It's been quite a while since I last spent time looking for inspiration on Dribbble. Not to brag but things are most or less the same which is unfortunate, to be honest. But on the good side, I stumbled across the work of Isaac LeFever, which by the way is a badass name to start with. Isaac is an art director & illustrator based in Seattle, WA, USA. After browsing through his work, I have a huge fan of the overall visual style.
Alright, seeing more and more of this new UI trend called 'Glassmorphism' on Dribbble and social platforms. What is it? Well at the first glance, it looks like another variant to past year UI trend 'Neumorphism' that we enjoyed ourselves featuring on abdz. I think it's cool and seeing designers experiment with new ways to play on interfaces whatever we think it's accessible or not. Or if you think it's relevant or genuine step onwards.
At abdz, we are on this 'rampage' to learn Blender 3D which is an amazing 3D tool and it's free! Fabio has been doing lots of cool stuff and me I am more learning the ropes at the moment. After watching a few video tutorials and surfing on Dribbble, I feel confident to take a deep dive into the 3D world. I have been trying to push myself for the last decade, I think it's time eh? As usual, when starting something new, it's always a tradition to go on Dribbble.
New week, a new abdz. 'Raw Design Inspiration' to kick it off. No theme, absolutely 'raw' inspiration. Being an abdz., inspiration is one of the biggest fuels in my everyday life. Whatever it is for life and work balance, it comes in many shapes and forms. For me, I do appreciate a good surf on Dribbble. It's all about how we consume our feeds, I noticed a shift of change from designers on sharing their work on social media platforms like Instagram.
As of late, I have been building my second 'design system' at my workplace. It's funny how much things go smoother, faster, and what I have learned on my first visual system months ago are now applied. For this inspiration, I wanted to share what inspired me during this process in terms of 'visual design', what inspired me in terms of typography style, layouts, colors, and presentations applied to their component libraries. Essentially how their 'design system' is presented, I believe we all follow somehow a similar standard in terms of UI components and how we build our pattern libraries.

Ever since we introduced the new abdz. design, I haven't really taken advantage of some of its key features to help us share 'inspiration' on the blog. One of them is the 'video embed integration' that I have been requesting for quite some time, now it's here. For my first roundup, I wanted to share a series of 'user interface inspiration' handpicked from Dribbble.
Working at building a product, as a designer. I spend most of my days designing and chasing down tickets to stack up enough work for the 'development build cycles'. Recently, I had a ticket that required a 'landing page'. It has been a little while since my last design and I decided to give a thought and do surf on Dribbble. There a lot of cool stuff but also repetitive designs by sharing a common behavior. But most of them were pretty cool, I decided to share a couple of them in this feature.
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.
Since the beginning of the year, we are having fun sharing about 'Skeuomorphism' and now Neumorphism which is now the 'newer' term from Skeuomorphism. How about we called this trend: Neumorphism UI👋 One thing for sure, whatever you think it's a trend or not; it definitely had us creating Neumorphism for UI kits, integrations or this cool soft-UI CSS code generator by Adam .
A new Pure Design Inspiration is up, it's been a little while! I was caught with our move to another country but things are settling down. One burst of inspiration roundup just for you. For this week, I decided to explore Dribbble with the theme of 'dashboard design'.

If you have any references, give me a shout. I will gladly give it a look.
A new Pure Design Inspiration is up! One burst of inspiration roundup to kick it off. For this week, all the submissions hand-picked from Dribbble are all about 'micro-interactions'. What is it? On an interface, say after the execution on an action per se, a little animation pops in, that's a micro-interaction. They are designed to delight the user, to welcome, to engage and to create a moment in goals of a successful action and/or satisfaction.
A new Pure Design Inspiration is up! One burst of inspiration roundup to kick it off. For this week, I decided to go again with 'typography'. We had such a tremendous response from last week's pure roundup that I decided to give it another whirl. Are we making a comeback with this medium? We have been seeing UI designs for the most during the past year, maybe we needed a change?

Following the other article, I decided to push forward a #Pride Inspiration roundup of designers celebrating #PrideMonth, hand-picked as always from Dribbble. Having a family member celebrating pride with so much joy, it's a mutual celebration for me as well. During this month, I just love how we are putting an accent on love, awareness and sharing stories that make us proud. It's with a lot of happiness I am making this roundup, please enjoy!
