Elegant Web Design for Industrial Designer Naoto Fukasawa

Arthur Galustyan shared a simple, clean and elegant web design he worked for a Japanese Industrial Designer named Naoto Fukasawa. I love the simplicity of the design and how it gets lovely within the interactions when they are played from transitioning from pages to pages. Personally, I am obsessed with the bottom 'description card', it adds clarity and again uniformity. It pays such a beautiful homage to Naoto's work and at the same time putting his work in a very delightful perspective.

Web Design Inspiration: Landing Pages

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.

A collection of game interfaces for your inspiration

Hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend. As a designer working in the universe of user interfaces, I think we all somehow had feedback on 'game interface design'. Personally, I would have feedback on everything that would involve an experience. For games for example, it's an introductory to a virtual world where we usually go to escape the 'real world' and enjoy ourselves to stress down from our daily lives. Especially during times that we are currently living.

Brutalism in Web Design

The 'raw concrete' of the Web, unconventional, hard-coded, creative? In a few words, these are some of my keywords I have in mind when mentioning 'Brutalism'. If you go on Dribbble at the moment and you start surfing the first few pages, you will see what the community calls it the overall 'design trends'. I am not saying it's bad but we all somehow fall into this pit of standardization of what should be the basics of UI. We would like to showcase a few cases of 'brutalism in Web Design' that goes the boundaries of the basics and they probably had a lot of fun making these.

Designing the future of TV - UX/Product Design

Aside from web & mobile applications, it's not every day that we stumbled across a case study for 'Television Experience'. More specifically for AppleTV and tvOS, even adding to that medium. Imagine designing experience in another language in combination with English, how about 'Hebrew'? Well, that's exactly what the fine folks from Designit collaborated on with yes, Israel’s leading TV provider. It was also a strategic transformation from a satellite service into a transition their core TV service delivery to the internet.

Product Designer Portfolio: Karolina Szczur

I recently discovered fellow designer Brian Lovin and his useful and inspiring product design portfolios. I definitely do recognize a few names in that list and wanted to feature a few on Abduzeedo. Let's meet Karolina Szczur. Obviously, she is a product designer and has worked on projects for Calibre Design System and Help Scout Rebrand.

Introducing Neumorphism UI Trends, we wanted this.

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 UIđź‘‹ 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 .

UI/UX Interface Concept for Harman Kardon Citation

We are featuring the work from Cristian Lorca who shared an interesting concept on his Behance profile for Harman Kardon Citation. Bringing another level of touch with speakers from the Harman Kardon family. At first glance, you can't help to appreciate all the levels of the process shared in the documentation. It's concise and clear. You wouldn't think there is so much work to design such a small interface but wrong.

UI Trend 2020: 'Skeuomorphism' Design is back!

A couple of minutes ago, a good friend of mine living across the Atlantic sea. Sent me a 'designer meme' to laugh about. It was a joke about designer/developer handoff supported by a beautiful UI inspired by Skeuomorphism design from the old days, circa around the 2000s. It reminded me how this is making a comeback somehow, is it? It's kind of being inspired all together with recent 'chef d'oeuvre' related to 'Retrofuturism' mixed with spacial stuff. Since all UIs nowadays are designed to be flat, boring but integrated through systems.

Redesigning a Smart Home, the future home experience

Let's start it off by saying that I really do enjoy diving into a student project. Fewer boundaries and more room for creativity. This is what we are mostly striving as we go deeper into our career level, once you understand your work ethic and establish a solid structure. There are times where you would just love to create something without leaving it out to requirements, user stories, feedback and etc. Pure fun, I think we all should somehow have a side-project to experiment and have fun with it.

Interaction Design: Ninety Nine Seconds Game Prototype

This is a game prototype that I would love to share on ABDZ, it's a prototype (soon-to-be-released) designed by Sylvain Theyssens, Anthony Meric and Oleg Pashkovsky. First, the game is all about timing as I quote: "You are given only ninety nine seconds to succeed. The more you play, the fastest you become, and further you can go". Interesting concept right? Now let's take a closer look at the interactions, they are quite subtle especially on the UI but it gets quite creative with the game itself. It will be interesting to give it a try when it will become available.

Lipault™ E-Commerce Responsive Web Design

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.

Web Design: Aunited - United States History

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.

Insightful UX Articles for Designers

We previously share about our recommended UX articles for product designers and we are back with another list of articles about forms, UI minimalism, trends, hover and more. I do love taking the time to read through these articles, there is a lot of great people out there that doesn't mind sharing their knowledge out there so in the end, we can all create/make beautiful experiences together.

Smooth UI Motion Design

Fantasy is a human-centered UI & UX lab working with in-house teams since 1999 they are based in San Francisco and New York City. If you are like me and visit Dribbble on a daily basis for some visual inspiration you probably saw their work because they put together some incredible work that of course gets featured and promoted to the front-page. I love the quality of their visual design but especially their motion design work. To showcase a bit of that I will share here with you some of my favorite shots from the Fantasy team.

Recommended UX Articles for Product Designers

As part of my daily routine with all the extensions, links, newsletters and everything else. I'll bookmark a lot of links for my offline-to-be-read-later reading and I thought it would be nice to share my recent bookmarks about  UX. There's really good subjects/articles out there to dig into the matter and it's great to easily get updated on the latest trends and practices. Hope you will enjoy so I'll make more similar articles for you guys.

Web Design: Stores Inspiration

Independent Brands, I feel there so many out there nowadays. Free from the outside and happily working without a hassle at making their own trademark which is a very good thing. The old days when only big brands were ruling are gone. Part of the brand process, one of the many crucial things to associate with to your product is your site. If your customers/target audience doesn't know what your product is all about after a few seconds then all your efforts are worthless at this point.

Vimeo Design Concept

Another really cool design concept. This time designer Fayaz Mohamed designed this concept for Vimeo, a niche community of extraordinary professional motiongraphers and film fanatics. Check it out! For more from Fayaz Mohamed visit behance.net/mfayax.

SoundCloud Redesign Concept

Danish designer Mickey Switzer designed this concept for SoundCloud introducing written content. The main purpose was to get a clean, clear website that is easy to navigate and with a lot of attention to the small details. This meant — among other things — updating the basic identity with fresh icons, fresh colors and a new logo while giving attention to the existing UX.
