Process is something that I truly cherish, we can learn a lot by being open about our methods and learn from our successes and failures. This is why I like how Vision Trust presented their project for Software Mind. A global IT service and software company with clients and projects all over the world. The team from Vision Trust served their expertise at the UX, UI, Front-end and Back-end.
Just got back from Singapore after a 5-week traveling over Asia including Japan. When I was in SG, I was at some point in need of some cash, so I used one of their ATM machines. This experience got me curious about their user experience approach that banks and users are having in regards to money. After a little surfing, I have found a concept for OCBC Personal Banking. Designed by a UI/UX designer from Moscow, Russian Federation named Alexander Lygin.
A concept from designers Artur Konariev and John Jackson who worked on a social portal called: Millennials. A networking platform where users will be able to connect and collaborate to achieve greatness through exchanges and more. From the UI standpoint, I wish there was more differentiated through the different levels of communication on the web design, overall it looks great. Would you use another social platform? Or seeing smaller integrations inside a bigger platform like Facebook.
Let's take a look at this web design by Ovik Mooshlyan for a furniture website concept. He is a UI/UX designer at Cetis Branding Agency based in Moscow, Russian Federation. His retail concept has interesting points to share with having the total straight in the navigation bar. I personally liked the grid system which was pretty unconventional where he didn't use any shadows or blur. We are getting used of seeing more and more retail web designs looking more alike to each other, it's nice to discuss a design taking another direction.
What a great time to be a designer, even better if you are working with UI and UX. If you stop for a minute and think that less than five years ago there landscape of tools for UI and UX were very poor. Fireworks was gone and Sketch was in its infancy. Fast forward to today and the story is very different. There's an abundance of tools and they keep getting better. That's the case of the new Adobe XD version that Adobe released today. Go ahead you can download it already.
We are sharing the work from creative director Daniel Tan from Tofu Design based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Say hello to his concept entitled: Aero, a flight booking experience for the Web. At first glance, it's definitely an updated UI with "less clutter" that would just fill the experience with legal information and ad placements. There are cool ideas like the one-click access but I particularly like the "See your journey" feature, that's pretty neat and totally enhance the booking expectations.
Design Systems, a term that is easily misunderstood among many of us or within the industry. Why? Well, it's because we all have our own conclusions about what is a Design System. I don't personally think there are any right or wrong ways of creating a DS (Short of Design System). I believe that it all depends on what is the scale of the company you are working for whatever that is small or big. This is where the difference should be more affected by. We can go deeper on ABDZ if you wanna know more about Design Systems.
It's that time of the week for our collection of UI/UX designs to boost your UI inspiration. We are focusing on cool animations, layout designs, UX thinking and more. We are mixing it all from static, dynamic and even live prototypes, this might be a great weekly series to bookmark! This week, we are kicking it off with a Workout App screens designed by Dumnoi Ikechukwu and also a clean UI for Restaurant Finder App by Adam Sokołowski.
Happy Friday everyone! I wanted to end the week with this UI/UX case study by the folks from Tubik Studio, a kickass digital studio based in Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine. We are showcasing one of their latest projects, the mobile UI design for a perfect recipes app. An application where you will be able to learn to cook by following recipes and also a food shopping experience.
We are taking a look at this web design project by Dops Digital, a studio based in Lviv, Ukraine. Their latest project is about either a concept or an upcoming new site for National Geographic. It's an overall lovely design! The idea as and I quote: "...in order to bring people as close to the nature as possible". Built with an 8-Point Grid, the visual approach will be mostly about vertical rhythm to play with the repetitive pattern. It's pretty neat!
It's always interesting and inspiring to see what incredible brands like Google is publishing on Behance. Today, we are having a little glimpse at their process into the Google Home App. More precisely at their informative onboarding animations for users when they experience the setup of their devices. What is to retain is the animations are shipped in code using Lottie. What is Lottie?
Lino Russo shared a beautiful brand identity and UI/UX design project for Coolio Mag,a new american magazine built from the ethos of popular culture. From creators to curators, influencers and innovators we understand that in today’s world attention is the new currency to brands. Those that generate the most attention, generate the most traffic, which allows brands to monetize.
Cuneyt Sen shared a really cool project on Behance for an app design presentation as well as brand identity for Bonarego, a tourist guide application with video & audio targeting today's independent travelers. The reason I like this project is of course interface design but also the way it is shows the features. From the UI point of view there are a few nice touches. I love the organic element it was created and how it is used on certain elements of the UI, like the avatar for example.
It's that time of the week for our collection of UI/UX interactions to boost your UI inspiration. We are focusing on cool animations, layout designs, UX thinking and more. We are mixing it all from static, dynamic and even live prototypes, this might be a great weekly series to bookmark! This week, we are kicking it off with a very cool combination of colours and UI components designed by Slava Kornilov.
We are checking out this UI/UX concept by Alexsander Barhøn of the current Universal Music Group site. First of all, I love the UI approach with what he calls it the Acrylic Concept where you will be welcomed with a soft-blurred shapes mixed into sections like events, music, videos and more. I also really enjoyed his interaction design across the project where the transitions are kept rather pretty minimal and smooth as well. Overall, really cool concept!
It's that time of the week for our collection of UI/UX interactions to boost your UI inspiration. We are focusing on cool animations, layout designs, UX thinking and more. We are mixing it all from static, dynamic and even live prototypes, this might be a great weekly series to bookmark! This week, we again stayed away from animations/interactions but we have lots of beautiful UI static interfaces. I really enjoyed this week's cover image of a UI design for the newly IGTV by Bradley Ziffer .
As we are currently playing with inspiration and concepts of the new ABDZ site and part of the process is to revisit what we love and hate from the current design. Also what can be improved in terms of reader experience as well, the blog has been alive for more than a decade now. We are going on the blog every single day but we have to remind ourselves not to build any bad habits. We are taking a look at the work of Piotr Kaźmierczak and Prowling Wolves.
Munseong Yeom and Seongmin LEE shared an awesome UI/UX design post on their Behance profile. It is titled Avaya and it includes much more than just the interface, it's actually a full branding project, including the logo. For this post, I want to feature it more because of the website and the interface, but below you can see the full description of the project.
Shoeciety is an app design concept project created and shared by Juan C. Fresno. As you might already know, I am a fan of personal projects. The fact that you take some time from your busy schedule is always something to be celebrated. If someone asked me for an advice, which I am sure no one would be that naive to do so, I would say, try to find time for personal projects. You can practice everything you want and in the end, I guarantee you that you will be better off than when you started. Look at this project that Juan shared.
What do you think we should post more articles about AR/VR on ABDZ? We don't do it too often, maybe we should. A good example is what we are featuring with some AR/VR design for the Musée de la Civilisation located in Montreal, QC (Canada). Behind the project, we have the work of the amazing folks from lg2 and they have done an outstanding job with the entire experience. The UI is particularly minimal, almost feels like iOS from Apple. I would really be interested to give a tour and experience this new direction for museums of the future.
