Interaction Design & UI/UX: Sherpahire.com

An interesting project to share that involves interaction & UI/UX for Sherpahire.com. What is a sherpa? I honestly had to look it up and discover that web design was done specifically for a target audience and for this case as elite mountaineers and experts in their local area. It's an interesting approach since the focal point of the design is all about the search surrounded by a gallery of beautiful imagery. Since the images are part of what's called the center piece, everything else from the typography and micro-interactions are only played as an extra role. Published on Behance is the collaborative work from Alexander Laguta, Kate Laguta, Alexander Aubakirov, Alexei Rezvanov and Andrey Petrunin. All together sharing their expertise in Art Direction to Motion Design. Props to everyone involved. Sherpahire is the unique service allowing travelers to find sherpas and orginize their trekking vacation. We were asked to create a simple and eye-catchy interface allowing to find a sherpa, meet like-minded travelers and get inspired about Nepal as a trekking destination. We have used simple geometrical forms to create general style for Sherpahire brand and easy to follow interface allowing visitor to solve his goal and meet Nepal at a glance. Enjoy!

Interaction Design & UI/UX: Kickstagram, an Instagram Marketing Tool

Let's take a look at this interaction design & UI/UX project from the folks over Bachoo Design Studio. Their project is called: Kickstagram, an Instagram Marketing Tool. We've seen many Instagram tools out there but a lot of them lack features that will actually make us use it even more. If you remove the UI aspect from Kickstagram that is simple and clean. I liked the features that complement the application as well like Drafting & Posting and especially the Drag & Drop Scheduling is a neat idea.

Interaction Design & Art Direction: The Refugee Nation

Interaction Design & Art Direction: The Refugee Nation

An Interaction Design and Art Direction for Refugee Nation by Justin Au. I don't know if you guys remember at the last Olympics, we've witnessed a team of refugee athletes compete in the games. A first in the history and since they had no official "home" to call their own, no anthem and no flag.

Currently based in Brooklyn, you should definitely follow his Behance where you'll find work for IBM, 36 days of type and more. Video Bringing the world together to support Refugees. For the first time in Olympics history, the games saw a team of refugee athletes compete in the games. But unlike other competitors supported by their nation countries, these champions had no official "home" to call their own, and thus, no anthem and no flag. The flag of the "Refugee Nation," created by Syrian refugee Yara Said, was orange and black, to represent the life vests the athletes wore as they set off in boats for a better life. Another Syrian refugee, composer Moutaz Arian, created a wordless anthem to convey a universal message of love and hope. The Refugee Flag has since become an international symbol of welcome and inclusion. It is hoisted all over the world by different people, organizations, and even countries as a sign of solidarity in support of refugees. I was tasked with designing a web experience that captured and explained the idea behind the flag and all that it stands, to visitors from all over the world who may have stumbled upon its colors.   Links Follow Justin Au on Behance

Interaction Design & UI/UX: Transit Tracker Concept

Interaction Design & UI/UX: Transit Tracker Concept

Let's take a look at this interesting interaction design concept of a transit tracker by Matteo Mapelli. As I am starting to see a trend with designers using the font: Montserrat; it's a great readable font especially on apps.
