It's a set of exploration and experiments that will cover all aspects of interactions from web design and app design as well.

We have featured Side B projects in the past here on Abduzeedo. We like to diversify but they really got me by creating an beautiful UI Design concept project for Nike SB. If you didn't know, I am a huge skateboarding fan. I used to skateboard when I was younger, I still do from time to time. For some reason I stopped but I keep up with the sport by following skaters as well as watching the Street League. If there's one thing that got me into design was skateboarding. The culture, the style and the focus on creativity are very important for a skateboarder in a very similar way it's for designers. Anyway, enough of me talking, check out this super stylish UI design for Nike SB. UI Design Concept
Hope everyone have enjoyed a long Weekend with Labour Day. Time to be back and let's start if off with an interaction design and UI/UX of a web and mobile app called Unight. It's a mobile app to help you guide through your city regarding dining and especially nightclubs. For this concept to be fully functional, I would imagine that these locations must be active on the platform. Adding the QR code integration is neat but I wonder if it's still on nowadays. I might be wrong, anyways check it out! Collaboration work between Heartbeat Agency and MindStudios who is web and mobile design studio based in Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine. You should definitely follow their Behance for upcoming projects related to interaction design.

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!

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. Bachoo Design Studio is a design team located in Kyiv, Ukraine. They would mainly work into web design, graphic design, UI/UX and more. You should definitely follow their work on Behance.

I am not a true believer of fancy mockups when reviewing a UI/UX project, what's more, interesting is the process behind its concept.

Designed by the folks at Meat Agency, their goals were to basically change your payment behaviours.

Let's take a look at this interaction design & UI/UX for a MacOs app named Mailcube, behind the app we have the team over Significa that believed that the email is not dead and it's all about how you treat this relationship. Right off the bat, you are introduce to what they called: faces where you can customize as you pleased through faces (categories) like messages, contacts, attachments and more. What I liked the most is the fact that your notifications are filtered and you can organize your emails by dragging a cube (kind of like creating a channel on Slack). You can join their private beta here. Behind this design, we have the work from Significa, a creative studio based in Porto, Portugal. Currently focusing their work into interaction design and brand development.

Let's share our first interaction design project this week of a cooking app concept named: Ecook. Designed by Ha Truong, we are approached with an app that can help you cook more through daily menus and suggestions depending on the weather or whatnot. What's cool about this concept is the integration of watching what famous chefs are sharing as recipes, on the other hand I really liked this user flow from the shopping list to the actual cooking.

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. What I really enjoy about this concept is the main (bottom) navigation, that subtle-overlayed gradient and wrapped with the menu button is quite neat. What raises a question is the use of the map when you've actually found your destination and also the use of the other features from the navigation. Overall, it's pretty great! Published via Behance is the work from Matteo Mapelli who is a digital art director based in Milan, Italy. Focusing his work into UI/UX, web design and art direction, you should definitely follow Matteo on Instagram.
We are looking at the interaction design of a personal fitness coach mobile app named: FitMe. Designed by Catherine Wang, what's totally selling me to her concept is for starters the colour palette that is keeping people motivated with a sparking red as the main colour. You'll notice the UI has a tiny resemblance to the Apple Watch UI, it express a nice flair for the least. I also liked the profile aspect of her concept that showcases your progress and achievements. Check it out! Published via Behance is the work from Catherine Wang who is a web designer working at Apple.

We are taking a look at this interaction design of an app named: Smart Expense. Designed by Prakhar Neel Sharma, it’s a colourful approach on how you should manage your daily expenses with cute illustrations and graphics to be more familiarize with your finance. I personally liked the “explore” section since it’s giving you a little bit more options within the app. It’s an overall beautiful work but I can’t help to spot the many spelling errors, be careful with that Prakhar! Published on Behance, this is the work of Prakhar Neel Sharma who is a product designer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Focusing his work into digital interfaces, everything is all related to the user. His principles are beauty, simplicity and usability.
We would like to feature this interaction design project by Watson DG for the Moonlight Movie. Recently the movie has won many prestigious awards at the Oscars (2017) and especially for the Best Picture. Asides from the reveal controversy, the kind folks over Watson DG created the site that drew many of our attention to its success. From the visual, the site offers a simple and clean experience.

There isn't much more information about him but I do enjoy his creative thinking and would love to see more of him in the future.

Carried on with many titles, it’s great to see the comeback of this phone especially with our modern standard.

Better readability, reduction design pattern, larger typography and a neat user interface.
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!
