I guess weather apps are part of what we would qualify part of our daily routine, personally I related myself to Google Apps. But they are a numerous amount of applications out there that shares a "fun" factor to the mix. We are taking a look at the RealWeather app from Poland-based designer Michał Sambora. Adding a semi-realistic 3D renders to the minimal UI, this app concept definitely gives the prime to the 3D merging together with a dark UI all across. Michał Sambora is a mobile UI/UX designer based in Krakow, Poland. We have featured his motion work before on ABDZ. Make sure to follow his work and experiments on Dribbble. Fresh concept I had back in January for very simple and clean weather app with realistic 3D weather conditions.. Doesn't matter if there is plenty of such already, had to try to make those lovely clouds and animate them in Houdini and C4D + Octane myself :D Credits to Josef Bsharah (http://www.josefbsharah.net) for inspiration and helping making it happen!

I used to be a great fan (and still) of pitch concepts, it's such a great exercise to do with your team or even with yourself. The goal is to attract a client for project by getting out of your comfort zone with an idea and going through the whole design process. I love it because you get to experiment ideas or even try concepts that you wish you could have done on another project. We are taking a closer look at the work from Rolf Jensen for a pitch he had to work on for Lionsgate (in collaboration with Real Pie Media), I love how the background colour is part of the UI where buttons aren't adding an additional foreground colour. It almost feels like an app but through a web experience. Check it out! Rolf Jensen is a freelance interactive director based in Lower East Side, New York. We have featured his work before on ABDZ, please check him out on Behance. These visuals are pulled from a design pitch I created for Lionsgate and Real Pie Media in LA a while back, yet this is some of the most recent work that I was able to show publicly this year, but more to be shared soon.

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. Cool mobile app with direct access to dining and clubbing locations in your city Project Gallery Credits Designed by Heartbeat Agency UX, Business Strategy and Development: MindStudios More Links Learn more MindStudios at themindstudios.com Follow MindStudios on Behance
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. The user flow, the wireframes, and the actual UI are all part of it all. Let's take a look at this mobile application of an app called Pay & Go. Designed by the folks at Meat Agency, their goals were to basically change your payment behaviours. Meat Agency is a studio that specialized in product design where they have worked with startups and brands on researches, prototyping, copywriting, branding, visual design for web/interfaces and all kinds of development.

After setup the profile, you can a series of recipes and also given the difficulty of cooking where you can get suggestions as well.

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. You should definitely see their motto through their work and it's about good design thinking that can answer almost any question and solve most problems. Even though many of us have declared email dead, it's up to all of us to breathe new life into it. Let's face it: you're not going to stop using email, so, instead, why not work on the relationship?
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. Check it out! Behind this concept, we are sharing the work from Ha Truong who is a designer based in Hanoi, Vietnam. He is shifting his work lately into interaction design, you get to experience his thinking through his concepts and ideas that are pretty great. Definitely worth following on Behance.

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. Focusing her work into UI/UX, web design and graphic design; it's great to see Catherine keeping it busy with mobile app concepts where everything is well detailed.
