UI Case Study: Almanac Artifex

UI Case Study: Almanac Artifex

We are taking a look at other than beautiful but a functional UX/UI project by Almanac Artifex by Evgeny Biryukov. First thing I've noticed is the removal of the Hamburger Button which is never easy to accomplish especially mostly designers use that feature as a Catch-All. It's not a bad thing if you do but I do appreciate the extra care to the navigation especially on Mobile. On the other hand, that gallery scroll feature was a neat feature. Hope you will enjoy. Artifex is an online collection of masterpieces, inspiring ideas and new trends. Here you can find information about remarkable personalities and noteworthy events in arts community. About Evgeny Biryukov Evgeny is a UI/UX Desiginer based in Moscow, Russian Federation.

UI Inspiration: 09 Alarm Clock

UI Inspiration: 09 Alarm Clock

We've talked before about side-projects but we haven't dig up the subject well enough in-depth. Finding the free time to work on a personal or client projects are part of a designer's great journey. Part of the projects, the idea of introducing a concept is a great challenge. Many factors have to be encountered and yet it's not always about the UI. This is why I'd liked to share this Alarm Clock Concept from Zero/Nine. I just liked how playful they made their UX flow, especially on a boring task like setting your alarm. Hope you will enjoy! About Zero/Nine 09 is a studio based in Beijing, China that mainly focus their work into UI/UX, Branding and Icon Design. We look forward to see more of their work.

UI Inspiration: Mobile Interactions

UI Inspiration: Mobile Interactions

In one of my previous articles, I mentioned that we will see more and more subtle interactions in the upcoming weeks and year. For this week's showcase, we had fun handpicking and looking at  Mobile Interactions. The thinking behind  Mobile First is not quite new but still strong enough for us to think about this perspective first in any of our projects. Figuring your user experience on smaller devices should always the primary thinking because when the screen size goes bigger, as we know things are just easier.

UI Inspiration | Layouts

UI Inspiration: Layouts

Lately, we've gone specific in subjects at sharing UI Inspirations with interactions, cards, footers and more. Today, we've put a collection about  Layouts, which is a pretty much vague but interesting to dig as well. It's great to surf through different works (in progress) and noticed the small little details. I don't personally think there's any major trend going on with layouts but there's a thing happening for subtle details to make your layout stand out more to the others. Hope you will enjoy!

UI Inspiration: Site Interactions

UI Inspiration: Site Interactions

As part of the design process, figuring interactions (to me) is the fun and best part. Some of the developers might hate me for saying this but it's a great way to make your site more alive than just a flat UI. But it's also not an easy task! It's not just about making it pretty with light interactions but how it will function too, always. In some cases, the coolest interactions should be subtle, barely noticeable. In the end, it all depends of the result you wanna achieve. So we've put together this collection of  Site Interactions for you guys, hope you will enjoy it.

UI Works by Matthias Mentasti

UI Works by Matthias Mentasti

We all have our sort of metaphors of what exactly is an Art Director and what does it do exactly. Our image of ourselves as Mad Men is hugely not realistic but in fact, they do much more than what others will think. From the beginning to the end, Art Directors should be involved in every step of the way. From the client first contract, mapping, wireframing, prototyping, figuring interactions, working with developers and making sure of their vision is showcased across the project.

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.

UI Transitions by Leo Leung

UI Transitions by Leo Leung

I always do enjoy stumbling across a portfolio of a designer that is also working as a front-end developer. The bridge/gap between the two titles are totally clashing with so many aspects of the job that makes everything more technically functional. I feel the work is more refined by knowing how the platform works instead of guessing interactions. It makes the work less collaborative but it's definitely on-point with your own vision.

We look forward to see more of his UI transition works. For more information, follow his Dribbble

Nowadays, as companies slowly but surely deviate designers towards UI, UX, Product Strategy, Testing and Prototyping. Less of us are into brand identity and even typography. I am not saying that is the future for designers but as the industry is leaning towards this forward thinking, clients and companies are asking us more be multi-disciplinary.

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.
