Personal projects are fun, we all know that. They give us all the freedom to try things that would be more difficult if we had to consider all the constraints of a real project. For visual design it's an exercise that helps to explore different ideas. The issue I see is that if it's a pure visual design project it can be a bit unrealistic, unless you also have a prototype considering the different screen sizes and content degradation. Josué Solano took his spare time to redesign the fashion designer Alexander Wang's website.
UI/UX Incase eCommerce Design
We posted about Boosted Boards a few days ago, it's a great product and I see a lot of people moving around here in SF with those boards. Their website is also amazingly done. The work is from the talented folks at UENO but Robbin Cenijn shared some more details behind the Boosted Board Pre-order site. There's a lot to love, it's simple, elegant but for me what really sets it apart is the beautiful use of motion design. We selected a few screens here to share with you.
Globo.com is one of the most popular web sites in Brazil. I'd say that the main reason is because of the popularity of the TV Globo, they dominate the marketshare, but I have to also highlight that their website is one of the best news site in the world. I know a few people that worked there and they are some of the most talented designers I know. This project is a good example of the UI/UX work behind a product like that.
