T. Sevén is an interaction and experience designer based in Shanghai, China. He shared an interesting project on Behance about 'AVDC Simulation Driving Experience' which is basically a driving simulator re-adapting road conditions to improve steering responsiveness. At a quick glance, this feels more like gaming experience and yet this is a step forward from this 'conventional' simulator that we will see in the aviation for example.
This is one story/feature I truly enjoy making and sharing on ABDZ. Ricardo Uribe is Associate Creative Director at Goodby Silverstein & Partners from San Francisco, California. He shared on his Behance, an augmented reality app with a really great purpose. I didn't know that 89% of stories in U.S. history textbooks are about men. Introducing the Lessons in Herstory uses AR to bring to life forgotten stories of women, right on the pages of your history textbook.
A new Pure Design Inspiration is up! One burst of inspiration roundup to kick it off for the Weekend? Why not! For this week, I decided to pull together a collection of 'case studies' inspiration. Mainly the idea came after publishing my own case study and decided to go for a surf on hand-picked shots from Dribbble.
Zion W is a brand & UI/UX designer based in Sydney, Australia. He shared a great redesign of UI and the shopping experience for one of my favorite clothing brand out there: Uniqlo HK app. I am currently using its North American version and it's a disaster in terms of its entire experience (💡). There are several things from Zion's concept that I dearly appreciate. First and foremost, its user interface is simplified and there is a consistency in the patterns for an e-commerce shopping experience.
A new Pure Design Inspiration is up! One burst of inspiration roundup to kick it off for the Weekend? Why not! For this week, I decided to navigate through more 'UI Design' because I needed some inspiration myself for personal work so I might as well share them on ABDZ. It's good eye practice and always great to find new ideas in the 'wild'. We have several great prototypes featured in this roundup, hope you will enjoy this week's collection.
We are taking a look at the concept by designers Stugbear and Shota Xaxaleishvili on a store concept called: Superlative. They have worked on the web design, UI/UX and also the interaction design. The desktop experience is clean and I love the interactions especially on the menu. It totally enhances the shopping experience.
Did you ever ask this question? How much a UX designer earn around the World? I did 'Google' that very same question recently for a personal/career life change that is about to happen. I decided to share this reliable source I have found from PingPong who have built a site titled: uxdesignersalaries.com. It's a helpful overview to learn more about how our job is recognized all over the globe. It's very insightful and I would like to add a note they are other factors to consider other than the salary.
A new Pure Design Inspiration is up! One burst of inspiration roundup to kick it off. For this week, I decided to explore 'Mobile Design' as we are saying a higher trend of rounded corners just like our previous article on 2019 Biggest UI Design Trend and further the rise of transitions treated like 'tabs' or collapsible hidden sections who are waiting to be triggered. What do you think? Is it something we will see more in the future?
Minimalist app design seems to be more than a trend but a expected evolution for interface design. Before people were not familiar with these new touch devices, it was important to make sure things had a connection with the real things, therefore the hyper-realistic design full of shadows, depth, texture and colors. I am not saying that it's not important to highlight what is tappable or not and trust me, I am very familiar with the subject. But the more used people get with the devices the basic interface starts to take the passenger seat and let the content drive the user attentions.
Bodega Los Cedros is a Mexican vineyard located in the mountains of Arteaga, Coahuila. The origins of the name derive from a passion and dream of a family to produce high quality wines within a region more than 100 years old named "El Cedrito." Enter the talented team at Anagrama Studio to bring the branding vision of this magical place to life by tapping into the geographical location of the vineyard for inspiration.
Momkai shared on their Behance a collaboration between the clothing brand Tommy Hilfiger to reinvent the retail experience by placing interactive screens right on the physical display to enhance the in-store experience. There is definitely a cool factor that would eager people to give it a whirl. I would also think this will be a good placement for advertisements of some sort through promotions, branded content and more.
I have been posting more often about web design. There reason is, of course, I am in the process of redesigning the blog and I need some web design inspiration. For this post I'd love to feature the work of Adrián Somoza, a senior designer @MediaMonks, based in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Oliver Gareis has shared with us through our Facebook, a cool web design concept for U.S. Women's National Soccer Team.

He has this great ability at adjusting text, layout, and imagery with style to enhance our desktop experience. For U.S.
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.

Useberry is an intuitive user-testing tool, which provides codeless prototype analytics.
If you are a Spotify user, you must remember their insanely beautiful 2018 Wrapped where each year, this initiative will attract quite a buzz on social media. I personally loved the UI layouts and especially getting the data on which songs I listened the most during the past year. Imagine crossing 20+ millions of fans visited the campaign site on the first day alone. That's beautiful!

Back from my #ABDZinShanghai trip and slowly getting into things here on ABDZ. Wanna kick right back in with the UI/UX browsing experience concepts for Overstock.com. Designed by Aleksey Stiques and Stan Rapp who took this popular shopping site into a delightful experience. I love their concepts for browsing by colours and style and the subtle transition when navigating through the menu navigation. Check it out!
Gregoire Vella shared a very interesting visual design concept project on his Behance profile. He tried to reeinvision Dribbble, one of the most popular places for designers to share snapshots of work. I remember when they launched, the value proposition was to be the Twitter for designers. It became a bit fancier than that with time, in the beginning people would share drafts and explorations, now everything is quite polished. I am not saying it’s bad, just an evolution of the initial idea.
