Concept projects are always a great way to learn and improve your design skills. It gives you the opportunity to try new things, ignore some constraints or really focus on particular areas you think you need to improve.
We are taking a look at this web design project by Dops Digital, a studio based in Lviv, Ukraine. This featured project is about either a concept or an upcoming new site for National Geographic. It's an overall lovely design! The idea as and I quote: "...in order to bring people as close to the nature as possible". Built with an 8-Point Grid, the visual approach will be mostly about vertical rhythm to play with the repetitive pattern. It's pretty neat! The team over Dops has done a tremendous job with the interactions, let's a look at the "search" for example. The UX pattern is different from what we are used to. With no input field and a smooth animation to trigger the "search". Along with more features, you should definitely check out the entire project.
