From Abduzeedo Motion design: UI and UX Collection  Motion design is intrinsically useful for product design, especially when designing for mobile devices. Even experience designers might have a difficult time evaluation solutions on the computer without testing on the device. In addition to that, there's so much information that can be lost by using the old approach of static mocks. Those are just a couple of reasons why motion design and prototype are mandatory steps during the product design process. After Effects, Principle, Framer, Javascript or straight native Java or Swift are some of the tool available. They all have their pros and cons but the important thing is that they all gives us that extra level of information to helps us on our decision making process to deliver the best user interface.   MacBook Pro Review - Love and Hate with the Touch Bar It's time for our honest appraisal of the MacBook Pro. After almost 5 years using my old MacBook Pro, a first generation retina display, the time had come for an upgrade. I've been chomping at the bit for Apple to announce a new laptop because mine was having a lot of issues. Be it the bevy of dead pixels, battery life of less than 1 hour to the most frustrating of all, ghosting effects on my screen. So finally, at the end of last year, Apple announced the new MacBook Pros with the Touch Bar. Time to hit the savings and purchase one.   Illustration: Grimms' Fairy Tales by Ale Giorgini  Grimms' Fairy Tales Illustrated by Ale Giorgini is a set of illustrations of wallpapers based on classic fairy tales. Whichever one is your favorite, it isn't hard to get glossy eyed and nostalgic over the forever legendary Brothers Grimm tales. With his brilliantly retro flair, Italian illustrator Ale Giorgini evokes the same feeling and transforms the iconic tales of 'Little Red Riding Hood', 'Snow White' and 'Hansel and Gretel' into stylish, contemporary illustration pieces for the home.   Interaction Design: Behance Desktop App Concept  As a designer, I am a frequent user of Behance. It’s a beautiful platform that featured some of the best artists, designers and illustrators out there. One thing that annoys me though is the design hasn’t changed much in the last few years. For example, those gradient buttons are hitting me hard! Let’s take a look at the work of Nora Park who decided to take the platform for an overhaul concept. Overall, I really enjoyed her interaction design and direction for Behance, too not keen on the interactions but in the “ensemble”; it’s a lovely concept!   ABDZ Photo Challenge: Our #abdz_strideby Picks Here we are, with more than 100+ posts over Instagram with the hashtag #abdz_strideby, we say it was a pretty successful first Abduzeedo Photo Challenge. It was a lot of fun to go through your submissions and having a chance to witness the beautiful parts of the World that you guys lived in. I hope you guys have enjoyed and if you have any comments/suggestions, please do share with us via Facebook or Twitter.

There are so many things to love about this project and the fact it's from 2 years ago is even more interesting for me. The watch brand was created by Astro Studios designed to express the things that make the West Coast so special: Free thought, pure form, and always living on the leading edge of America. The outcome is a truly beautiful watch with a mix of style and function well balanced out.   Illustration: Johnnie Walker x Pawel Nolbert  We would like to share this illustration project by the talented Pawel Nolbert for his work with the known Whisky brand Johnnie Walker. Approached by Diageo/LOVE, his work was applied to multiple labels from Johnnie Walker but also for limited edition gift packs. Going through this project ad you can’t help to notice how gorgeous it is and it’s great that Pawel shared some of his process on his Behance. Make sure to check it out!   Graphic Design: Pictogram music posters 2017  Pictogram music posters 2017 is a graphic design project shared by Viktor Hertz on his Behance profile. The amazing thing about this project is that we featured Viktor back in 2011 when he posted the first version of this idea. He picked 15 songs from different artists to create a series of minimalist vector illustrations. It is also great to see the evolution of his style from the first iteration to this one. The forms got much simpler in a way, and there's a bit more color without the need of textures.   Mobile Photography: Introducing the Next-Gen Moment's Cases and Lens  On Abduzeedo, we do enjoy brands especially independent brands that are the game changers in their areas of expertise, for the main reason to always bring the best to they can accomplish. It is the case for Moment a brand that we dearly love. They are back with a Kickstarter campaign to introduce their latest novelty for mobile photography by bringing to production: a Battery Photo Case, Photo Case and an all-new Wide Lens. Let’s give it a look.   Interaction Design: I, Steak Mobile App Nowadays, cuisine is something that we have less and less time to give during the day. Even some of us, don’t even how to boil an egg! We are featuring this interaction design about an app called: I, Steak. It’s an assistant app that will help cook the perfect steak! It’s a pretty cool idea since it is quite a task from the picking, shopping and of course cooking. I love the minimal approach!

What equipment would the perfect office have?   Booking.com Design Concept booking.com is the one of the most well known websites for travellers, it's a huge company with an amazing team dedicated to bring the best service for their users, this scenario makes hard to propose any suggestion about their UI, but this design concept deserve a special attention, it had study, research and a beautiful final result.   Product Design: Portable Wireless Keyboard by Orée Artisans We would like to share this cool product design made by Orée Artisans, what they built is a range of lasting technology like accessories for your everyday life crafted by a solid piece of premium wood. We are featuring their portable wireless keyboard called Board 2 that is crated to last and in goal to enjoy your natural touch.  Architectural Photography by Andrei Tudoran Bold is a architectural photography post with the main subject being buildings and architecture. It was shared by Andrei Tudoran and it is a series of photos on building details with a very warm mood. The contrast between the building and the cyan sky is quite beautiful, especially the contrast with the white or beige concrete structures. I have been trying to take a photo a day this year and buildings with the sky in the background is my number one choice. I wouldn't consider my entries as architectural photography, but what Andrei did here quite well is what I have been trying to achieve with no much success. Well, it's been raining here in Northern California quite a bit.   Interaction Design: Sing Movie Official Site I have to admit something, I never enjoyed the official sites from movies. They usually go with a simple (and boring) site with a trailer. Maybe too simple? That’s why we would like to share the interaction design for the official movie of the movie Sing. Loved the fact that the mighty folks from Watson DG decided to create an experience in reflection the movie instead of taking a simpler route. Let’s give it a look!   Sonoma weeHouse, a Beautiful ultra-minimal home If you are interested in the ultra-minimal home idea, you've come to the right place. What is an ultra-minimal home? Well, take a look at this amazing project by Alchemy and you will understand. The Sonoma weeHouse is based on Alchemy's original weehouse. Their original project is a modular prefabricated housing system that optimizes many elements of the traditional design-build process. Here they took the basics of the original and gave it a very nice outcome. The result, as they say, is a small, ultra-minimal, high-end home. If you were still not sure that less is more in architecture too. Sonoma weeHouse will make you change your mind.

Pingu via Product Hunt Get the best prices & delivery times for any product GradientDaze via Product Hunt Gesture based gradients never felt so good From Abduzeedo The Perfect Office - Heng Balance Lamp, Mission One Computer and Office Ideas    Interior Design: NL2 SMA NL2 SMA is an interior design and architecture project shared by Anton Siriak. I rarely post about interior design, I usually write posts about architecture, however there's something about this project that really caught my attention. I am fan of simple interiors, minimal. I love when everything is sort of hidden and whatever is visible is because it has a purpose a bit more than just decoration. Anton's project embraces all of that, with the addition of a stunning outdoor space. Check it out and let us know what you think. For me, I will just dream of having my house looking like that, one day.   Illustration: The Dark Knight Trilogy by Krzysztof Domaradzki We are sharing an illustration poster series about Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy by Krzysztof Domaradzki. I have been a huge fan of this trilogy because it’s a modern take of what Batman could have been in our times. With Christopher Nolan genius direction, it’s a trilogy that was truly memorable filled with so many great moments of cinematography. Along those lines, Krzysztof’s work on this illustration sets the tone right with its monochromatic colour scheme.   UI Design - Trello Atlassian Redesign Concept Trello Atlassian is a UI Design concept project for the redesign of the popular service Trello. It was originally shared by the Netguru Team and it's an extensive exercise on how to improve a tool that their team use daily. They also got motivated by Atlassian's acquisition of Trello and that motivated them to think about a complete visual refresh of the product and try to make a little bit "slicker" - as they mentioned.   Everyday Miniature life by Tatsuya Tanaka  Do you like photography and miniature scenes? You have come to the right place. And you will certainly enjoy Japanese artist Tatsuya Tanaka's work. He creates inspiring and intricate everyday life scenes in a miniature world. A place where broccoli becomes a huge tree. A world where tiny men operate sushi trains and much more. From skiing to meetings, swimming in a guitar to food markets, the artist has an unique style to portray daily things. Since 2011 Tatsuya has an ongoing project called Miniature Calendar. Miniature Calendar is a project where he portrays everyday life scenes depicted in diorama style. He updates his website daily with new pictures. The small worlds that he creates are filled with creativity, humor and personality. The images will totally take you on a trip through a tiny parallel universe.   Motion Design/Typography - Skatepark Skatepark font as the name suggest is a typography but also motion design project shared by Keisuke Terashima. Throughout these 10 years of Abduzeedo we have seen many very creative projects where the designer explores different ideas for a family face, however, this one that Keisuke put together has to be one of the coolest. Perhaps, because I am a fan of skateboarding, but the idea of mixing skateboarding and its beautiful tricks with letters reproducing obstacles is nothing less than amazing. The animations are top notch as well and aligned with a cartoonish style it reminds me of a video-game. Anyways, enough said, check it out the full alphabet with tons of flips, grinds and other rad tricks.

From Abduzeedo Architectural Illustration - Famous Buildings   Architectural illustration Progress Profiles is a illustration project shared by Andrea Minini. He was commissioned to create thirteen architectural illustrations reproducing some super renowned buildings around the world. The most beautiful thing about them is the simplicity and the use of lines to highlight some of the iconic features of these buildings. It's a great use of the Blend Tool in Illustrator, at least that would be the way I would do it. Actually we have posted some tutorials here on ABDZ about that, like the Offset Path Effect/   Font Family Set: Cartel Deux   We are sharing this beautiful font family set with lots of goodies as well by Firman Suci Ananda called: Cartel Deux. It’s a lovely typographic set with a script and serif style for your next display or title designs. Personally I am always being a bit too skeptical with script font because there is always some letters that you just aren’t happy about but this set is quite working out pretty well as a whole. Hope you will enjoy it as well.   Design Books: Suggestions for the New Year   This week is the second or first, in my case, week of work in 2017. With every new year there's a lot of resolutions made, areas that we want to improve or things we want to change. I feel that for me I want just to focus on less and the practice of minimalism. For that reason I am also trying to focus more on design books rather than just online. I am trying to savor the information a bit more instead of gobbling up everything I might think will be inspiring or useful. Most of the time that ends up not being the case, but just the fear of missing out, resulting in a pile of articles to read or links that, without context, have little to no value.   Industrial Design: Motorbike from Great Japan   I stumbled across what Honda was working on a new self-balancing motorcycle, it was pretty cool. Seeing this bike got me wanting to surf on the process behind the industrial design work of such concepts. I’ve found this stunning-looking motorcycle concept by Artem Smirnov and Vladimir Panchenko. Their concept is about their passion about the Japanese approach to design and it’s quite lovely what they have done.   Editorial Design: The New York Times Redesign Concept   The New York Times Redesign is concept editorial design project shared by Slava Kornilov and Bohdan Kononets on their Behance page. I have to say, I have seen quite a few of concept projects but as extensive as this one I still have to see. I understand the value of an exercise like this, but I cannot imagine the amount of time necessary to put something that detailed together. I also love to see what people can come up with when you don't consider some important factors like density and monetization. Nevertheless, it's a great editorial design project and quite inspiring in many aspects.   Branding: 10Clouds Rebranding Project   We are taking a look at the rebranding of Warsaw-based based company called 10Clouds. It’s a fun approach branding project because I would say that I love their art direction towards an inspired-80s universe with a dark colour palette and vibrant highlighting colours like purple, turquoise and pure white. They got me with the pink photography!   Digital Photography: Bridge in the Fog   Digital Photography is such a large medium to explore, many kind of subjects or categories to shoot from. There isn’t one category that is particularly more popular (in my opinion) than others. Each one has their own flair and that’s what makes it even more enjoyable. Let’s take a look at this series by Łukasz Breitenbach entitled: Bridge in the Fog. A moody photographic series with an eerie and mysterious feel to it, quite inspiring to appreciate the contrast of the colours with the light.

He worked on the identity, branding and web design for a capsule boutique hotel called REBOOT located in Singapore. The design layouts shared a common path for the users to easily navigate through the steps and stationery.   Branding and Visual Identity: KKAW   KKAW is a branding and architecture project shared by Amanda Rybicka. It's a simple, yet elegant example of a visual identity construction focus on typography to create a strong brand. We said in the past that for some reason the architecture subject gives to designers the opportunity to simplify forms and explores reduction like any other industry. It seems to be the norm for projects like that, but still they are very inspiring, at least in my opinion, because the hardest thing is alway to create a minimalist design that doesn't feel ordinary. I believe Amanda achieved that.   Product Design: DIY Paper Polygon Art by VIU   With the new year at the door, comes the time for resolutions and ideas for what's ahead. For example, we were planning some renovations in the apartment and my partner stumbled across this really beautiful set of DIY paper polygon art for a room concept. After a little research, I've found the brand behind this product. It’s great to know that it’s a team of creatives behind this product design, can’t wait to order mine.   Illustration: The New York Times Gift Guide   New York City, it’s been quite a long time I last visited this city. It must be pretty at this time of year with the winter wonderland, well we are featuring an illustration/animation project with Paris-based illustrator Florent Hauchard with Parallel Studio for New York Times. The final result creates the rightful atmosphere of a cityscape scene with so much history and architectural features.   Monitor Review: LG UltraWide 38   To start 2017 I’m pleased to share a pretty stellar product review. I teased a bit about it when I posted a photo on Instagram a few weeks back so here’s the full monitor review of the LG UltraWide 38 38UC99.   Industrial Design: Connected Air Purifier   Connected is a product design and industrial design project shared by N U Y N on Behance. The product is an air purifier. The problem they are trying to solve is simple, most people close their windows and use air purification devices when fine dust density are serious. However, experts suggests to open the window for a while to ventilate the air indoor. Despite the suggestion, people still tend to shut their windows to prevent the air from coming. Another interest finding is that people also fail to check the lowest fine dust concentration during the day. That would be me :)   Unsplash Picks: Wander   This week, we are going with a theme of Wander. With the new year comes with new resolutions, the tradition! For me, it’s more about time, giving yourself some relay or free time to do something that you enjoy. With my current situation and I am sure most of you; time has become a luxury. What do I love to do during my free time? Wander. The simple joy of walking around and to appreciate the scenery whenever it is home or elsewhere around the World. Just wander!

It's the best 4k monitor you can find out there.   Amazing LEGO universes created by Photographer Samsofy Sofiane Samlal, aka Samsofy, is a very creative and talented photographer based in France. Samlal decided to start creating LEGO universes while he was taking care of his son. He thought LEGO scenes would be a great way to keep himself busy during nap times. And we are totally glad that he started this work. The scenes that he creates are very inspiring. Filled with details and personality the pictures certainly get our attention and transport our imagination to whatever we see pictured there. From movie scenes to everyday life stuff, Samsofy has great images to show us. Check it out!   #Happy10Abduzeedo - Interview with our Founder Fabio Sasso This month, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of Abduzeedo. This is very special to us, Fabio Sasso created the blog as a side-project after he lost everything from a robbery back in 2006. It was in his way for him to backup files but also bookmark things he liked and inspired him. Since then his work has been used, shared and featured many times but beyond all, his goal was to inspired us to create and make more. That’s the philosophy and minset of Abduzeedo that will always lives on. Part of the celebration, we would love to share a sit-down we had with Fabio about his life, 10 years of inspiration and more. Hope you will enjoy it!   #Happy10Abduzeedo - Past Tutorials  Part of the celebration, we would love to take you guys on a trip down the memory lane about our past tutorials. We've been getting lots of requests to have more tutorials on the blog, we'll work twice as hard in 2017.

Let’s take a look at the work of Pixel Jeff who is a Pixel Artist based in Taipei, Taiwan. Let’s enjoy his series at making some different landscape backgrounds with the main characters from Rogue One, including the Darth Vader.   Kyoto Wok-Cafe - Interior Design & Branding Today, we would like to share this Interior Design and Branding project from an asian food cafe based in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. Behind this project, we’ll have a collaboration from teams in interior design & architecture, in identity & graphic design, in print design and in photography. All together to bring a space inspired by the stylish palette from Japanese cuisine. From my perspective, I love how the light comes in during the day that highlights the chairs and floor. It creates such an atmosphere and for the branding; they kept a minimal approach to the design and like how the takeout is that one thing that differs from the rest of the stationery.

As the name suggest the use of color and the contrast of the bright yellow and the cold cyan create a beautiful backdrop for the main subject, a redhead woman. In addition there's a surreal feeling because of the air balloon. It's hard to describe this beautiful work in words, take a look and let me know what you think.   Double Exposure Neon Life Series   Nowadays, we all the tools that is available for our efforts to make more. We have a great variety of things we can do and even more you can create without even touching your computer or laptop.

We are taking a look at this photo series by Louis Dazy and I just love this series for many thing including the Double Exposure, chasing that Neon light and the creative exploration during his experimentations. Hope you like it!   Typography: Scripts with Depth   Scripts with Depth is a typography project shared by Katt Phatt and as the name suggests it is a set of beautiful 3D type with a super clever usage of depth. We are all used to seeing quotes and phrase with script lettering, it was quite trendy a couple of years ago. What Katt did was to play with the Z axis to create a super fresh effect. There's even some depth of field going on, check it out   UI Design: PayPal Concept Design   PayPal seems to be one service that a lot of designers use for UI design or concept redesigns. I quite like that because it's a finance application. It's in a way not towards social/user generated content where it's all about style or beauty. It's about money, balance, transfers and stuff like that. Filippos Protogeridis shared a good one on his Behance profile.The simple and super elegant UI design, it is more image heavy when necessary, like on the promo page and utilitarian when it needs to be. Overall I quite like this concept, much more than the official and current design.   NYC Illustrations   We are fans of the work of Romain Trystram on Abduzeedo, we always loved his Tron-stylesque illustrations where he uses a vibrant colour palette that seems always be happening at night time. What I do thought about his latest NYC Illustration series is that the colour palette has completely reversed from night to day and the lighting is just stunning. You can easily recognize some spots from the famous New York City and wildly felt like some illustrations are also been featured on the late Casey Neistat vlogs. Hope you will enjoy these!

There's just a lot to love about the original work done in 2015, and this project is a testament of the quality of the brand conceived - it scaled amazingly well to present a collection of amazed faces.   Programme - Portfolio Inspiration   Let’s take a look at the work from Ira Banana who is a designer specializing her work in UI/UX and graphic design based in Barcelona, Spain. The work around the grid is fairly clean and simple and what I do appreciate the most is the colours used into the branding. I totally dig that colourful gradient mix!   Business Card Inspiration   Let’s take a look at this sublime collection of business card designs by Anagrama Studio who is a brand development agency based in Mexico. Hope you will enjoy the variety and style of this lovely and inspiring collection.   3D Exotic Cars - CGI Renders   Let’s not pick a side, let’s rather enjoy the stunning CGI work from Onur Dursun who has been a CGI artist for more than 10 years currently based in Stuttgart, Germany. With that much experience to craft his skills, Onur has been rocking in art direction, retouching and of course automotive design.   Watch Dogs 2 - Art/Game Direction   I haven’t personally tried the game but it looks like a greater version from the first one who was revolutionary for many of us. We are featuring an interesting case study where Alexander Karpazis along with his team will take through their iterations for this new game. Hope you will enjoy!   Packaging Projects with Sweety & Co.   I would like to share the work from Sweety anc Co who is studio based in Porto Alegre, Brazil. They strongly focus their work in branding, packaging and it’s amazing! At first glance, you’ll notice the colour palette is quite vibrant with fluo colours of green, purple, pink and more. The second thing you will notice is the variety of branding work, they aren’t only focus in one specific style but many including funky illustration, CGI, pattern work and more. It’s quite a long feature compares what we usually publish but it’s totally worth the inspirational scroll! Please enjoy!

If you do have any suggestions, send us an email or via Twitter @AoiroStudio From the Web This iPad-like ‘Apple Mirror’ is all I want for Christmas via TheNextWeb  Created by designer Rafael Dymek, the ‘Apple Mirror’ is like an iPad on steroids. Although not made by Apple, it’s certainly Apple-inspired, down to the name — which Apple will almost certainly take issue with. Its iOS 10-inspired design features look-alike icons you might find on your iPhone, as well as the ability to text, browse the web, watch movies or even order an Uber. It’s fully touch capable and runs an operating system of unknown origin. 3 quick SEO fixes for every website via TheNextWeb  Do you want to start 2017 with better results in search engines?

Bill Kenney shared a bit of that on a Behance post. He talks about the challenges and how they overcame them. The work was done by Focus Lab where Bill is the co-owner and art-director.   MMB in Berlin: a 1844 building gets refurbished This breathtaking remodel is located in a very popular neighborhood in Berlin. Müllerhaus Metzerstrasse Berlin, a project by asdfg Architekten, is facelift in a house erected in 1844. Due to its historical elements and importance the authorities asked the architects to keep the facade look and feel. The result is totally inspiring. Both exterior and interiors are beautiful, but I'm astonished by the clean and modern look this place has. Take a look.   Baugasm Everyday Poster Series Let’s take a look at this poster series by Vasjen Katro entitled: Baugasm. Vasjen is a visual designer and creative director based in Tirana, Albania. This series is filled with vibrant colours, 3D, typography treatments, shapes and more. It is quite inspiring to follow his path, you should definitely follow him too.   ONNO Branding For the fans of minimalist design you will love ONNO, a branding and visual identity project from the Ena Baćanović - Ruby and the folks over at O N N O themselves. The design is a glorious black and white logo mixing two circles and the N. I love how balanced the logo is and also the composition for the collaterals. In addition to that, the web site has a simple and elegant design, with a classic use of serif fonts.   Many Faces of Shanghai We are taking a look at the work of Ekaterina Busygina and her series about Shanghai. We have featured her work before on Abduzeedo and we just love how she pays attention to the architecture, lighting, reflection and etc. We are great fans with subjects standing in front of a giant structure. Hope you will enjoy!   Rendered by Adobe - UI/UX  We have featured the work from Serge Vasil who is a Senior Designer and Art Director currently based in San Francisco, California. He recently got to work with Adobe on making a fictitious digital arts exhibition by using Adobe Photoshop and Dreamweaver on making the branding and website. I simply love the use of really colorful and vibrant gradients and one detail I even dig even more is the gradient use for the minimal mockup shapes. It’s really neat and hope you will enjoy it too.   Berlin Interiors - Architecture Photography Berlin Interiors is a photography project shared by Thibaud Poirier and by the title you have an idea what it is about. The only difference is that Thibaud captured some insanely beautiful photos of interiors in Berlin that look like 3D renders. I am a fan of photography and have been trying to capture photos of buildings and textures however I have to admit, I don't have the eye that these guys have. The compositions, textures and colors are beautiful. I won't tell you much more, just check out after the break.   Bad Neon - Poster Series Let’s take a closer look at the work of Tarek Okbir who is a graphic designer currently based Liège, Belgium. Other than focusing his work on UI/UX and Interface design, Tarek created his amazing poster series about very popular artists. As he called it the Music Edition, you can recognize artists such as Lana Del Rey, Alicia Keys and more. Hope you will like it!   Contemporary Architecture among Old Oaks in Carmel Valley Today we will show you a very elegant and contemporary home in Carmel Valley, California, a project by Sagan Piechota Architecture. The architects used materials such as concrete, weathered steel, and natural cedar to mirror the site's natural textures and color palettes. The result is inspiring. A lot of glass allowing natural light in the house and also showcasing the amazing surroundings. Take a look.

The project was shared on their Behance profile. The reason we share this project her on ABDZ is because of its simplicity. There's something beautiful about playing with black and white and also with dotted grids. I think by mixing that with some organic textures, the designers behind this project really achieved something powerful, especially for a nightclub.   NEXT Music Player App - UI/UX Let’s take a look at the work by Alan Lu and his project called NEXT. It’s a music player with playback controls, smart playlists, music sharing and more. What I do appreciate about this project is Alan took the time to implement the little details. As we all do know that is all about the details.   Zero - Branding and Web Design Zero is a Branding and Web Design project shared by Ben Mingo, the lead designer with collaboration of Linda Eliassen for Ueno . Zero is a mobile banking experience and it works alongside a physical card. The design follows a very simple and almost monochromatic style. There's also a interesting grid with some aligned with pristine typography.   Inside Uber San Francisco Headquarters  For example the Uber Black (the luxury car option) is represented by the black glass of that elevator lobby. It is also a vast space made up of many zones of comfort with communal areas and small enclaves for solo concentration. As we are know that Uber is known for being innovative, we are not surprised that the office will embody its quality as well. This office has been designed by O+A, a design studio based in San Francisco and New York City.   The CV Tabloid - Editorial Design It all depends but let’s just say that it’s helpful in some way. Let’s take a look at what Charlotte Allen did for her portfolio and we can’t help to appreciate how it does stand out and it’s worth the effort to be innovative and creative. What do you think?

The project was published quite a few months ago but I decided to feature it because more and more I see projects sharing the same visual language. The usage of vertical text, the presence of a grid but with the elements breaking a bit the uniformity of the composition are just a few things that make this design interesting. Of course there's the beautiful imagery. I don't know how well it works but the visual design of the static mocks look quite inspiring. This Week's Perfect Office   Redesign of comp   It’s because we are featuring a designer (Aron Fay) from Pentagram that redesigned the classic composition notebook. After some research, this new design is more than just a simple redesign, it is the launch of Comp challenges the premium brands like Moleskine and Baron Fig. Available today for pre-order on Kickstarter, Comp is coming for the long run. Give it a look and support their Kickstarter! Libraries of Berlin - Photography   Last month Abduzeedo was invited to be part of the launch of a new car company called LYNK & CO. The event took place in Berlin and our chief editor Francois Hoang traveled to Germany to cover the event. While in Berlin, Francois took the time to explore the city, and his passion of photography. He captured some incredible photos of two libraries there. You probably saw one of his photos as the Wallpaper of the Week, but we would love to share more with you. SickKids VS: Undeniable Campaign   On that note, we’ll love to share this strong and solid ad campaign for the Sick Kids Foundation. Take the time to watch that video, it’s a very powerful message to share. This campaign was made possible with the mightly folks from Cossette and to me it’s one of the best ad campaigns I’ve seen this year. Hope you will enjoy! In Love with Japan - Illustrations   We would like to feature the work from Johana Kroftová and her series entitled: In Love with Japan. She’s a junior Art Direction/Designer based in Prague, Czech Republic; recently coming back from a trip to Japan. She visited Japanese cities like: Okinawa, Tokyo and Nara; Johana has created a series of minimalistic illustrations after being inspired of the places she has been. Hope you will enjoy! Fran Silvestre Arquitectos - UI/UX   Let’s take a look at the stunning work from Milk Work who is a senior designer/art director living in the Bay of San Francisco, USA. He worked on an interaction design, UI/UX for Fran Silvestre Arquitectos site and it’s gorgeous. It’s a bold move to go with a graphic design/print mindset for the web, it must have been quite a challenge for the developers. But it is quite beautiful to look at and I must imagine that the interactions must have reflected the concept. Inside the NYC Squarespace HQ   Located in the is in the historic building formerly known as the Maltz Building, which was constructed in 1926. This new space honors Squarespace’s clean and minimalistic aesthetic. As I quote:”Now, decades later, we're now proudly carrying the torch with our goal of allowing more people to express their ideas freely on the web.”. Give it a look, it’s quite beautiful and can’t stop appreciating the atmosphere. Munich Underground System  Living in a city where there’s a big underground system, I’ve always been fascinated with everything around it. The neon lights, the tunnels and just the works. Also being getting more serious with my photography for its architecture, reflections and basically what was the idea/concept coming from the architect. I guess I’ll have to make time to travel the world and explore those underground systems. It’s a way of transportation and affordable even if you’re rich or poor which makes it even more interesting.

Emojo Engine via Product Hunt A search engine for emoji From Abduzeedo Android Prototyping for Designers - Shapes and Click Event Prototyping has become a very important part of the UI/UX design process. With mobile applications taking over the web it is imperative for designers to find ways to test their designs on the devices. In the beginning most designers, including myself, relied on HTML, CSS and Javascript to emulate the native experiences that the users would see. It worked quite well and still does, however it's not a very reliable approach if you really want to understand the constraints and complexities that a developer may face when translating your designs into the final product. With that in mind, I decided to focus my efforts on the Android Platform and Java to be able to create truly native prototypes. In addition, I wanted to deliver more than redlines but reusable assets that could reduce the churn and bug fixes because of differences in the jargon used by designer tools compared to the developers. A Movie Poster A Day It’s been quite some time we last heard or seen any interesting 365 days project on Abduzeedo. We might think that designers and artists might go for a simpler route to do lettering, typography, motion or else. Some designers decided to go on another route, right to the core at making posters. Movie Poster Series by Laura Racero We’ve been encountering a several designers having their take in movie posters. I mean who doesn’t love movies? We are still waiting in line for movies and eating popcorn! We are still embracing the movie experience at its best. With the amount of content we can find online about our favourite movies, with that much content it’s always great what you can stir up with a redesign and a concept. Especially when you just watched the movie and you’re feeling inspired to create. Moody London As I am trying to be a better photographer, the more I realized how hard it is to go on a path of taking only Black & White pictures. I mean you’re disclosing yourself from so many colours and maybe it is easy to give it a try. But to me, it’s quite a challenge! Luis Branco is a product and furniture designer from Viana do Castelo, Portugal. While checking Behance for some inspiration I ended up in his profile page and was amazed by his work, especially the consoles, sideboard and cabinets that share a beautiful and modern look. The Corbusier and Oslo are classic examples of this iconic modernist style. As a fan of product and industrial design, I had to share some of his work. I also started sketching some ideas for my sideboard project. Nothing more exciting than building a piece of furniture. Beautiful Motion Design for Auto UI Gleb Kuznetsov shared some quite beautiful motion design projects for Automotive UI. on his Dribbble page. They seem to be for the new Fantasy Auto Lab project done by the amazing people over at Fantasy, a Human-centered UI & UX studio based in New York and Silicon Valley. One of the reasons I thought it would be cool to share this projects is because it has a Tron look, quite different from what we have been seeing since flat design, if that is even a style, became popular. There's much more to love than just the style. The animations and details are top notch and make me want to see the full project. The UI/UX Work of Claudio Guglieri While browsing on Dribbble, I discovered the work of Claudio Guglieri and I was just so impressed by his work related to brands, experiences and UI/UX. He has worked hands-on for brands like Adobe, CNN, Reuters, Kayak, Google and just to name a few. Claudio is the design director at Microsoft Groove and Movies & TV and he’s currently based in Redmond, Seattle. Halloween Logotypes That’s why I love this initiative from Logobaker to assemble designers/artists all over Europe to create a series of logotypes on the theme of Halloween. Spooky, cheesy, predictable, we can’t help to enjoy the different types of style that would apply to these logo designs. We took the liberty to feature all of them instead of a few, hope you will enjoy!

I just came back from a trip from Iceland and I took all this gear with me in the wilderness where I got to really experience and make a proper review instead of my own boring city backyard. Let’s start! STARDECK - Ultimate Deck of Cards STARDECK is a custom deck of poker-sized playing cards, the design and illustrations were done by Lunar Saloon, and printed by The United States Playing Card Company. The project was launched on Kickstarter and is waiting for our support. The people behind Lunar Saloon are my good friend Alex Griendling and his wife Meg Griendling. As we could expect the illustrations are beyond stylish and in addition to that there is a beautiful Kickstarter-exclusive wooden etching where they worked with Neutral Ground to produce. Keap the fire burning: Keap Candles Launches New Website and 'Scent-to-Home' Experience I happen to have an unhealthy obsession with candles that smell amazing so when we received a delivery from Keap Candles out of Brooklyn, NY my day was made. Upon opening the beautifully packaged discovery set of four tea light candles my olfactory senses were in heaven. Keap Candles smell amazing, are aesthetically awesome and you can also feel good about burning them because you're doing good too. Uber Visual Identity Redesign Uber refreshed their branding and visual identity in the beginning of this year and despite the controversy it was a in my opinion a solid work. I know some of the designers behind it and I have profound admiration for the work that they do, they are experts at their craft and probably some of the best in this field. The project that they shared on Bechance definitely illustrates that quite well. It's a text book project and if you want to create visual style guide, save the link because it's hard getting any better than that. LYNK & CO - Share Mode UI/UX What I particularly like about LYNK & CO philosophy, approach and business model are the fact that is more than just a car. There’s a definitive mindset behind this brand to be wide open as an open source to creation and collaboration. Some of us might think that CO from LYNK & CO would mean company but it actually means Co:operation, Co:mmunity and Co:nnection. We gotta that play of words! LYNK & CO - Introducing Model 01 As you may have seen from our social channels, we have been covering the launch of the new car company called: LYNK & CO (via our Instagram) in Berlin, Germany. It has been an exciting ride as that is our first international unveiling for Abduzeedo. As expected, we are now releasing the first official images for what it would be called the LYNK & CO Model 01.

It’s quite lovely to follow along, definitely give it a watch. For today’s feature, Bram is sharing his process on making new digital art, hope you will enjoy! CHI Development Center- UI/UX CHI is a UI/UX project for a Ukraine, development center located in Kharkiv. The project was shared by Sergey Filonenko and we can highlight a few reasons that it deserved the feature. First the nice grid system and typography. Second and most important for me, the abundant white space. They say that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication and, in my opinion, Sergey achieved that quite well. Of course there is a lot of questions on how a design like that would work in different screen sizes and mediums, however for the inspiration sake, I will keep that project on my list of simple, yet elegant UI/UX solutions Lettering Works by Joe Sutton We would like to feature the work of Joe Sutton who is a freelance graphic designer based in London, UK. He focus his work into typography, lettering and branding design. What I particularly like about Joe’s work is that he takes the time to share his process and well-written details about what can be improved from his sketches. Vinery 9 Branding Vinery 9 is a branding and visual identity project for an e-commerce website all about wine and it was designed by a fellow Brazilian Designer, Gilnei Silva. There are many ways to translate a message to a logo and then a branding system. Gilnei explored the refraction effect created when you try to read something through a glass of wine. The result is quite beautiful. The visual representation of the distortion with wavy lines is clever and elegant. I won't tell much, check it out after the break and happy Friday.

Of course there's always space for beautiful artwork like the Skull Candy project shared by Lorett Foth. It was a project done in Photoshop, 3ds Max and Zbrush. The quality of the composition and details make us believe that the scene was real, especially the lighting. Trópico Branding Branding goes beyond the logo, we mentioned that several times. The biggest challenge for designers is how to create a system that is scalable and efficient across different mediums. Carlos Bauer and Nicholas Pierre shared a great example on their Behance page. It's the visual identity for Tropico, a great example of beautiful word mark and collaterals. The Landmarks IllustrationsWe are taking a close look at the work from Al Power and his illustrative series about various landmarks in Europe. Going through these, you can quickly recognize the Eiffel Tower, London Clock Tower and so on. Beautiful Houses: Hadar's HouseToday we will show you a small and exquisite home on coast of Stokkøya, Norway, a project by Asante Architecture & Design. The house is located right next to the water overlooking the neighboring islands and the Norwegian Sea. The place was designed for a chef and is pure inspiration. Beautiful material combination and a simple layout deliver a great space. Huge windows, lots of natural light and breathtaking views give this place an extra charm. Take a look! Wallpaper of the Week: Icelandic MountainFor this week’s wallpaper, we are sharing this image by me on my recent trip to Iceland. I can talk for hours how much I loved exploring the wilderness of this country and how stunning are the different icelandic landscapes. This wallpaper is only available on mobile for the primary reason that the shot was took vertically. There will be more coming and in Desktop versions as well, by the meantime please enjoy and follow me on Instagram.

Uttam via Product Hunt A perfectly crafted wallpaper for your Android, every day OneThing via Product Hunt An SMS chatbot to help you set and complete daily goals W Chair via Product Hunt Play (for Medium) via Product Hunt Listen to Medium articles with a Chrome Extension From Abduzeedo Nubank Branding and Visual Identity Personally I love the symbol and the color palette, it's elegant and depth. It's like a penrose triangle. The typeface is the only thing I am not quite fan of, it looks like FF Dax which seems to be one of the favorite fonts for visual identities in Brazil. That said, it doesn't compromise the strong work done by Andrea and the other designers involved. Packaging Design: Vodka-dot I am a fan of packaging design, especially the design of bottles of wine and vodka. The work done for Absolut has been part of my design education, I remember their books only about the different variations of bottle label design and ads. When I saw the Voka-dota work shared by Den Dodson it really caught my attention. I love new ways of trying things and boy Den found one. The simple design with red bottle with white dots give this friendly almost childish look, quite inspiring. Figma UI Tool with Real-Time Collaboration for Designers It's amazing to see that today there are plenty of interface design tools for designers. In the past we were limited to Adobe, my favorite tool used to be Fireworks. Thanks to them, when they killed it a lot of people saw the opportunity to build not only a tool to replace it but a much better tool. Figma is a great example. The idea is to be the Google Docs for designers. It's a vector tool that runs in the browser and allows for incredible collaboration. I've been playing with it at home and I am quite impressed about how powerful it is. Beautiful Houses: Avalon Today we will show you the inspiring Avalon house in New South Wales, Australia a project by ArchiBlox. This is a great prefab structure that was constructed in 6 weeks. And the modular design minimizes impact in the environment. The place has a few green features and is cozy and charming. In love with the kitchen and bathroom. Take a look!
