Continuing my series of posts trying to illustrate the state of web design. For this post I highlight more designs that adopt what it seems to be a new trend. As I mentioned before, this new style feels super editorial. It has a clear grid system and, based on the static designs, makes good usage of the scroll. Vertical height and space is quite generous, which in my opinion, is great.
I am a couple hours away to leave for Sweden, by the meantime I wanted to discover some designers from this beautiful country in the eastern part of the Scandinavian Peninsula. We are taking a look at the work from Dalston Creative, a design studio located in Stockholm.
Our friends over at SAVEE sent us a cool set of images to share with you. It's the weekend and it's time to relax and enjoy some design inspiration so sit down, relax and check out some beautiful examples of branding, graphic design, photography, digital art, web design and much more.
I'm an admitted pen-aholic. There, I said it. I'm not shy to admit I would look forward to Sunday's as a child when my dad carted me down to his office and I could rummage through the pen drawer to find my new favorite. I'm also truly obsessed with handwritten notes and I'm on a one-woman mission to ensure this beautiful art is not lost in the digital age in which we now exist.
There is always this excitement to discover new places especially through the medium of photography. In my case, it's a combination of architecture and the thrill of finding the right perspective. That being said, we are taking a look at the stunning work of Calle Artmark who is a Photographer/Retoucher based in Stockholm, Sweden.
Horizon Chase is one of those games that brings back a lot of good memories, especially if you are from the generation that played the classic Sega Outrun or Nintendo's Top Gear. Outrun is the best reference because of the Ferrari. Another amazing thing about this game and game design is that I know the folks behind it, they are from my hometown, which makes me even happier.
We are not shy to admit how much we love Beeple's work on ABDZ. We just can't help to appreciate his insane creativity and perseverance at making new work every single day for as long as we can remember. This might be his 4th or 5th feature on ABDZ and we won't be stopping there.
It never ceases to amaze me the level of quality that 3D artworks have gotten. Dan N shared this incredible character design project that took him a few months to complete. It is titled "Hulkbuster" and it's the Iron Man Armor: Mark XLIV.
Altered Carbon is a new sci-fi TV series from Netflix. I haven't had the chance to watch any episode yet, however I've seen a lot of hype about it, in a good way. People I follow on Twitter have praised the show so it's on my watchlist. For this post I wanted to share a motion design post featuring the main titles of the show. It is simply beautiful, full of 3D and light effects.
I am a fan of simplicity in design. Nothing beats the black and white when it comes to brand identity. I feel that if you can make something work well in black and white it can work with any color, or just no color at all. Just keep it as it is. For this post I'd love to share the brand identity of estúdio arco.

We are delighted to share a timely post today by Hungarian-based illustrator Dora Vincze showcasing some fun illustrations celebrating winter sports. Just in time for the Olympics in South Korea, these whimsical, animated character illustrations have us beaming from ear to ear.
Billelis ... shared another amazing post on his Behance profile. This time it's an digital art and illustration work he has done for the upcoming Marvel movie, Black Panther. As expected, it's an incredibly detailed artwork with intricate forms and shapes.
The cool thing about following websites like Dribbble and Behance, especially Dribbble, is that you can see the direction the visual design community is going. For the past 10 years we have seen photo-realistic icons being the main theme, then it evolved to lettering, vector illustration and for the past couple of years the site has definitely focused on UI/UX.
Let's kick it off with a stunning series by a freelance Cinematographer & Photographer based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Running with the name of Stijn Hoekstra, we are following his photographic journey in Cuba. His pictures are simply marvelous.
If you're looking for an instant mood enhancer halt now and enjoy the beautiful work of Felix Renaud for Canadian charitable organization Les Petits Freres. Renaud was tapped to shoot a calendar for this most heartwarming charity that seeks to provide companionship for elders by providing a caring, committed extended family around them dedicated to alleviating their isolation.
Linn Fritz shared a super cool motion design project she did in collaboration with CNN for their new Parallels series about Alcohol. The illustrations are simple, yet very stylish, add some clever and subtle motion work and you have the recipe for an inspiring project.
We love the work of Brian Miller on ABDZ. He is an illustrator based in Erie, Colorado, USA; living in a beautiful landscape as a background like Colorado. It must have been really inspiring!
It's no secret we're big fans of the work coming from Kati Forner Design having showcased some past work of hers here on Abduzeedo. Of late we're swooning over the most recent work for Kombucha brand Muse + Mettā founded by Trent Brokie .
Web design is getting more stylish every day. The editorial look with nice grid system has become a reality. Still we run into some issues of having to design a fluid system to be fully responsive. That ends up with 2, 3 or more different designs for the same project.
Joshua M. Smith never fails to impress and inspires us. We have featured him several times here on Abduzeedo and when I was browsing Behace this morning I saw this beautiful illustrations for the Black Panther movie. They have the look and feel of Joshua's work, also known as Hydro74.
