We're obsessed with trains around this house so when we stumbled upon this latest series of photographs capturing life in a far off Japanese land during the depths of winter we just had to share. There is a limited express train service named “Okhotsk-no-Kaze (Wind of Okhotsk)” in Japan operated by the Hokkaido Railway Company that runs across the Hokkaido Prefecture.
We are about less than 3 weeks before the end of the year, we decided to make our year in review for you guys. We feel now would be the best time before we turn our computers off for the holidays! Let us introduce our picks for Abduzeedo's Best of 2017! This year, we have seen a rise of UI/UX but you guys are still into projects related to illustration, 3D, CGI, graphic design and more.
I am a huge fan of watching foreign movies and TV shows on Netflix, I really enjoy learning about other cultures especially seeing how people live their day-to-day in other countries. I think that is the beauty of traveling! What brings me to today's subject by taking us to South Korea and its architecture (P.S. I would definitely love to travel there!).
We are about less than 3 weeks before the end of the year, we decided to make our year in review for you guys (Part II comes out tomorrow). We feel now would be the best time before we turn our computers off for the holidays! Let us introduce our picks for Abduzeedo's Best of 2017!
Andriy Bata shared an awesome web design project for the upcoming Marvel movie Black Panther. There are so many cool things about this project but I couldn't say if it was a concept or a real project. Nevertheless there are great examples of the future of web design with very editorial look.
Just about two weeks before Christmas time, I don't know why but this is my favourite part of the year. It's usually the time where you get yourself loose for delicious foods, cherish the love with siblings and desperately getting some time off everything. Time for a reset!
We are very close to the end of the year and the mighty team from InVision are still sharing a preview of what is coming for 2018. The new year could be easily one of their biggest years to date, we are quite excited for them. We can't wait to get our hands on their latest so we can share our feedback with you guys.
It's that time of the week for our collection of UI/UX interactions to boost your UI inspiration. We are focusing on cool animations, layout designs, UX thinking and more. We will mix it all from static, dynamic and even live prototypes, this might be a great article to bookmark!
We're just smitten with the work by lg2 for Taverne Louise in Quebec City. lg2 is Canada's largest independent creative agency specializing in innovation, strategy, packaging, branding and design just to name a few areas of their expertise.
James Gilleard shared a set of beautiful illustrations that he created in 2017. They are all vector illustration and it definitely sets the bar at another level.
Just to keep the celebration for the upcoming movie release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. As a follow-up from my previous article, I decided to put together a fun list of cool gadgets for any Star Wars fans. This has been a lot of fun to put together as a Star Wars fan myself.
I am a fan of the 80s, I believe everybody must know by now but it's always good to remind you all about that. It explains why I will always post anything that reminds me of that decade, especially typography. That is the case of The Sonnyfive typeface created and shared by Sándor Szalay on his Behance profile.
It's been a long time since our last giveaway on Abduzeedo, it's quite exciting because we have one for you today. We are giving away to one lucky winner, the everyday messenger bag by Peak Design. We would love to give a huge shoutout to our friends from Peak Design for being so awesome!
book · Books · book suggestion · gift guide
We hoped that you have been enjoying our gift guides from the past week, let's keep the holiday spirit alive with another guide. But this time, we will stay away from the tech stuff and focus on books! With the holidays knocking at the door, it will be a great moment to enjoy a nice book next to a fireplace?
Elicia Edijanto is an artist from Jakarta, Indonesia with some incredible work shared on her Behance profile. I love simple, black and white illustration and what Elicia's done here with drawings is exactly what I love. The subject and style of composition makes you think or imagining yourself in that situation.
swatches · pantone · color palette · apps
We're happy to share the news of a colorful new app launch today on Abduzeedo called Swatches, a color picker for the real world. Have you ever tried to start a painting project and gotten stuck at that critical moment where you actually have to commit to a paint color? Picking paint colors is hard.
web design · UI/UX · redesign · Concepts
You guys are fully aware of how I feel about redesigns right? But with the end of the year coming soon, I decided to take a stab at a new perspective. Knowingly that most designers who are working on redesign concepts should know (or know) there are SO MANY details we need to take in consideration. It's mostly not about the UI.
We are sharing the work of Kateryna Zuieva who is from AKZ Architectura based in Ukraine. We are showcasing her architecture & interior design project for Blushhh! Secret Shop located in Kiev. I simply love the whole theme going on into this shop with first of all the neon lights and the minimum use of two colours for the whole store colour palette.
There's something about brand identity projects that have a dark theme. I know that it might be personal preference but black business cards or stationary definitely adds an elegant/upscale look. The Loupedeck work done by BOND Creative Agency is a great example of that.
Since our weekly curated UI/UX interactions series are going well, we decided to give it a try with illustrations. Instead of focusing on one specific medium for illustrations like a print design for example. We will surf and look for great pieces across more platforms from books, print, web, applications and more.
It's the weekly moment for our collection of UI/UX interactions to boost your UI inspiration. We will focus on cool animations, layout designs, UX thinking and more. We will mix it all from static, dynamic and even live prototypes, this might be a great article to bookmark!
Currently living in the North side of America, the month of December generally comes with what we truly love and also hate the same time. Snow! Again, there is still a beauty in watching a snowfall in the city and even outside of all its glory.
