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.

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!

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.

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!

An audition section allowed users a small taste into the musical style of each character and upon diving in further, users could explore the personality behind the performer. We integrated a variety of shareable content as well as character-specific Spotify playlists to make each character’s persona shine.
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. We are well aware that a comprehensive redesign would be based on a host of different factors: business objectives, user needs defined as a result of data analysis, and so on. We were not aiming at a total overhaul of Trello – we focused exclusively on Trello's visual experience, bearing in mind all the limitations of such approach. The project was created by Anna Klawikowska, Michal Parulski and Serge Soskowiec. They are designers from Poland and part of the Netguru Team. Their work range from graphic design, typography and UI Design. I highly recommend you to check out their Behance profiles for the complete portfolio. There's really inspiring work. UI Design A Trello board is a list of lists, filled with cards, used by you and your team. It’s a lot more than that, though. Trello has everything you need to organize projects of any size. It works in real-time. When somebody moves a card, it moves on your board instantly, no matter what device you use. You can keep your tab open all day and never have to refresh. Plus, Trello opens and loads so fast you won’t even notice. - via Trello.com
This Weekend, I was able to enjoy a free admission at the MBAM (Musée des Beaux Arts de Montréal) and go through its art exhibits filled with beautiful pieces. During my walk, I thought about my own experience and how we can enhance it especially knowing with the possibilities of technology nowadays. We are featuring a project with Ekrem Ates and Muzaffer Akay and their inMuseum App. What I adore the most about this project is not the UI but the part where they show the phase beyond the structure of the experience. I also liked their approach of making the UI based on cards for responsiveness, also with usability and mobile gestures. Published on Behance by Ekrem Ates and Muzaffer Akay who are designers based in Istanbul, Turkey. Superb work about what they have done on making inMuseum app where you can facilitate your own experience and mostly at your own pace. Credits Ekrem Ates Muzaffer Akay
We would like to share this interesting project of an app called: Fangry Food, it is a cooking app with the geniality of telling the app what’s in your fridge so they can come up with a range of recipes depending on the difficulty, popularity, calories and etc. It’s quite a great idea actually and I do feel that the interaction design behind the app is intuitive and easy-to-follow. I have some questions raising up while scanning this project like how mostly the backend can respond to all the variety of elements of food that exist for example or how does it come up with different cooking steps depending on your ingredients. I loved the detail of having the button: Order Pizza, that was hilarious. Artkai Design Studio is a studio based in Kyiv, Ukraine.
