Lipault™, a French luggage brand based in Paris, France. We are following their recent redesign of their e-commerce front by Werkstatt. More specifically the role of Pierre-Jean Doumenjou as Lead Art Director on the team. At first glance, it's a lovely design with a tremendous accent on the image portion. They are promoting the products with so much flair, you can tell that Lipault™ is a luxury brand.
Kulik Oleg is a graphic designer and a UI/UX designer based from Kharkiv, Ukraine. We are sharing his web design concept for the United States history. It's an interesting approach especially with his colours, bright orange! Do you think it does compliment the images well? I do love his choice of typography and the text layouts are intuitive plus easy to read. One particular thing that I do like a lot is how it is presented. Because of the projects we see all the time on ABDZ, I have rarely have seen this approach and it's quite good.
It's not my first time seeing this but the use of 'illustration' in product design is very important nowadays. Most of us designers are eager to craft the simplest and most intuitive user experience. Meanwhile, we do sometimes neglect the use of illustrations to communicate the features with much more tenacity. This is why we are sharing the work of Aldiyar Aidash who is a product designer taking a stab at illustrations, really great stuff! It's definitely will be inspiring some of us to take the right 'virage'.
Hrvoje Grubisic shared a beautiful brand identity and UX/UI design on his Behance profile for Uinetry™. You've probably noticed that we launched a new design and we focused on simplicity, so as you expect this project I am sharing with you here is another example of minimalist and still very elegant style. I love the grid system and how the whole system works so well, going from the logotype to collaterals and digital.
We are featuring a very interesting case study that involves 'interaction design and UI/UX' of a medical app concept for parents who needs attention for their sick kids. It's a good problem to solve, as a parent/designer. We are definitely aware of how bad are the current solutions related to healthcare, I am sure they are good solutions but it's not available for everyone to use. Maybe one day, soon enough. Another thing to note, the case study we are sharing today is by 7 ahang, a student from Hangzhou, China.
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.
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.
Ilya Sablin and Sergey Nikonenko have shared what I think a pretty unique project on their Behance. Particularly on the technical side of things since it's NOT just about an interface, they are pushing forward to the entire experience including its technicality, functionality and security.
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'. As a context of having a 'workspace' with a navigation, data, and what are the little micro user interactions designers are putting an effort on to create a simple and interesting experience.
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.
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.
Product designer Moe Slah have shared with us a concept for Facebook AR. Moe is doing an excellent job at creating these concepts especially in a way to bring ideas and experiments together. Starting off with the branding with an interesting logo concept and cheers on pulling its multiple use cases. The overall design is very similar to the current Facebook UI but what's great is Moe's take on the AR itself, it kinds of reminds me of what Google is doing right now with AR mode in Google Maps.
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.
A new Pure Design Inspiration is up! One burst of inspiration roundup just for you. For this week, I decided to surf Dribbble with the mindset of 'banking app design' inspiration. With the launch of the Apple Card, designers are taking a stab at experimenting with concepts and they are filled with 'gradients'. Yes! It's coming back for real, what do you think?
We are taking a look at this web design project by Dops Digital, a studio based in Lviv, Ukraine. This featured 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!
A new Pure Design Inspiration is up! One burst of inspiration roundup just for you. For this week, I decided to explore Dribbble with the theme of 'mobile design'. There are a huge trend with 'rounded cornered shapes' in UI design especially for applications. I haven't really seen any live product with this trendy design yet? If you have any references, give me a shout. I will gladly give it a look.
I am been following the work of Steve Schoger for a little while now. He has been brought to my attention via his Twitter account whenever he shared one of his design tips and/or on Refactoring UI via his YouTube channel. So it's all about UIs but it's another take on what makes the 'interface beautiful' but more into what's make it practical.
Efir Media shared on their Behance, a series of Web & UI layouts to showcase their skills and how much efforts they put into their projects. And of course, it's inspirational especially on the part with the animated transitions. They showcase a different kind of variety of projects from a full web experience to a responsive design.
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.
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.
