Web Design & UI/UX: Mindshapes™ Concept

Web Design & UI/UX: Mindshapes™ Concept

It's an interesting concept that involves web design & UI/UX by Szymon Łucarz for Mindshapes™. It's an exploration of your mind through our era of technology. The web design is an immerse experience of subtle interactions to explore shall we say the different state of your mind. It's quite an astonishing design, I wish there was a live app to try. One thing though, we gotta give Szymon for his presentation skills, it's quite lovely! What do you think? There isn't much information about Szymon Łucarz but you still should follow him on Behance.

Awesome PlayStation Store Web Design by Julian Kraske

Awesome PlayStation Store Web Design by Julian Kraske

Julian Kraske is a designer from Frankfurt, Germany and he shared a super awesome web design project on his Behance profile. It's the redesign for the PlayStation Store. There are so many cool things to say about it but I will start by highlighting the clean and light theme. I feel that most game stores tend to be dark, which is usually associated with hardcore and stereotyped gamers. In reality there are so many people playing video-games that it seems to be smart to make a theme friendlier. That's exactly what Julian did. Another important things to highlight is the bold typography, generous whitespace and long shadows. I know those are quite trendy web design attributes but that is how the industry moves and in my opinion Julian was able to balance things pretty well. I am not sure about the search results though, I feel that vertical list is always better for displaying search results. Web design

Web Design & UI/UX: Lionsgate Pitch Concept

Web Design & UI/UX: Lionsgate Pitch Concept

I used to be a great fan (and still) of pitch concepts, it's such a great exercise to do with your team or even with yourself. The goal is to attract a client for project by getting out of your comfort zone with an idea and going through the whole design process. I love it because you get to experiment ideas or even try concepts that you wish you could have done on another project. We are taking a closer look at the work from Rolf Jensen for a pitch he had to work on for Lionsgate (in collaboration with Real Pie Media), I love how the background colour is part of the UI where buttons aren't adding an additional foreground colour. It almost feels like an app but through a web experience. Check it out! Rolf Jensen is a freelance interactive director based in Lower East Side, New York. We have featured his work before on ABDZ, please check him out on Behance. These visuals are pulled from a design pitch I created for Lionsgate and Real Pie Media in LA a while back, yet this is some of the most recent work that I was able to show publicly this year, but more to be shared soon.

Web Design for the 15 Years of Nike SB Dunk

Web Design for the 15 Years of Nike SB Dunk

  Matt Schreiber and Jessica Necor shared an awesome web design project highlighting the 15 years of Nike SB Dunk. It's a great project with a beautiful grid and smooth animations. I am a fan of skateboarding, especially its culture and style. I used to be a skateboarder, well, I still get my board from time to time but I am more of a follower now. There are so many things about this particular sport that is quite interesting. It's perhaps one of the sports that you can be really creative. So many variations of tricks, also the style of the rider, the clothes, the shoes. Nike realized that and started focusing on skateboarding. Now back to the web design, check out some images below. R/GA Portland and Legwork Studio partnered with Nike SB to celebrate 15 years of the Nike SB Dunk and usher in the next generation of SB Dunks. They built an interactive archive to house some of the most iconic stories behind one of the most iconic shoes of all time. Web design  

Web Design & UI/UX: Explore the Moon

Web Design & UI/UX: Explore the Moon

Starting the week with a Web Design & UI/UX project that is more of a concept by Moscow-based 108 Studio. Let me rephrase this by saying that the concept is pretty detailed and going in-depth about our beloved Moon. With the monotone background and contrast, I just love the micro-interactions for the image carousel and button clicks. It truly enhances the whole desktop experience. 108 Studio is a web design & development studio based in Moscow, Russian Federation. We are looking forward to see more from them, give them a follow on Behance. 'Explore the Moon' from 'Moon Science Museum' is a project that collects information about our planet Earth’s bewitching and lonely natural satellite — the Moon. This glowing ball in the night skyline stores a lot of mysteries and riddles, that are yet to be revealed. Photo Gallery   More Links Follow 108 Studio on Behance

Minimalist Design for Nike Desktop and Mobile Concept

Minimalist Design for Nike Desktop and Mobile Concept

I am a fan of minimalist design and the work that Anton Skvortsov shared on his Behance profile for a concept idea for what the Nike store could look like on desktop and mobile is an amazing example of minimal and elegant. It's hard to evaluate minimalist design when it comes to user testing. Some users might always prefer density rather than focus on less. It's okay, but some companies can definitely afford that and Nike is a great example of one that I think it could work. Below you can see some images and a bit of the process. There's a lot to love about this project, especially the web version. The grid the nice navigation, I also have to point that the designer didn't take in consideration different display sizes and resolutions. In my opinion the text size is extremely small as well, almost to the point that I don't know if it could be readable, especially on mobile. That said, I think there's a lot of good ideas here and they definitely inspired be for some changes on the Abduzeedo redesign I am working on. In visual arts, music, and other mediums, minimalism is a style that uses pared-down design elements. Minimalism began in post–World War II Western art, most strongly with American visual arts in the 1960s and early 1970s. Wikipedia Minimalist design Anton is a UI/UX and web designer from Russia He has other really cool projects like this on his portfolio and I highly recommend that you check it out.

Elegant and Minimalist Web Design Ideas

Elegant and Minimalist Web Design Ideas

I am always trying to redesign or improve Abduzeedo's web design. At least once a year it becomes reality but that doesn't mean I just tried one design. I spend considerable amount of time coming up with variations. In order to do so I am always looking for web design inspiration, especially minimalist ones. Vedad SiljakMunich has a lot of really nice explorations on his Dribbble profile. They all have that classic editorial look with great contrast in typography, excellent use of white space and imagery. Most of them seem to be just visual design explorations but they give me good references to try on Abduzeedo. If you look at the site today we are trying to make it more editorial and simpler. There's a new design coming soon that is an improvement of the current one. Our challenges are still, the degradation of data and especially the imagery. Even though we control that, we try to diversify having not the same style of imagery. Anyways, this post is about Vedad's work and I hope you get some good references to improve your web design skills. Vedad SiljakMunich is a full-time freelance graphic and UX designer based in Munich. He is fascinated by the skate and surf culture, which we can see a little bit on the projects we shared below.

Web design: Savee. All your inspiration in one place

Savee. is a new service that helps you to save and organize your images and inspiration. It works like FFFound and Designspiration in a way but has a different visual style, more bold for lack of better word. I saw this project and thought it had a really beautiful web design and style, then I saw that it was created and shared by Andre do Amaral I was even happier. Andre is a Brazilian designer based in the Bay Area and currently working at Netflix. He is from my home state and of course that gets the right to be featured here on Abduzeedo. Web design Savee it is the best project I've done through my career. It's a fun and intense side project that still requires a lot of my time, but I love it. I believe that detail really matters. So I designed and built with few other talented minds the simplest tool for users to save images from any website.
