Smooth UI Motion Design

Smooth UI Motion Design

Fantasy is a human-centered UI & UX lab working with in-house teams since 1999 they are based in San Francisco and New York City. If you are like me and visit Dribbble on a daily basis for some visual inspiration you probably saw their work because they put together some incredible work that of course gets featured and promoted to the front-page. I love the quality of their visual design but especially their motion design work. To showcase a bit of that I will share here with you some of my favorite shots from the Fantasy team.

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.

Long Life Wodd - UI/UX

Long Life Wodd - UI/UX

It's awesome to see more people translating beautiful typography, the kind we are accustomed to seeing on magazines, now on the web. The biggest challenge for me, especially now that I am redesigning Abduzeedo, is how to take a systematic approach and create something that works with dynamic content. We know that magazines and editorial design rely on grid, templates, styles much like the web, but it also has the flexibility of having someone fine tuning the content. With the web that is not quite possible, at least not viable for each content entry. For this post I'd like to highlight the work of Alexander Laguta. The project is titled Long Life Wodd and it's simply beautiful. Text overlapping images, classic swiss grid style composition and of course bold typography. Long Life Wood — manufacturer of thermally solid wood flooring, decking, cladding and other wood products. Our team has created a full set of tools, guidlines, branding elements and animation.

UI Design by Nerval

UI Design by Nerval

I have seen more websites focusing on beautiful grid systems that resemble magazines. The challenge still is how to create a flexible enough system for any type of content or a system that is smart enough to identify the type of content and define the layout that best fits that content. Some services are out there like The Grid. I have been spending a lot of time myself trying to come up with something simpler yet modern for the new Abduzeedo. For this post I'd like to feature the work of a young swiss student, Pierre Georges. He has been doing such inspiring work exploring beautiful designs for the web. His website is being a great example. Pierre Georges aka Nerval is a 22 years old swiss interaction designer based in Lausanne, Switzerland. Currently, he is a student at ECAL in "Media & Interaction Design." For more information about Pierre, visit his website, which is pretty cool, at http://www.nerval.ch/

UI Design: Sponsored by Gatorade Project

UI Design: Sponsored by Gatorade Project

When I started my industrial design course back in the 90s our focus was on either furniture design or visual identities. It was all about designing and creating documentation through styleguides. Today we see the evolution of this, where the focus instead of print is on digital, especially mobile apps. Sponsored by Gatorade is a simple, yet quite good example. Gatorade is well known as the official sponsor of the best champions. The awareness in Italy is almost 100% but... the number of amateurs who drink it during their training is decreasing every year, because it is perceived too far from their everyday needs. We created an algorithm that converts your burned calories into free Gatorade and other benefits. Thanks to this new interactive platform and working with the most popular apps, everybody can be sponsored by Gatorade.
