Website Design & UX: Formerly Yes Store Concept

Happy Monday guys! Let's start it off with a web design & UX project of a store concept named: Formerly Yes. The thinking behind this concept would be both quite aesthetic and easy to use. Indeed, going through the project; the UI is indeed quite minimal accompanied with simple interactions. Lots and lots of negative space so you eyes are focusing on the products nor anything else. Designed by Milk Work where we have featured before with his work on Fran Silvestre Arquitectos. Behind this stunning work, we have Milk Work also known as Sergei Gurov.

Let's take a look at this project about Web Design & UI/UX by Kamila Figura on her work of a hotel & spa named New Wave.

Web design: One Letter One Song UI/UX

Web design: One Letter One Song UI/UX

One Letter One Song is a web design, UI/UX and art direction project shared by Aykut Yilmaz on his Behance profile. There is not a lot of information about this project on the page but I assume it's a game about music skills where you have to figure out the title of the song by know the first letter? Am I completely wrong? Anyways the visual design is bold, colorful and in a way a bit unique. The iconography is also beautiful with very thick strokes. There are some new trends in place like the very long shadow on the browse page, and they look quite wonderful. Take a look after the break and let us know what you think.

The Journal concept is a web design, UI/UX and graphic design project shared by Bohdan Kononets and Slava Kornilov on their Behance profile. As the name suggests, it's a concept project for a journal or a blog if you prefer. There are so many good things about this project, in particular the detail pages.

Web Design: Redesign of Lux Capital

Web Design: Redesign of Lux Capital

Lux Capital is a web site redesign project shared by Christopher Reath on his Behance profile. This web design effort is an excellent example of graphic design and UI/UX done properly, at least in my opinion. You guys might already know how much I appreciate simple black and white themes for UI and Lux Capital has a lot of that, with a pop of color with the accent red color. The website was designed to be screen agnostic, so that anyone was able to experience the site regardless of their device or screen size. Typography wise, the site features a bold, Swiss style with Brown and Aktiv Grotesk for the typefaces.

Femme is an art direction, web design and UI/UX project shared by Ruslan Siiz on his Behance profile. What can I say about this project besides it's awesome. I love the different variations of the layout with grid of images, sometimes in Pinterest style and others in a much more magazine/editorial look. As web design goes, I believe this project features all the major trends in web design. The detail pages are gorgeous, including some split screen designs, another very hot trend right now. Anyways, I am taking so much notes for some refinements I want to add to ABDZ this year. So check out the Femme project and let us know what you think.

Web Design: Squarespace Re-design

Web Design: Squarespace Re-design

Squarespace Re-Design is a web design and art direction project shared by Peter Bagi on his Behance profile. I have been a fan of Squarespace pretty much since they started. I thought about moving ABDZ to their service, however it's not an easy task, even though it's still in my plans. Back to the project, the new design follows the simplicity and the black and white theme that have become almost their signature.  There's much more to love and I feel that they achieves something extraordinary with less imagery and much more typography. The project was broken up into different phases. Concepting, wireframing/UX, design iterations, prototyping with Principle and finally full development. My role was to create sub features pages along with helping support the design leads on the main page design. The main page web design features some quite elegant solutions for footer and an interesting grid system with two columns but with different widths apparently. It's an smart solution to create a look that feels more editorial. Another signature component of their brand was preserved, the Gotham font for titles, headings and links. They use Gothan always in all caps. Another detail that I quite like the the letter-spacing or kerning. Much wider, which gives a even more modern look. Anyways, take a look at some of the screenshots below. Web Design About Squarespace Squarespace makes beautiful products to help people with creative ideas succeed.

UI Design - Trello Atlassian Redesign Concept

UI Design - Trello Atlassian Redesign Concept

Trello Atlassian is a UI Design concept project for the redesign of the popular service Trello. It was originally shared by the Netguru Team and it's an extensive exercise on how to improve a tool that their team use daily. They also got motivated by Atlassian's acquisition of Trello and that motivated them to think about a complete visual refresh of the product and try to make a little bit "slicker" - as they mentioned. We are well aware that a comprehensive redesign would be based on a host of different factors: business objectives, user needs defined as a result of data analysis, and so on. We were not aiming at a total overhaul of Trello – we focused exclusively on Trello's visual experience, bearing in mind all the limitations of such approach. The project was created by Anna Klawikowska, Michal Parulski and Serge Soskowiec. They are designers from Poland and part of the Netguru Team. Their work range from graphic design, typography and UI Design. I highly recommend you to check out their Behance profiles for the complete portfolio. There's really inspiring work. UI Design A Trello board is a list of lists, filled with cards, used by you and your team. It’s a lot more than that, though. Trello has everything you need to organize projects of any size. It works in real-time. When somebody moves a card, it moves on your board instantly, no matter what device you use. You can keep your tab open all day and never have to refresh. Plus, Trello opens and loads so fast you won’t even notice. - via Trello.com

Website Redesign - Schüco

Website Redesign - Schüco

Schüco is a website redesign and UI/UX project created and shared by Alexey Ivanov. There's a lot to love on this project, from the minimal approach with big and bold typography to the beautiful imagery that they used. I am a fan of architecture so the photos and the type of layout works incredibly well in my opinion, take a look after the break. In the last couple of weeks, i visited the site Schüco, and realized that this company’s website is outdated and requires a redesign. The site should follow the new visual identity of the web redesign concept: minimal, fresh, user-friendly. The analysis was made to make key changes such as: Improve site navigation, Freshen the look, Introduce new interactive features to the site, Correct structure of the site, Fix the technical components of the site. Website Redesign About the designer Alexey Ivanov is a designer from Fargo, North Dakota in the US. He has over 5 years of experience in web design and likes to create stylish & creative web and graphic design projects

Product Design: Listener's Playlist

Product Design: Listener's Playlist

Listener's Playlist is a product design project shared by Anzi. It started on Facebook as a group where friends would share their favorite music. It evolved to a complete app that uses SoundCloud API. There's also a lot to love in terms of design, very minimal and simple with huge focus on the content. In addition, I could highlight the bold typography. It's quite elegant and despite the fact I don't like the hamburger menu, the design of that screen is quite beautiful. Another detail that adds a lot of value is the sound waves animation that divides the content. It was quite clever and adds those little moments of delight that captivates user's attention.

QBC dance studio - UI/UX

QBC dance studio - UI/UX Design

QBC dance studio is a branding and UI/UX design project designed by Alexander Shmelev. 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. Alexander is a graphic and web designer from Moscow, Russia.

CHI Development Center- UI/UX

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 Sergey is a UX designer from Kharkiv, Ukraine. He has quite a few beautiful projects on his Behance profile. I have an special admiration for the simple UI/UX ones. For more information check out https://www.behance.net/ffiilll UI/UX
