Print Inspiration: Business Cards

Print Inspiration: Business Cards

Do we still use the  business card? I love the business card, might be a bit 90s old school of me but I found this concept still working nowadays. With all the social/portfolio platforms where we can share our work like your own site, unlike the business card. It's still very fond to show an impression of yourself on a piece of cardboard. Coming to this, I don't think there's a trend in designing a business card. I think the best concepts are the ones that relevantly showcased either you, your brand or the company you represent.

UI Inspiration: Footers

UI Inspiration: Footers

One of our colleagues on Abduzeedo was looking for inspiration about  Footers. As simple as it is, it was a bit tricky to find some good ones. Why? Because the idea/concept of the Footer is fairly simple, everything that isn't as important as the information we put into the Menu or Hamburger Menu will ended-up in the Footer. Is it a good practice, it depends on how you look at it. For mostly, the hierarchy of the Footer is usually for additional information like widgets, subscriptions, links and etc. You will see in the following collection, some of them tend to break these rules.

UI Inspiration: Cards

UI Inspiration: Cards

I really do enjoy surfing on Dribbble for inspiration, it's really a great platform to see what people are working on and possibly some of the latest trends in action. For this week, I thought about putting together a collection on:  Cards. Cards are to some the future for Web Design, not because Google did it! I personally kind of agree with that, for the main reason of making the web more responsive and with the challenge we daily encounter different screen sizes. It can be manipulated and also by keeping its creative side.

Hibernation Series by Øystein Aspelund

Hibernation Series by Øystein Aspelund

Coming out from the Winter season, the change of climate and temperature get me all fuzzed up about the nature. We don't take much time looking at what's around us, the daily reality that we tend to forget with our busy lives. Well, Øystein Aspelund does understand this concept and his "hibernation" series totally reflects that. The series HIBERNATION is a series which investigates subconsciousness, and the sometimes grey boundary between truth and fiction. It is a personal project that is utilizing man and his relation to the landscape as an investigative tool. Based upon real places and events, this series is intending to catch the moments when our daily reality and our subconscious world sometimes strike each other. It is a stream of frozen moments, where the story between each frame is as important as the frame itself. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); About Øystein Aspelund Øystein is based from Trondheim, Norway and he's a photographer is quite interested in visual expressions. Coming from an architecture background, he enjoys exploring his images through themes and ideas. Like many of us, Øystein just let his camera takes him, to a different world where people don't usually see. For more information: http://oysteinaspelund.com

UI Inspiration: Product One Pager

UI Inspiration: Product One Pager

Following from last week's Stores Inspiration, I thought it would be great to share more in-depth UI design by putting together this collection of  Product One Pager designs. Based on the analytics, it's really interesting to see how brands showcase their products knowing that the user is giving them very little time on their sites. I truly believe in data-driven designs where any improvements can be made and supported by data to create a better experience.

Web Design: Stores Inspiration

Web Design: Stores Inspiration

Independent Brands, I feel there so many out there nowadays. Free from the outside and happily working without a hassle at making their own trademark which is a very good thing. The old days when only big brands were ruling are gone. Part of the brand process, one of the many crucial things to associate with to your product is your site. If your customers/target audience doesn't know what your product is all about after a few seconds then all your efforts are worthless at this point. Get your hands on with your users because it is more than a "Menu + Header Image + CTA" formula. It's about transcending your image/brand to the right customers.

Traveling Cars Adventures by Kim Leuenberger

I found Kim's work on Instagram and was instantly hooked to her Traveling Cars Adventures series. As she says at her website, the series shows her little toy cars in dramatic situations. And I gotta say it is hard for you not to fall in love with her toy cars and embark on their journey. Kim is currently lives in London where she is studying Photography at the University of the Arts London. Her pictures are delicate and inspiring. You can totally put together a whole background story for her little cars. I'm a total fan of her pics and I had to share them here with you. Take a look! My name is Kim Leuenberger, I was born in 1992 in the North West of Switzerland in a region called Jura. As the regions is quite small and lost in between two chains of mountains, I started to travel a lot around Europe, hungry to discover more of the world and be a real explorer. I always liked photography and started it at a very young age, however I only owned my own dslr for my nineteenth Birthday. It has been love at first sight with a little nikon d3100. Almost 2 years I've upgraded to a Canon 5d mark iii and learned all I know about photography by myself, by reading magazines or websites. I now use a range of different cameras to capture the car series, with an Olympus EM5 mkII and sometimes a LeicaQ. I love being creative with my photography as well as documenting the life around me. I love making objects and tell a story through my pictures, music is my biggest inspiration, I named many of my pictures after songs of my favorite artists (Mumford and Sons, Ben Howard, etc..) And don't forget, we are all explorers of this beautiful world!

The Work of Sir Carma

Sir Carma has a hobby and it's to make Voxel Art. Currently located in Paris. Sir has a full-time job in a web agency and making Voxel Art is only an activity during his free time. Grewing up in the 80s/90s, the influences came from the 8-bit and 16-bit games like Zelda for example. One of Sir's dream is to one day, making its debut by making his very own game. What is Voxel Art? Well, to me it reminds me of Final Fantasy Tactics. But the definition is an art form that represents a value on a regular grid in three-dimensional space. It's primarily based upon its position relative to other voxels (pixels, points and polygons). Seeing life in voxels For more information check out: http://saymygame.com

An Homage to the Starman (David Bowie)

As you probably heard about the passing of David Bowie during the past week. Leaving behind, a legacy about his music, personality and beautiful things from the Starman himself. It's amazing to see artists coming together and expressing/submitting their own memories of David Bowie. Here are a few of them.
