Having a bit of a nostalgia moment tonight, I was looking for some motion to share on ABDZ and went instead full 80s. I wouldn't lie, I totally wasted a few productivity hours watching 80s clips on Vimeo. I had to feature the work of Arkuma again, he is a freelance motion artist and graphic designer based in Heidelberg, Germany.
I haven't posted about illustration projects for a long time. I have been a bit too focused on brand identity and UI/UX probably because it's something closer to what I do at work, which helps me to get inspired. However the work of Raul Urias is simply phenomenal and I had to share it here with you all.
We are sharing the work from Ranganath Krishnamani who is a designer & illustrator from Bangalore, India. I came across his work while doing the Daily Design Inspiration articles.
We are almost at the end of the week, let's share one burst of inspiration roundup, calling it: Pure Inspiration. We have our UI Inspiration but this one is more scattered. We are not trying to be focused but sharing a series of images from UI interactions, photography, illustration, graphic design and so on.
About little less than two months ago, we have featured the Peak Design Travel Line and they have been crushing their Kickstarter goal. With an initial goal of 500K, now they are over 4 Million with over 11K backers. That's an insane outcome but I am not that surprised.
With all the reviews of the iPhone Xs coming in, it seems like Apple has earned another step forward with their latest iPhone. Some might differ by this opinion but I guess we will know for sure with the upcoming iPhone Xr coming out next month.
Sebastian Weiss is a photographer and a columnist at the AD Architectural Digest Germany, based in Hamburg, Germany. His work has been featured in many architectural publications and now on ABDZ.
About a week before I leave for Japan, I am really excited about it. We will be spending quite some time in Japan and ONE of the places we will try to visit is the Ribbon Chapel in Hiroshima Prefecture by Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP.
h3l © shared a super cool brand identity project for Cargobot. The development of Cargobot's identity is inspired by classical modernism. His functionalist personality alludes to the simplicity of movement as the main identity axis.
David Milan shared an awesome typography post on his Behance profile. It's a collection of experiments playing with calligraphy and lettering. I particularly love this type of work. I used to spend so much time practicing Photoshop and Illustrator to be able to do similar artwork.
Jokes aside along with all the memes that we have shared about the "new" iPhone XS, we also always go into this dilemma about whatever you should upgrade or not. That's how Apple is good at marketing their new products (especially how they listed them to confuse the hell all of us). For me?
A subject we don't usually post are about films, not necessarily full-length movies but video campaigns. I love seeing smaller or independent studios taking on big clients like adidas for example. Let's take a look at the work from Worship Studio, a studio based in Toronto, Canada.

We are sharing the work of German Kopytkov who is working as an illustrator and a senior visual designer at Google. He has released a set of illustrations for Google Hotel reviews. What's cool about this set is you will recognize similarities in the colors from the Google logo.

How good are your paper cut skills? Mine are terrible. I won't do a good job even if I just need to cut a straight line on a marked paper. So I'm always amazed when I see how good artists out there are with paper cutting. It is incredible how simple pieces of paper are transformed into intricate and realistic shapes. It is all about creativity, talent and cutting skills.
What a time to be a designer whatever you are in the field of UI/UX, Interaction Design, Product Design or a Graphic Designer in transition. There are many incredible design tools out there and we are lucky to have such a variety to get things done or to integrate into our workflow. But now the thing is, which one is the right tool or the ultimate tool for my personal work? Your studio?
Daria Stetsenko shared an awesome brand identity project on her Behance profile. It's titled Jays : Coffee Brewers and it is for a coffee shop in Zaporizhia, Ukraine. Main brand qualities are the local roast, arabica only menu, manual brewing, convenient location, and fast service.
Lucas Olsson shared a really cool web design concept for the Swedish brand Sandqvist. There are a lot of things to love about this project, I would highlight the minimalist look with excellent typography and of course the black and white theme.

One of the best games about Spider-Man is out (only for PS4 so far) and has been making a lot of buzz beyond about its gameplay, graphics, and incredible open-world experience. I personally haven't tried it but definitely looking forward to.
