Salah Branding and Visual Identity

Husnain Ijaz and Ahmad Ajmal shared a beautiful branding and visual identity for Salah, which seems to be a platform that helps connect the 1.8 billion muslins around the world. That’s the little I got from the description, however what really caught my attention was the design and visuals, which look simple, elegant and quite fresh. I especially like the frosted glass effect, it reminds me of my Calmaria.app :)

Colorful & Playful Type Series — 36 Days of Type

This is the time of the year where we see more designers, illustrators, artists posting their endeavors on the popular creative initiative of 36 Days of Type. It's really cool to see so much creativity and it's quite inspiring. We are featuring the work of Roger Roque, a 3D artist and art director based in Madrid, Spain. I immediately fell in love with his take on the 36 Days of Type, it reminds me of the beautiful colors of Nintendo games somehow.

Nissan 'Tech That Moves' — 3D and Motion Design

Seokmin Hong  shared a quite beautiful 3D and motion design project for Nissan. The redesign of the Nissan badge was its first update in 20 years. To celebrate the launch of this new logo Seokmin Hong and team created this short concept film 'Tech That Moves' - inspired by Nissans design process and brand experience.

Vinicius Araújo shared a beautiful 3D project on Behance. The compositions feature colorful organic experiments full of what it looks like particles or simulation of vegetation. All of that using the powerful 3D tool Houdini. 

Microsoft PRIDE — 3D Art

atypic is a digital design studio based in Denver, CO, USA and they shared their project in collaboration with Microsoft as I quote: '... to reimagine different flags for the LGBTQI+ community, with a more naturalistic composition to symbolize a connected ecosystem, which shows how while each group is distinct, the sum is greater than its parts.' It's a beautiful description of what I think comes well together into a result that brings composition and importance.

Happy Friday everyone! We would like to share the work of Danny Ivan who is a freelance 3D Imagery maker / Art Director for motion based in Porto, Portugal. His illustration series is entitled: Interference of Light 2.0, a beautiful set of creative experimentations using Maxon Cinema 4D and of course Photoshop.

Darran Furniture - 3D and Motion Design

LAUNDRY ™ and Adriana Mora shared an awesome 3D and motion design for Darran Furniture. There’s not a lot of information about the project, however I love the overall aesthetics created with pastel colors and quite friendly 3D objects. 

36 Days of 3D Type

Mark Schwindt has a portfolio with some awesome 3D work. I am particularly a fan of the 36 Days of Type entries that Mark has created. As you all probably know by now, I am a fan of this challenge and the different ways people tackle it. What caught my attention about Mark’s interpretation of the alphabet was purely related to the simplicity of the form and compositions. 

3D Inspiration by Roman Bratschi

Roman Bratschi shared a beautiful 3D project using Cinema 4D, X-Particles and Octane render titled N°371-379. In addition to that it seems that Roman also used Photoshop for some post-production. The tools are actually not as important as the compositions and the ideas in general. I am a fan of the idea of glass water drops. 

Keeper — Designed for Tomorrow Furniture

João Teixeira shared another clever and well-crafted industrial design project. As the global pandemic still takes place almost everywhere, there's a lot of habits we've created to deal with this issue. One of these habits is related to how often we take our shoes and leave them at the entrance before walking around the house.

26 Days of Type, I mean Food

We have featured Noah Camp work here on ABDZ in the past but that doesn’t mean we would not feature it again, especially with this awesome 3D project title 26 Days of Food. As the name suggests, it’s about the ultimate typography challenge, 26 Days of Type and Noah’s theme of choice was food. The result is not only clever but also impeccably executed.

Visual exploration of simple geometries and lighting in Blender 3D

Umberto Gnocchi shared a 3D project created in Blender that is a visual exploration about simple geometries and lighting. The concept is the contrast between a light looking material and a heavy object, like a brick. Umberto made a polystyrene-like procedural material in Blender and wanted to test it in some minimal scenes. “It doesn't look 100% accurate but I think the subsurface scattering is quite good” — describes Umberto.
