Samsonite Rebranding Campaign

Nowadays, I like to think that any brands/companies with an existence with more than two decades, with how advanced is today's technology and social media. They must be trying to re-invent how the users will or can interact with the future of the brand.

Motion Design for the Comprehensive Pixel 4 Visual System

I own an iPhone 11 Pro and the Pixel 4 XL and I have to say. Pause here, the Pixel 4 is much nicer from the industrial design point of view than the iPhone. I am talking about just the way that it feels when holding. There's something about the black rails, the pop of color of the white one and the simplicity that makes it especial.

Is this really coming back? UI Design Trends

We posted about this new trend a month or so ago, however it seems that it’s really picking up steam on sites like Dribbble. With more and more people sharing snippets of working exploring this style it makes me wonder, is the skeuomorphism or as we call it now, the neo-skeuomorphism coming back?

Packaging Design Awesomeness: Abrogratto

Abrogratto 18 is a brand of premium, ready-to-drink bottled cocktails. As it is a small company, they have chosen to create collections of small batches of classic cocktails, the first one being Negroni. The visual identity of Abrogratto 18 is versatile and neutral so that it can adapt to each of the collections without losing the essence of the brand.

Designer Spotlight: 3D work of Peter Tarka

Peter Tarka is a designer with an incredible portfolio. I literally spent hours just checking his work and paying attention to the details. Peter’s 3D style is quite friendly, for lack of better word. It reminds me of Nintendo games actually.

Motion Design Monday - Rise

Monday is our motion design day. Why? Well, just because it’s fun to say motion Monday? Honestly there’s no reason but the Aamir Khan totally deserved to be feature and shared here on Abduzeedo. It is a mix of beautiful 3D work with super smooth animations using Cinema 4D, Adobe After Effects and Adobe Photoshop. It’s also a personal project of Aamir.

Beautiful Liquify Logo Animation in After Effects

I have been going back through old tutorials to fix some of the images that might be broken or with old formatting. The blog has changed quite a lot since we started 12 years ago. It’s incredible to see how many Photoshop tutorials we’ve written and how some of them stood the test of time.

Industrial Design and Brand Identity for Unicorn Scooters

The amazing people over at Unicorn scooters reached out to us to share a bit more about their vision and of course, their design process. They create a scooter totally focused on the idea of sharing. It’s electric and has a super sleek look. Everything is really well thought out, from the industrial design to the brand identity. We also love to receive this type of message.

Star Wars 3D Illustrations

I know this might sound crazy and you can unfollow me right now, but, I am not a fan of the Star Wars franchise. I actually enjoyed watching the first trilogy back in the 80s. I have this clear memory of a Sunday afternoon, a rainy day. My parents are sleeping on the sofa and my brother and I are on the floor with blankets watching the rerun on TV.

For this post we will feature some from the December Everydays 2019, make sure to check out his work for the full set of images.

Cyberpunk Motion Design

It looks like one of the new trends will be the cyberpunk one. From video-games like Cyberpunk 2077 to the of course incredibly polemic Cybertruck from Tesla. My prediction is that we will see more and more references to that style not only in the design industry but in general. One area that is clear that is already drinking from that source is special effects and motion design.

UI Trend 2020: 'Skeuomorphism' Design is back!

A couple of minutes ago, a good friend of mine living across the Atlantic sea. Sent me a 'designer meme' to laugh about. It was a joke about designer/developer handoff supported by a beautiful UI inspired by Skeuomorphism design from the old days, circa around the 2000s. It reminded me how this is making a comeback somehow, is it?
