Motion Design and Illustration: Loopy by MUTI

 Loopy is a graphic design and motion design project created and shared by MUTI on their Behance profile. This project caught my attention because it shows where our industry is heading in my opinion. The project is a set of motion design pieces on very stylish illustrations, the sort of illustrations we would see featured on design sites just a illustrations a few years back. Now, however there's subtle and elegant animations, which really takes it to a new level. As the title of the post suggest, they are all perfectly looped motion graphics. Check them out.

Product Design: Anicorn Hidden Time Watch

 I think most of us shared our love for gradients. As a designer, I do! What if it shares the time through a gradient on a beautiful watch?! This is the product design we are sharing today named: the Hidden Time Watch. It’s a play on the colour contrast of the gradient to tell the time, it’s quite a genuine concept. It almost feel like an optical illusion and I think it’s such a cool factor. Currently on Kickstarter, the watch is unisex and comes in three colours including rose gold, black, and white.

Graphic Design and Visual Identity: Feiner Herr

 Let’s take a look at this visual identity & graphic design work by Hojin Kang in collaboration with Sebastian Haus for Feiner Herr; a street food startup that is all about pancakes with a twist. I really appreciate how the approach totally fits with what Feiner Herr is all about from the colours, product, the chef and that fancy looking truck. Hojin totally nailed it, hope you will enjoy!

Web Design and Visual Design for Nokia OZO

 Nokia OZO is a web design, interaction design and UI/UX project shared by Viktor Vörös on his Behance profile. OZO is a virtual reality camera, the first of its kind and of course it looks extremely futuristic and the work that Viktor did an excellent job showcasing it on a beautifully simple and elegant web site. The cool thing about his design is that the camera is always on the first plane and everything looks secondary in a way. The images of the camera always pop and the low contrast text and black and white theme help with that quite a lot. Enough of descriptions, check it out after the break and let us know what you think.

 VSCO is an editing app that I use almost every day to enhance workflow with my photography through taking photos, editing, filtering and sharing them. That being said, I am always wondering about the architecture inside the offices will look like, a behind the scenes look to see their work environment of such a genuine app that changed the way we take pictures.
