A new year has just started. I can believe it’s been already more than 12 years since I started Abduzeedo. Back in the day I really wanted to share inspiration and some experiments I was doing, especially using Photoshop. I remember around 2007/2008, I am not sure exactly when it was, but I saw a video of a brand new tool called Pixelmator.
Here we go, the last day of another year. I remember writing the first post back in December 2006. Things were much different. I lived in Brazil, it was summer and I was running my own design studio. Fast-forward 12 years and a lot have changed. I live in another country, it’s very cold, I have a full-time job (which I love) and I’m a happy husband with a beautiful little child.
I stumbled across this cool Behance project by Roman Lel, a visual designer & UX designer from Ukraine. He shared an entire web & mobile experience for Boston Taxi. He conceptualized a branding with a visual identity and also with the type of illustrations that shares a resemblance with Uber.
Welcome back! I hope you guys have enjoyed your time off with your family and friends. We have indeed enjoyed our time as well, it was nice to lay low for a few days, the right occasion to do different things especially during the Holidays. We are back and let's start it off with the Boxing Day.

More and more designers weighed in on how sites are all looking the same and it's true.

Providing the best experience is now more important than ever.

Fun story that is making the news lately, the original Blade Runner movie was released back in 1982 but here is the fun fact. The movie was set in the imaginary world of 2019, therefore in a few weeks we will ACTUALLY be in 2019. It's pretty cool to relive how they envisioned the future back in the early 80s.
Abduzeedo started at the end of 2006. Exactly on December 16th. The reason I started was due to necessity. My design studio had just been robbed. I had lost my computers and had to start over. In the context of losing everything, the blog was forged and as Bob Dylan once said: “if you ain't got nothing you ain't got nothing to lose”.
Atelier Irradié shared a beautiful project where they showcase an incredible series of patterns made in 2018 for Uniquely J sparkling water packaging, the 2018 campaign of French Beauty brand Une Heure pour Soi, and the new design of Glamour Magazine UK.
