For more than a decade, I have tried LOTS of productivity tools that would somehow satisfy my demands in terms of my daily workflow whatever it was on the profession and on a personal level. But with time, I would always find little imperfections within the product, you know us being a designer.
There will always be a time on ABDZ for 'Cyberpunk Love', we are continuing our journey as kids from the 80s. We basically grew with this culture, might as well cherish it until the end of times. On that note, I am delighted to share the work of Alberto Urra and his incredible feed of 'Cyberpunk' and 'Night Photography'.
Electric cars are the future, at least that’s what it looks like from all the amazing electric car companies and models being announced. I am a fan and the desire of having a Tesla keeps coming and going. Now Polestar announces this amazing concept car, the Polestar Precept and boy it’s a thing of beauty.

A couple of weeks ago I shared some photos I took last year. The main goal was, one, to share high resolution images, and two, to create an incentive for me to take more photos. With those noble causes in mind I had the chance to travel to Europe last week for a short business trip. In between meetings I was able to sneak out and capture some photos.
Daniel Freytag and Greig Anderson shared an incredible branding and visual identity project they worked on for Rapscallion Soda, a drinking company that specializes in fresh fruit, low sugar sodas, handmade in Glasgow, Scotland.
It’s crazy to think that a design tool is 30 years young but for me especially it’s even more surreal because Photoshop had a huge impact in my career and in my life. Abduzeedo was built around Photoshop tutorials pretty much. I had, and still have, a lot of fun creating images and light effects in Photoshop.
Mike Campau shared some incredible CGI explorations for beverage campaigns featuring famous brands like Jim Beam, Courvoisier and others. There are tons of different compositions but the ones that caught my attention were the ones that had some flashy and classy neon light effects, not a surprise you might say.
Earlier in 2019, Jonathan Lindgren was approached by OPX in London to visualize the cover of Imperial College Business School Annual Report.

Sneakers! We love them, we collect them and why not create imaginative 3D models just like what David Padilla is doing through visual explorations and experiments. They are delightful, playful and purely creative through many styles of color palettes waiting to be devoured by our eyes.
We are featuring a 90s style lettering work by Ju Schnee, an illustrator based in Berlin, Germany. Each piece from this series kind of reminds you of the era of 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air', it's hard to deny anything else. Everything is there, the style, colors, quotes and more.
Flavio Melchiorre shared a colorful illustration project titled ”Tropicália” - 2020. He describes the project as an Experimental Digital Design involving modular kaleidoscopic patterns. The result is a super colorful set of compositions with a style that reminds me a bit of the art of the famous Brazilian artist Romero Brito.
It’s that time of the year that I am thinking about redesigning both my personal website and the blog. With this phase comes a lot of browsing thru inspiration examples of web design. Some are new, some are old but it’s always nice to see what it’s out there. I know that I am also stuck to simple, black and white, editorial design-like style. No neo-skeuomorphism just yet.
Simplicity is the biggest challenge for any designer. Well, at least it’s for me as I constantly battle to find ways to reduce elements, colors and pretty much anything without sacrificing usability. That’s why it’s difficult, however for some people it seems a bit easier, or they make it look easier, which highlights their talent.
