We all had a long week of work, school and maybe vacation (some of us) and after spending some time relaxing with family, friends; we'll mostly spend be ready to tackle a new week. Before you do, it's time for the Weekly Roundup where we curated our some of the interesting things that happened on the Web either it is news, a new tool to try, a cool video and some sites inspiration that caught on attention. We'll also include some Abduzeedo articles from the past week just in case that you've missed them. Time to sit back, see what you've missed and gear up for the next one.

From Abduzeedo Photography: Colour Game   Colour Game is a photography project shared by Jovana Rikalo on her Behance profile. As the name suggest the use of color and the contrast of the bright yellow and the cold cyan create a beautiful backdrop for the main subject, a redhead woman. In addition there's a surreal feeling because of the air balloon. It's hard to describe this beautiful work in words, take a look and let me know what you think.   Double Exposure Neon Life Series   Nowadays, we all the tools that is available for our efforts to make more. We have a great variety of things we can do and even more you can create without even touching your computer or laptop. That’s even more impressive and crazy to know how the technology has evolved in so little time. Let’s not put a break and just embrace it all. We are taking a look at this photo series by Louis Dazy and I just love this series for many thing including the Double Exposure, chasing that Neon light and the creative exploration during his experimentations. Hope you like it!   Typography: Scripts with Depth   Scripts with Depth is a typography project shared by Katt Phatt and as the name suggests it is a set of beautiful 3D type with a super clever usage of depth. We are all used to seeing quotes and phrase with script lettering, it was quite trendy a couple of years ago. What Katt did was to play with the Z axis to create a super fresh effect. There's even some depth of field going on, check it out   UI Design: PayPal Concept Design   PayPal seems to be one service that a lot of designers use for UI design or concept redesigns. I quite like that because it's a finance application. It's in a way not towards social/user generated content where it's all about style or beauty. It's about money, balance, transfers and stuff like that. Filippos Protogeridis shared a good one on his Behance profile.The simple and super elegant UI design, it is more image heavy when necessary, like on the promo page and utilitarian when it needs to be. Overall I quite like this concept, much more than the official and current design.   NYC Illustrations   We are fans of the work of Romain Trystram on Abduzeedo, we always loved his Tron-stylesque illustrations where he uses a vibrant colour palette that seems always be happening at night time. What I do thought about his latest NYC Illustration series is that the colour palette has completely reversed from night to day and the lighting is just stunning. You can easily recognize some spots from the famous New York City and wildly felt like some illustrations are also been featured on the late Casey Neistat vlogs. Hope you will enjoy these!

From Abduzeedo Opéra Saint-Étienne 2016 - Brand Design   Opéra Saint-Étienne 2016 is a brand design project created and shared by Graphéine. There's just a lot to love about the original work done in 2015, and this project is a testament of the quality of the brand conceived - it scaled amazingly well to present a collection of amazed faces.   Programme - Portfolio Inspiration   Let’s take a look at the work from Ira Banana who is a designer specializing her work in UI/UX and graphic design based in Barcelona, Spain. The work around the grid is fairly clean and simple and what I do appreciate the most is the colours used into the branding. I totally dig that colourful gradient mix!   Business Card Inspiration   Let’s take a look at this sublime collection of business card designs by Anagrama Studio who is a brand development agency based in Mexico. Hope you will enjoy the variety and style of this lovely and inspiring collection.   3D Exotic Cars - CGI Renders   Let’s not pick a side, let’s rather enjoy the stunning CGI work from Onur Dursun who has been a CGI artist for more than 10 years currently based in Stuttgart, Germany. With that much experience to craft his skills, Onur has been rocking in art direction, retouching and of course automotive design.   Watch Dogs 2 - Art/Game Direction   I haven’t personally tried the game but it looks like a greater version from the first one who was revolutionary for many of us. We are featuring an interesting case study where Alexander Karpazis along with his team will take through their iterations for this new game. Hope you will enjoy!   Packaging Projects with Sweety & Co.   I would like to share the work from Sweety anc Co who is studio based in Porto Alegre, Brazil. They strongly focus their work in branding, packaging and it’s amazing! At first glance, you’ll notice the colour palette is quite vibrant with fluo colours of green, purple, pink and more. The second thing you will notice is the variety of branding work, they aren’t only focus in one specific style but many including funky illustration, CGI, pattern work and more. It’s quite a long feature compares what we usually publish but it’s totally worth the inspirational scroll! Please enjoy!

Weekly Roundup: Apple Mirror, "Predict your Future" tool and more

We all had a long week of work, school and maybe vacation (some of us) and after spending some time relaxing with family, friends; we'll mostly spend be ready to tackle a new week. Before you do, it's time for the Weekly Roundup where we curated our some of the interesting things that happened on the Web either it is news, a new tool to try, a cool video and some sites inspiration that caught on attention.

If you do have any suggestions, send us an email or via Twitter @AoiroStudio From the Web This iPad-like ‘Apple Mirror’ is all I want for Christmas via TheNextWeb  Created by designer Rafael Dymek, the ‘Apple Mirror’ is like an iPad on steroids. Although not made by Apple, it’s certainly Apple-inspired, down to the name — which Apple will almost certainly take issue with. Its iOS 10-inspired design features look-alike icons you might find on your iPhone, as well as the ability to text, browse the web, watch movies or even order an Uber. It’s fully touch capable and runs an operating system of unknown origin. 3 quick SEO fixes for every website via TheNextWeb  Do you want to start 2017 with better results in search engines?

If either or both answers are yes, then you will want to run through this list of quick SEO fixes every website needs to make now in order to be prepared for changes to the SEO world to come.

Bill Kenney shared a bit of that on a Behance post. He talks about the challenges and how they overcame them. The work was done by Focus Lab where Bill is the co-owner and art-director.   MMB in Berlin: a 1844 building gets refurbished This breathtaking remodel is located in a very popular neighborhood in Berlin. Müllerhaus Metzerstrasse Berlin, a project by asdfg Architekten, is facelift in a house erected in 1844. Due to its historical elements and importance the authorities asked the architects to keep the facade look and feel. The result is totally inspiring. Both exterior and interiors are beautiful, but I'm astonished by the clean and modern look this place has. Take a look.   Baugasm Everyday Poster Series Let’s take a look at this poster series by Vasjen Katro entitled: Baugasm. Vasjen is a visual designer and creative director based in Tirana, Albania. This series is filled with vibrant colours, 3D, typography treatments, shapes and more. It is quite inspiring to follow his path, you should definitely follow him too.   ONNO Branding For the fans of minimalist design you will love ONNO, a branding and visual identity project from the Ena Baćanović - Ruby and the folks over at O N N O themselves. The design is a glorious black and white logo mixing two circles and the N. I love how balanced the logo is and also the composition for the collaterals. In addition to that, the web site has a simple and elegant design, with a classic use of serif fonts.   Many Faces of Shanghai We are taking a look at the work of Ekaterina Busygina and her series about Shanghai. We have featured her work before on Abduzeedo and we just love how she pays attention to the architecture, lighting, reflection and etc. We are great fans with subjects standing in front of a giant structure. Hope you will enjoy!   Rendered by Adobe - UI/UX  We have featured the work from Serge Vasil who is a Senior Designer and Art Director currently based in San Francisco, California. He recently got to work with Adobe on making a fictitious digital arts exhibition by using Adobe Photoshop and Dreamweaver on making the branding and website. I simply love the use of really colorful and vibrant gradients and one detail I even dig even more is the gradient use for the minimal mockup shapes. It’s really neat and hope you will enjoy it too.   Berlin Interiors - Architecture Photography Berlin Interiors is a photography project shared by Thibaud Poirier and by the title you have an idea what it is about. The only difference is that Thibaud captured some insanely beautiful photos of interiors in Berlin that look like 3D renders. I am a fan of photography and have been trying to capture photos of buildings and textures however I have to admit, I don't have the eye that these guys have. The compositions, textures and colors are beautiful. I won't tell you much more, just check out after the break.   Bad Neon - Poster Series Let’s take a closer look at the work of Tarek Okbir who is a graphic designer currently based Liège, Belgium. Other than focusing his work on UI/UX and Interface design, Tarek created his amazing poster series about very popular artists. As he called it the Music Edition, you can recognize artists such as Lana Del Rey, Alicia Keys and more. Hope you will like it!   Contemporary Architecture among Old Oaks in Carmel Valley Today we will show you a very elegant and contemporary home in Carmel Valley, California, a project by Sagan Piechota Architecture. The architects used materials such as concrete, weathered steel, and natural cedar to mirror the site's natural textures and color palettes. The result is inspiring. A lot of glass allowing natural light in the house and also showcasing the amazing surroundings. Take a look.

The project was shared on their Behance profile. The reason we share this project her on ABDZ is because of its simplicity. There's something beautiful about playing with black and white and also with dotted grids. I think by mixing that with some organic textures, the designers behind this project really achieved something powerful, especially for a nightclub.   NEXT Music Player App - UI/UX Let’s take a look at the work by Alan Lu and his project called NEXT. It’s a music player with playback controls, smart playlists, music sharing and more. What I do appreciate about this project is Alan took the time to implement the little details. As we all do know that is all about the details.   Zero - Branding and Web Design Zero is a Branding and Web Design project shared by Ben Mingo, the lead designer with collaboration of Linda Eliassen for Ueno . Zero is a mobile banking experience and it works alongside a physical card. The design follows a very simple and almost monochromatic style. There's also a interesting grid with some aligned with pristine typography.   Inside Uber San Francisco Headquarters  For example the Uber Black (the luxury car option) is represented by the black glass of that elevator lobby. It is also a vast space made up of many zones of comfort with communal areas and small enclaves for solo concentration. As we are know that Uber is known for being innovative, we are not surprised that the office will embody its quality as well. This office has been designed by O+A, a design studio based in San Francisco and New York City.   The CV Tabloid - Editorial Design It all depends but let’s just say that it’s helpful in some way. Let’s take a look at what Charlotte Allen did for her portfolio and we can’t help to appreciate how it does stand out and it’s worth the effort to be innovative and creative. What do you think?

The project was published quite a few months ago but I decided to feature it because more and more I see projects sharing the same visual language. The usage of vertical text, the presence of a grid but with the elements breaking a bit the uniformity of the composition are just a few things that make this design interesting. Of course there's the beautiful imagery. I don't know how well it works but the visual design of the static mocks look quite inspiring. This Week's Perfect Office   Redesign of comp   It’s because we are featuring a designer (Aron Fay) from Pentagram that redesigned the classic composition notebook. After some research, this new design is more than just a simple redesign, it is the launch of Comp challenges the premium brands like Moleskine and Baron Fig. Available today for pre-order on Kickstarter, Comp is coming for the long run. Give it a look and support their Kickstarter! Libraries of Berlin - Photography   Last month Abduzeedo was invited to be part of the launch of a new car company called LYNK & CO. The event took place in Berlin and our chief editor Francois Hoang traveled to Germany to cover the event. While in Berlin, Francois took the time to explore the city, and his passion of photography. He captured some incredible photos of two libraries there. You probably saw one of his photos as the Wallpaper of the Week, but we would love to share more with you. SickKids VS: Undeniable Campaign   On that note, we’ll love to share this strong and solid ad campaign for the Sick Kids Foundation. Take the time to watch that video, it’s a very powerful message to share. This campaign was made possible with the mightly folks from Cossette and to me it’s one of the best ad campaigns I’ve seen this year. Hope you will enjoy! In Love with Japan - Illustrations   We would like to feature the work from Johana Kroftová and her series entitled: In Love with Japan. She’s a junior Art Direction/Designer based in Prague, Czech Republic; recently coming back from a trip to Japan. She visited Japanese cities like: Okinawa, Tokyo and Nara; Johana has created a series of minimalistic illustrations after being inspired of the places she has been. Hope you will enjoy! Fran Silvestre Arquitectos - UI/UX   Let’s take a look at the stunning work from Milk Work who is a senior designer/art director living in the Bay of San Francisco, USA. He worked on an interaction design, UI/UX for Fran Silvestre Arquitectos site and it’s gorgeous. It’s a bold move to go with a graphic design/print mindset for the web, it must have been quite a challenge for the developers. But it is quite beautiful to look at and I must imagine that the interactions must have reflected the concept. Inside the NYC Squarespace HQ   Located in the is in the historic building formerly known as the Maltz Building, which was constructed in 1926. This new space honors Squarespace’s clean and minimalistic aesthetic. As I quote:”Now, decades later, we're now proudly carrying the torch with our goal of allowing more people to express their ideas freely on the web.”. Give it a look, it’s quite beautiful and can’t stop appreciating the atmosphere. Munich Underground System  Living in a city where there’s a big underground system, I’ve always been fascinated with everything around it. The neon lights, the tunnels and just the works. Also being getting more serious with my photography for its architecture, reflections and basically what was the idea/concept coming from the architect. I guess I’ll have to make time to travel the world and explore those underground systems. It’s a way of transportation and affordable even if you’re rich or poor which makes it even more interesting.

Emojo Engine via Product Hunt A search engine for emoji From Abduzeedo Android Prototyping for Designers - Shapes and Click Event Prototyping has become a very important part of the UI/UX design process. With mobile applications taking over the web it is imperative for designers to find ways to test their designs on the devices. In the beginning most designers, including myself, relied on HTML, CSS and Javascript to emulate the native experiences that the users would see. It worked quite well and still does, however it's not a very reliable approach if you really want to understand the constraints and complexities that a developer may face when translating your designs into the final product. With that in mind, I decided to focus my efforts on the Android Platform and Java to be able to create truly native prototypes. In addition, I wanted to deliver more than redlines but reusable assets that could reduce the churn and bug fixes because of differences in the jargon used by designer tools compared to the developers. A Movie Poster A Day It’s been quite some time we last heard or seen any interesting 365 days project on Abduzeedo. We might think that designers and artists might go for a simpler route to do lettering, typography, motion or else. Some designers decided to go on another route, right to the core at making posters. Movie Poster Series by Laura Racero We’ve been encountering a several designers having their take in movie posters. I mean who doesn’t love movies? We are still waiting in line for movies and eating popcorn! We are still embracing the movie experience at its best. With the amount of content we can find online about our favourite movies, with that much content it’s always great what you can stir up with a redesign and a concept. Especially when you just watched the movie and you’re feeling inspired to create. Moody London As I am trying to be a better photographer, the more I realized how hard it is to go on a path of taking only Black & White pictures. I mean you’re disclosing yourself from so many colours and maybe it is easy to give it a try. But to me, it’s quite a challenge! Luis Branco is a product and furniture designer from Viana do Castelo, Portugal. While checking Behance for some inspiration I ended up in his profile page and was amazed by his work, especially the consoles, sideboard and cabinets that share a beautiful and modern look. The Corbusier and Oslo are classic examples of this iconic modernist style. As a fan of product and industrial design, I had to share some of his work. I also started sketching some ideas for my sideboard project. Nothing more exciting than building a piece of furniture. Beautiful Motion Design for Auto UI Gleb Kuznetsov shared some quite beautiful motion design projects for Automotive UI. on his Dribbble page. They seem to be for the new Fantasy Auto Lab project done by the amazing people over at Fantasy, a Human-centered UI & UX studio based in New York and Silicon Valley. One of the reasons I thought it would be cool to share this projects is because it has a Tron look, quite different from what we have been seeing since flat design, if that is even a style, became popular. There's much more to love than just the style. The animations and details are top notch and make me want to see the full project. The UI/UX Work of Claudio Guglieri While browsing on Dribbble, I discovered the work of Claudio Guglieri and I was just so impressed by his work related to brands, experiences and UI/UX. He has worked hands-on for brands like Adobe, CNN, Reuters, Kayak, Google and just to name a few. Claudio is the design director at Microsoft Groove and Movies & TV and he’s currently based in Redmond, Seattle. Halloween Logotypes That’s why I love this initiative from Logobaker to assemble designers/artists all over Europe to create a series of logotypes on the theme of Halloween. Spooky, cheesy, predictable, we can’t help to enjoy the different types of style that would apply to these logo designs. We took the liberty to feature all of them instead of a few, hope you will enjoy!

Available (for now) from your iPhone 7/7Plus and 6S/6SPlus, you’ll be welcomed with an iPhone case that is the true reflection of the core and durability of Otterbox and along with all those swappable modules (accessories) that will just enhanced your experience with the case. I just came back from a trip from Iceland and I took all this gear with me in the wilderness where I got to really experience and make a proper review instead of my own boring city backyard. Let’s start! STARDECK - Ultimate Deck of Cards STARDECK is a custom deck of poker-sized playing cards, the design and illustrations were done by Lunar Saloon, and printed by The United States Playing Card Company. The project was launched on Kickstarter and is waiting for our support. The people behind Lunar Saloon are my good friend Alex Griendling and his wife Meg Griendling. As we could expect the illustrations are beyond stylish and in addition to that there is a beautiful Kickstarter-exclusive wooden etching where they worked with Neutral Ground to produce. Keap the fire burning: Keap Candles Launches New Website and 'Scent-to-Home' Experience I happen to have an unhealthy obsession with candles that smell amazing so when we received a delivery from Keap Candles out of Brooklyn, NY my day was made. Upon opening the beautifully packaged discovery set of four tea light candles my olfactory senses were in heaven. Keap Candles smell amazing, are aesthetically awesome and you can also feel good about burning them because you're doing good too. Uber Visual Identity Redesign Uber refreshed their branding and visual identity in the beginning of this year and despite the controversy it was a in my opinion a solid work. I know some of the designers behind it and I have profound admiration for the work that they do, they are experts at their craft and probably some of the best in this field. The project that they shared on Bechance definitely illustrates that quite well. It's a text book project and if you want to create visual style guide, save the link because it's hard getting any better than that. LYNK & CO - Share Mode UI/UX What I particularly like about LYNK & CO philosophy, approach and business model are the fact that is more than just a car. There’s a definitive mindset behind this brand to be wide open as an open source to creation and collaboration. Some of us might think that CO from LYNK & CO would mean company but it actually means Co:operation, Co:mmunity and Co:nnection. We gotta that play of words! LYNK & CO - Introducing Model 01 As you may have seen from our social channels, we have been covering the launch of the new car company called: LYNK & CO (via our Instagram) in Berlin, Germany. It has been an exciting ride as that is our first international unveiling for Abduzeedo. As expected, we are now releasing the first official images for what it would be called the LYNK & CO Model 01.

It’s quite lovely to follow along, definitely give it a watch. For today’s feature, Bram is sharing his process on making new digital art, hope you will enjoy! CHI Development Center- UI/UX CHI is a UI/UX project for a Ukraine, development center located in Kharkiv. The project was shared by Sergey Filonenko and we can highlight a few reasons that it deserved the feature. First the nice grid system and typography. Second and most important for me, the abundant white space. They say that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication and, in my opinion, Sergey achieved that quite well. Of course there is a lot of questions on how a design like that would work in different screen sizes and mediums, however for the inspiration sake, I will keep that project on my list of simple, yet elegant UI/UX solutions Lettering Works by Joe Sutton We would like to feature the work of Joe Sutton who is a freelance graphic designer based in London, UK. He focus his work into typography, lettering and branding design. What I particularly like about Joe’s work is that he takes the time to share his process and well-written details about what can be improved from his sketches. Vinery 9 Branding Vinery 9 is a branding and visual identity project for an e-commerce website all about wine and it was designed by a fellow Brazilian Designer, Gilnei Silva. There are many ways to translate a message to a logo and then a branding system. Gilnei explored the refraction effect created when you try to read something through a glass of wine. The result is quite beautiful. The visual representation of the distortion with wavy lines is clever and elegant. I won't tell much, check it out after the break and happy Friday.

Ship Label via Product Hunt Compare, buy and print shipping labels from your phone Toca TV via Product Hunt Paperworks via Product Hunt From Abduzeedo Skull Candy - Photo manipulationWe used to feature more digital art and photo manipulation but we felt it was getting a bit too much of the same. Of course there's always space for beautiful artwork like the Skull Candy project shared by Lorett Foth. It was a project done in Photoshop, 3ds Max and Zbrush. The quality of the composition and details make us believe that the scene was real, especially the lighting. Trópico Branding Branding goes beyond the logo, we mentioned that several times. The biggest challenge for designers is how to create a system that is scalable and efficient across different mediums. Carlos Bauer and Nicholas Pierre shared a great example on their Behance page. It's the visual identity for Tropico, a great example of beautiful word mark and collaterals. The Landmarks IllustrationsWe are taking a close look at the work from Al Power and his illustrative series about various landmarks in Europe. Going through these, you can quickly recognize the Eiffel Tower, London Clock Tower and so on. Beautiful Houses: Hadar's HouseToday we will show you a small and exquisite home on coast of Stokkøya, Norway, a project by Asante Architecture & Design. The house is located right next to the water overlooking the neighboring islands and the Norwegian Sea. The place was designed for a chef and is pure inspiration.

Wallpaper of the Week: Icelandic MountainFor this week’s wallpaper, we are sharing this image by me on my recent trip to Iceland.

This wallpaper is only available on mobile for the primary reason that the shot was took vertically. There will be more coming and in Desktop versions as well, by the meantime please enjoy and follow me on Instagram.

It's like a penrose triangle. The typeface is the only thing I am not quite fan of, it looks like FF Dax which seems to be one of the favorite fonts for visual identities in Brazil. That said, it doesn't compromise the strong work done by Andrea and the other designers involved. Packaging Design: Vodka-dot I am a fan of packaging design, especially the design of bottles of wine and vodka. The work done for Absolut has been part of my design education, I remember their books only about the different variations of bottle label design and ads. When I saw the Voka-dota work shared by Den Dodson it really caught my attention. I love new ways of trying things and boy Den found one. The simple design with red bottle with white dots give this friendly almost childish look, quite inspiring. Figma UI Tool with Real-Time Collaboration for Designers It's amazing to see that today there are plenty of interface design tools for designers. In the past we were limited to Adobe, my favorite tool used to be Fireworks. Thanks to them, when they killed it a lot of people saw the opportunity to build not only a tool to replace it but a much better tool. Figma is a great example. The idea is to be the Google Docs for designers. It's a vector tool that runs in the browser and allows for incredible collaboration. I've been playing with it at home and I am quite impressed about how powerful it is. Beautiful Houses: Avalon Today we will show you the inspiring Avalon house in New South Wales, Australia a project by ArchiBlox. This is a great prefab structure that was constructed in 6 weeks. And the modular design minimizes impact in the environment. The place has a few green features and is cozy and charming. In love with the kitchen and bathroom. Take a look!

This time Netflix was the target, a designer from Portugal called Pedro Cortés, made a nice work. We used to see design concepts with a lof of effects and wow effects, this is not that special or revolucionary but in my opinion is a design concept that is really possible to be made and turn to real.

AgXXI - UI/UX The evolution of the desktop web is quite interesting, we went from Flash websites that were very unique, some quite futuristic like 2Advanced to also layouts that were more editorial. Flash allowed that kind of freedom because it didn't need to be complaint with W3C and browsers. Then the web 2.0 came and things went back to simple HTML/CSS. Now with HTML 5, CSS 3 and Javascript we start to see more and more layouts that are more refined and have more editorial look. That's the case of the AgXXI UI/UX project shared by Diana Polar.

Also comes with a sound of a back-loaded horn to reinforce the speaker's bass response. This speaker is a mixture of an experienced craftsmanship with what would come out best of wood. Boontheshop BrandingSimple and elegant branding work is always inspiring, at least for me. The Boontheshop project by NR2154NYC is an amazing example. Boontheshop is Seoul’s leading luxury concept store and of course the branding work reflects that. It's pretty much black and white and minimalistic. I know this type of project doesn't work for a broader audience but boy it looks cool, at least just to see the attention to details, from the packaging to the semi-serif typeface, everything seems very well-crafted. Exploring New York City at 400mmAs I am progressing my hobby as a photography enthusiast (beginner), I really take a great pleasure at looking these photographs.

Pixel Art by FulifuliWho doesn't love Pixel Art? I feel that growing up playing video-games like Atari, NES, Genesis, SNES really influence my taste and trigger this passion for pixelated illustrations. I remember spending many afternoons playing Double Dragon or Streets of Rage with my friends. Those games were simple but boy they were a lot of fun. So every time I see someone that is good at Pixel Art I gotta feature here on ABDZ and for my surprise, it looks like we have never featured the work of Lucile Patron, aka Fulifuli. Dafont Branding and UI Design ConceptDaFont was for sure the very first resource I used to download free fonts, back in 2003. Since then the website and the branding remaings exactly the same.

Heinz Bloody MaryHeinz Bloody Mary is a personal project, I believe shared by Constantin Bolimond. The reasons I don't know for sure if it's personal is because the project is simply beautiful done. The quality of the renders gave me the impression it was the real product. In the end I saw that was done in Cinema 4D and VRay. Anyways, this 3D packaging project is a great example that today there's no excuses for designers to not execute and showcase their work well. The tools are available, it's easy to learn online. It's all about the designer.
