure if it is properly interpreted. But give it a look because, with a beautiful image or concept, the result is simply stunning. We are taking the look at the work of @javografo on Instagram.
Our friends over Adobe is having a busy week with a couple of cool announcements that includes a new add-on that will let you do more within your Google Docs, Sheets and Slides. Announcing their integration with Google Slides to allow users to easily create, edit and collaborate meanwhile using their inventory of images at your disposal.
Nothing like a fresh 3D set to start the day. It's awesome that artists get to come up with so many cool creations, like these by Patrick Foley. These are some very cool abstract scenes, in which materials, textures and lighting are the main characters.
We love Kickstarter almost as much as our morning Cup of Jo so upon discovering this heartwarming project by Chicago Design Museum's Founder and Executive Director Tanner Woodford we just had to share with our readers in hopes we could help bring it to life.
It's been more than 5 days since the release of the iPhone 8 / 8Plus. Do you have one? Are you still indecisive? Aside from all its premium features, I am more interested in the camera since it's more in-line with what is my criteria from a phone, especially being a nerd with mobile photography.
Time for more great artworks here at Abduzeedo! Today we're featuring the beautiful, dazzling work of French artist Juliette Oberndorfer. Her style is just amazing, using darker tones and neon colors makes her pieces stand out really well! Who wouldn't love to have some of these hanging in their walls?
We would like to feature the work of London-based artist named Mark Powell with his bic biro drawings. For this series, he decided to base his drawings on antique maps, it's quite crazy when you think of it. But a piece of history is getting reinvented with his sublime art, must be a nice way to pay tribute to the past.
It is here! The most anticipated iOS that we've been waiting for a long time now. Is it worth the upgrade? Yes, definitely is. Overall, it's more or less the same but it's definitely an enhanced experience from its predecessor. I would say that is 2x the radical enhancement you will experience on the iPad, that's a nice move from Apple.
We've seen some great gadgets and equipment for designers. There are so many cool stuff out there that we could assemble infinite perfect office spaces every week! So we'll assemble some, and we'd like you to help us. What equipment would the perfect office have?
