Intercellar - Accidental Anomalies of Particle Wallpapers

Intercellar is a series of free wallpapers designed 'by accident' by Crtomir Just. I mentioned 'accident' because 'the images are the results of errors in particle simulations'. I think they are super stunning and crispy. We took the liberty to share Crtomir's entire collection and their 'download links'. You can download the 8K wallpapers, this feature is a reminder of what we used to do back in the days. We are definitely living in different times but it's always a nice reminder to remember what we were made of.

Illustrations for Demetre's Winter Sweet Menu

It’s a bit of an old project by Sean Lewis but I thought it was perfectly suited for ABDZ. During these pandemic times, we had to find ways to be more creative with our daily lives. I think we all did somehow. For my case, now I am currently living in Switzerland, I still remember the simple walks that I would take with the family especially early in the morning.

Captivating Pixel Art Scenes

When I was surfing on Twitter today, I stumbled across this 'tweet' shared by our good friend James White who was reminiscing the early days of 'design internet' and how everything used to be about the pixels and the little details. We became so standardized in our principles that we tend to forget what the 'internet' used to be. Inspired by this moment of nostalgia, I decided to feature the work of Pixel Jeff, a pixel art who has been making magic for more than 10 years.

The masks we wear by Vini Naso

Vini Naso, a visual artist from Canada shared a very interesting series titled: 'The masks we wear'. With the current moments that we are all familiar with living, I think it's fitting perfectly our 'new normal'. Vini instead took a different visual approach based in 'human emotions' with a definite flair and honorable knot to the Japanese culture, Cyberpunk, and modern fashion. There are quite fascinating and I truly love it. It totally brings attention and the execution is so detailed and so unique in creation.

Synthwave Art Scenes by Denny Busyet

How about some 80s/90s Nostalgia to kick off the long weekend ahead. Whatever you are still in confinement or even lockdown, I thought about sharing some art to live up our spirits during these weird times. As you may have heard us saying that before but inspiration comes through many forms, what's important is how does it affect you to stay sane, creative and more. For me, I am a very fond individual of nostalgia. I think it's part of who we are and totally define us during the journey of life. We are almost there gang, #stayhome.

Material World: Unused R&D Explorations

Rutger Paulusse has been teasing with his new colorful & vibrant series titled: Material World. I just love the fact that Rutger mentioned that these are from unused R&D experiments that happen all the time. Usually, we do forget about it but I just dig how Rutger embraces them and goes beyond deeper. Speaking of colors, I mean take a look at these gradients! It's lovely and it is embracing the exploration meanwhile you are trying to achieve a result needed for the project.

Conceptual Hovercraft Explorations by Thierry Doizon

Fellow Montrealer Thierry Doizon has been cooking up a series that has definitely caught our eyes.

Coming from a background of game design from Ubisoft, all the illustrations are playfully reinstating a mixture of art direction and obviously automotive design. Check it out!

Designers and artists come together to spread the message - Stay Home

Day 18. I am starting to lose count, I would be totally transparent, yesterday it was a hard day to go by. Spring is here and you do miss the time spent outside, hanging out with relatives, friends, and colleagues. But we have the right reasons to stay inside, it's not easy but it's the right thing to do to stop the spread and actually save lives. To regain sanity, I enjoyed surfing on Dribbble and I couldn't help to put together this article for you all.

It was the Future... series by Benjamin Bardou

Day 14 of Confinement. Was it the future we all wished a couple of decades ago? One thing for sure, the entire planet is currently experiencing an 'invisible thread' that has touched many for the past weeks. Our advice to you? Listen to your leaders and make sure to take proper hygiene measures to stay safe. Whenever I am watching the news and see the emptiness of some of the cities in the world. You cannot help to think about scenarios of fictional movies about the off-world. It's really weird facing this type of realism.

MINSK3049: A quarantine homage from Belarus

What can I say, the recent news is really taking its exaction on the entire world. It has been touching us somehow and it's really important to keep the spirit up during these very hard times.

He has been creating a series titled: 'MINSK3049' in homage of his marvelous city of Minks during this quarantine period.

With all that has been happening lately, the overcome feeling of uncertainty about the future is always present. What will happen tomorrow, it's a day-by-day question that we just keep asking ourselves. There are downsides and upsides as well, I think we should face our reality and find ways to embrace this moment somehow. We are featuring the work of Yury Ostapchuk, a conceptual artist who is sharing his vision of a nearby future. Let's take a look!

'Somewhere in the World' dreamlike spaces by Mue Studio

Mixing fantasy with pure experimentation, we follow this series titled:'Somewhere in the World' by Mue Studio. I just purely love how the kind folks from Mue Studio took a minimal approach and by at the same time mixing it up with architecture views. To be able to create this series, they obviously used Cinema 4D and they do a tremendous job at creating them through a vibrant color palette. What do you think? You just love the 'pink' on this one, props!

BMW E24 635 CSi Widebody - Automotive Design

It's not common that we have shared with time how much we became such fans of 'automotive design' on ABDZ, there is a mixture of a lot of things including design, industrial design, automotive design, and more. To kick off the week, we would like to share the work of Dmitry Mazurkevich who has created 'widebody kit' for the BMW E24 635 CSi. From the details, lighting, perspective, you will be enjoying its vibes and tones resembling the cars you would see on the Fast and Furious movies.

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. David does a tremendous job of giving his personal pieces, visual identities, and proper authority of fashion. Hope you will enjoy!

90s Style & Vibrant Lettering Works by Ju Schnee

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. Quite lovely if you ask me. After reading Ju's project blurb, you can't help to share the same views on the daily challenge that aren't related to client or work per se.
