Daniele Caruso is a freelance illustrator based in Swindon, United Kingdom. He is working mainly in illustration, graphic design and branding. We are taking a look at his branding concept for Nike: Be Legendary, for the upcoming and anticipated Tokyo 2020. With the tagline "legendary", Daniele included mythological creatures to create an artistic atmosphere alongside with the colour palette that totally reminds me of Dotonbori (the bright heart) from Osaka, Japan. What do you think? Would you like this kind of visual approach if it was from Nike. More Links danielecaruso.com Behance
We are taking a look at a very interesting redesign by Montreal-based designer Aurélien Salomon on a concept for Apple OS / MacOs 2020 with Edge to Edge Macbook. First of all, we can't help to notice the edge to edge MacBook design, what do you think? I am not too keen on the margins but it's quite interesting though. Aurélien does a remarkable at this presentation and he's pretty amazing to see his ideas/concepts for the finder, dark mode, Safari and of course Augmented Reality. What do you think of this concept? Aurélien Salomon is a UI/UX/AR/Motion designer from Montreal, QC, Canada. We love his work on ABDZ, make sure to check his Behance for more. Apple OS concept redesign ( ux, ui, product, augmented reality, operating system, windows, apple, ios, safari, music, finder, design, motion, animation, 3d). This is a concept that I had in mind for a long time and I am happy to share it with you today. It is an unsolicited visual direction exploration done just for fun. The goal wasn't to solve every problems and it is by no means stating that it is "better" that what we have now. I learned a lot working on it and it was a lot of fun.

Aldo Sessa is a concept art direction, UI/UX and web design project created and shared by Adrián Somoza. Aldo Sessa is a well-known photographer and artist from Argentina. With this concept project Adrian really takes advantage of the beautiful imagery to make a web site that almost feels like a museum exhibition. Super clean and simple it's a great example of web design in my opinion. Aldo Sessa is a multifaceted and complex artist. Like the best storytellers, he takes his pictures to stop scar of time and discover that space is full of unexplored lights and shadows, In Sessa’s each image we find the whole knowledge.

It’s that time of the year where a lot of tech blog/news would share their rumours about the next iPhone. With the fact that Apple is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, most of us are kind of eager what they will come up with. Bezels? Tiny bezels or none? Let’s take all the features aside, let’s take a look at this product design by Moe Slah’s iPhone Concept and what was his direction for the UI/UX. I really enjoyed his refined design with an updated iOS 10 UI and think it will be greatly received by everyone. In all honesty, I wish Apple will come up with a total overhaul of their iOS that gotten quite old to use every single day. Published via Behance, Moe Slah is a digital creative director based in Alexandria, Egypt. With more than 10 years experience in the design field, Moe has also a background in business administration and management information systems. He wears also many hats from also being a Behance Ambassador and worked with International companies in USA, Canada, Australia and more.
We love concepts and ideas over at Abduzeedo, we are even more intrigued when it’s actually functioning and live for the World to see. Let’s take a look at this amazing work from Rafael Dymek who has multiple roles as a Marketing guy, Designer and Web Developer currently based in New York, NY. He created a fully functioning smart touchscreen mirror based on Apple’s iOS 10 and it’s looking great! I would see this concept really working well in the bathroom for example while you’re prepping yourself for the beginning of the day. It is literally something you’ll see in a movie set in the future and how things like this concept comes to live to make your life a little more productive and even sweeter! Created a fully functioning smart touchscreen mirror based on Apple’s iOS 10. Design includes the time and date in the upper right hand corner and weather in the top left. All apps can be moved around and placed anywhere on the mirror. After 45 seconds of inactivity the mirror goes to sleep (appears as any ordinary mirror), simply tap anywhere to wake back up and resume use. Some useful things you can do with this mirror: Request an Uber, watch Netflix, read the news, control smart thermostat / light bulbs, control Sonos speaker system and more.

We’ve featured a lot of concepts on Abduzeedo, some of them are plain redesign and others are intuitively well-thought-out ideas. For example, let’s take a closer look at the work of Jay Lee who is a UI designer currently based in Seoul, Korea. He took a lovely approach at introducing a concept on Facebook where you’ll be able to send gifts to your friends or families. Everything will be accessible through mobile coupons or entering shipping information for deliveries. I can’t help to think and enjoy how his user flow really works and that is a great idea and it might work pretty well on Facebook. What do you think? Would you like to send gifts through Facebook Messenger? It's just my personal concept design project. Facebook Gift can send your heart to gift immediately when like a birthday or anniversaries of your friends. It can be accessed from Facebook Messenger app and Facebook app. Also it is recommend to the suitable gift as taste of friends. Demo More information via Behance.
One of the things I do enjoy the most on Abduzeedo is discovering the stories behind the projects we feature. Designing with a purpose and expressing a meaning or a story through the clean lines and strokes of a logo is quite beautiful. Let’s take a look at the work of Adriana Astua about designing a concept branding for organizing a Sport Games in Costa Rica. Behind the initiative, the folks from Publimark Mullen Lowe asked their team how they would envision their ideas for every single province of the country. Adriana was given the task for Cartago City. I like the fact that she used the concept of focusing her design on little mosaics, that together formed a pattern related in a diversity of architectural works. Hope you will enjoy! Cartago is a Costa Rican small province full of richness: its people, flora and fauna, history and colonial architecture. As an “elected” city to organize the 2016 Games its logo was designed unifying Cartago’s most important historical icons. The Basílica, Turrialba Volcano and Cachí’s Dam are surrounded by a sphere from Guayabo’s National Monument, achieving a powerful synthesis, elegant and with a lot of movement. Each icon is created with 5 lines as a tribute to the 5 Games rings. Credits 3D & Modeling: Tatiana Astua & Giovanni Rojas Copywriting: Federico Nieto More information via her Behance.
Between the announcement of the iPhone 7 and the most (not-so) outrageous removal of the headphone jack. I would say that what surprised me the most was the announcement of the new product called: Airpods. In my opinion, It’s not a design for everyone and it comes to a pretty expensive price. With a little search, you can find very affordable wireless headphones out there. That comes to what we would like to feature the work of Mauricio Romano and his AUXILIARY project. What is it? It’s a collaboration exploration with his community of Instagram at creating/making a conceptual headphone with a designed-wear mindset and detachable earbuds just in case you need to replace the broken one. From the sketches and doodles, you’ll get to follow his process from the piece of paper to the final render that he did his earbuds and headphones. Definitely worth checking out. AUXILIARY is a new kind of project for me. It was a design exploration with a small community of followers on Instagram. It was a journey in which we explored new forms and sparked new ideas.

Let's talk about VSCO and their recent overhaul app update that generated a lot of feedback from the community especially designers. Whenever you liked it or not, one thing for sure is no one ever (ever) like change. It's part of who we are as human beings and I don't think it's going to change anytime soon. From my personal opinion, the app has (and still) important user flow problems that disadvantage your experience with it. After Instagram, VSCO is my second "go-to" app on my phone, it's a really great photo editing app that totally change the game for me. Having thoughts, I should investigate the philosophy/concept VSCO had about this update, it would be great to share with you guys. As many would think about doing a redesign? Of course as we take a closer look of Ilja Miskov and his improvements to the app. Taking on the simplicity and minimalism of VSCO brand, Ilja took an even more simple approach to the UI and took an extra care to the icons. Which reminded how frustrating it was to navigate through the current VSCO app and really not understanding what were the icons for until you clicked on them. It still the case. But their recent redesign of the app is just terrible. Even after the update to 4.0 they have already confused millions of users with weird iconography. Many including myself wouldn't understand what those icons meant to be and what actions they do. But now with the version 5.0 the whole user experience of the app has gone wild. I don't understand how to interact with the app, I don't understand how those weird gestures they introduced should help me navigate through the app. They've made everything even more confusing, settings less accessible and even the iconography less understandable again.

Behance, how often do you go on it? How many times a day? How many times a week? We love Behance here on Abduzeedo. It has been bringing so many new artists to our attention throughout the years and we can't help to recognize its true purpose to the platform. What also brought us to our attention is this campaign concept by Vlad Likh on: "What if Behance did some massive campaign/advertising to promote their brand? What it would look like?". Let's take a look! Behance is a place that enables people to unleash their creativity. Why not use the service logo "Bē" to express this idea for communication purposes? Video About Vlad Likh Vlad is an Art Director/Designer from Triangle/Cross Collective based in Moscow, Russian Federation. He focus his work into identity, web, motion, advertising campaign, strategy & other fields of brand creation. More on the project via Behance.
It's been a long time since the last post about industrial design, which by the way, is my background. I sucked at industrial design, but I learned a lot about materials, budgeting and prototyping. I love seeing projects about the topic, especially car design. The BMW Vision NEXT 100 is one of this projects that makes wonder about the cars we will see in the future. It's a concept but gives a glimpse of what's coming and that's why it deserves a feature here on ABDZ Video
