Hrvoje Grubisic shared a beautiful web design project featuring a crisp and classic typographical look. If you look at it very closely you will understand why I love it. It does remind me of some of the screens of the blog, but Hrvoje definitely did a much better job than I did here.

Ruslan Kulikov is a UX/UX designer based in Moscow, Russian Federation, he has shared an interaction design for Frisbee, an in-depth team management application where you can set up your team, control budget, communicate and more. Taking a closer look at his concept, there are a few very interesting ideas that Ruslan has conceptualized. On mobile for example, a little detail that makes the difference is how the prominent action is differentiated by color and labeling at the same time.
Elvis Benício shared a visual proposal for a WFH ("workout" from home) fitness app that helps people to build healthy habits. Both visuals and typography were inspired by the concept of the body movement creating a narrative across branding and product. The result at once communicates, contains, and embodies the inclusion of fitness for everybody. The visuals are clean and the bold typography gives it the app design a nice editorial look.
Studio Fabio Biesel is an independent Design Studio based in Ravensburg, Germany. They create visual concepts and designs with a penchant for typography. “Whether it's corporate design, animation, web design or type design – as long as it thrills us – we are interested” - they mentioned in the project description. It’s hard for me to not be biased, as I share the same name “Fabio” but the work is truly awesome!
Canvas Study WebProject is a site that JungIk Lee created while studying HTML Canvas. The ultimate goal was nothing more than just having a site where JungIk could see the progress of his studies. We, as spectators, could not be happier to witness that and use it for inspiration. For more information make sure to check out the website at https://canvas.jjangik.com/?ckattempt=1
Maxim Soloninkin shared a minimalist web design project for Snøhetta, a globally renowned architecture, interior architecture, product and graphic design company with over 240 employees from 32 countries. I love the work that Maxim has done here and will definitely use it for reference for some abdz.do changes I am planning very soon.
Rron Berisha shared a web design project that is definitely worth sharing here on abdz. The site was designed for Arlind Aliu is a Munich based creative developer. Arlind seeks to create projects that break the limits between technology and design by creating aesthetic, memorable, and unique digital experiences. The site features smooth animations based on scroll events alongside with a crisp visual language. The only think I don't like is that initial loading. It reminds me of old sites made in Flash.
Bang Bang Education shared a web design concept for A—Book. Basically the idea was to design a site for searching, reading and listening books. The solution is to bring four key sections of the site to the main screen. So the main screen serves as a navigation through the tabs new, collections, genres and authors, rolling up into a sandwich menu inside each section. For better recognition, genres are color coded, the book receives the color of the genre.
Tiffanie Mazellier and Peter Demulsant shared an interactive and web design project for for Peter himself.

With 7 years in the App Store and 1.5M users, Musi had a head start, but required an overhaul to bring it up to date, and compete with services like Spotify and Apple Music.
Polestar 5 is one of the leading companies in the automotive industry in Asia. In partnership with Firstsquad have worked in creating the in-car experience of what would be the future of Polestar 5 and their fully autonomous vehicle. The project provided a mixture of 'service design and also 'pure conceptual vision' of its future. What I love about these concepts are the first drafts what we would call: 'the initial wireframes'.
Petya Harmash and Egor Kostuchénko shared a web design redesign concept of Lufthansa website, the largest German airline which when combined with its subsidiaries, is the and the second largest airline in Europe in terms of passengers carried. The name is derived from the German word Luft that means “air” and Hansa for the Hanseatic League. The concept design features a clean look with good contrast in terms of typography.
Valery Kasilin is a UI/UX designer based in Moscow, Russian Federation. He shared via his Behance profile, an app design that is a very fitting application for the times we are currently living in. The holidays are coming soon and not everyone has the luxury to spend time with their relatives. Some of the reasons are components of the current life situation or others are purely taken by safety and precautions.
We are sharing the an iOS concept of the Alfa Bank on iOS designed by Mihail Grinchuk, a digital product designer based on Saint Petersburg, Russian Federation. This is officially our first case study sharing mockups with the new iPhone 12 Pro (Yay!). Back to the case study, first of all, it's a nice redesign. Most of us will be familiar with some of the visual approach since it's somehow a standard now in financial technologies. You know what I mean if you think of 'dark mode, graphs, cards at the top of the layout and etc.
Neumorphism or shall we say Skeuomorphism is a hot topic in UI trends. For the past months we have been talking, debating, and even more since the release announcement of the macOS Big Sur coming this fall. Why? Because it's cool! One thing, I do like about this 'style' is the craft that goes into an icon design. Something we have neglected since everything is 'flat' nowadays. I do like this shift, obviously there will be debates all sorts of things but why not.
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.
