Alexander web-designer published a super cool web design concept for Ray-Ban. Ray-Ban is an American brand of sunglasses and eyeglasses created in 1937 by the American company Bausch & Lomb. The brand is known for their Wayfarer and Aviator lines of sunglasses. Alexander explored simple ways to make the product front and center. I am a fan of the simple, yet, elegant look of the site. I also love the little animation he did with the logo and the iconic form of the sunglasses.
Fak* Festival is a concept brand identity and web design project created and shared by Alberto Velardi. As the name suggests and Alberto said, Fak* Music Festival is not real, it’s fake; however the design that he created is totally real and quite awesome to be honest. I love the typography style and again, that 90s feeling of a skateboarding magazine designed by David Carson. Sometimes it does look hard to understand the hierarchy, but that’s the intention for a Fake Music Festival!
I am a fan of concept projects in order to learn and explore different concepts. I do that all the time, especially to learn new tools or practice prototyping new ideas faster. Dmitriy Kozhevnikov and Agima ru did exactly that and reimagined what Wikipedia would look like with a brand new visual language. This time they focused on a minimalist and heavily editorial web design look.
I love when designers are able to translate a classic editorial design to implementable web design solutions, even if it's just for static mocks. I understand that you might think, oh that cannot be fully done with the variant screens sizes, resolutions, responsiveness - you name it. The truth is, the only way to find out is by trying. I love designers that push the visual design exploration and seek inspiration from well-established concepts borrowed from the print world. The Q. Tarantino project is a great example and makes me want to redesign ABDZ once again.

Cam villanueva shared a super awesome mobile design as part of the rebranding project for the Brazilian city of Curitiba. Despite the fact that we are talking about a school project, the level of detail and presentation is quite inspiring and if you follow the links to the other three projects you will be quite impressed by the quality of work and attention to detail. Cam went above and beyond to create a brand and the applications for it including the work on this project, including motion design, which is always appreciated.

Rival Team shared a truly inspiring web design project on Behance for Armet. There are lots of things to love about this project, however, I would love to emphasize the grid system, and colors (or lack of). The first thing that came to mind when I saw this project was Dieter Rams, Braum, aesthetics. The orange color also brings back a lot of nostalgia to me, I don't know why but it does look cool.
We are featuring the work of Misha No, an art director and UI/UX designer based in Singapore. He has worked on a web design project for Maxima.tech. A company that built public wi-fi networks for metros and railways to make all passengers connected, the design is eye-catchy with a set of familiar colours for us to recognize the site's sections. I personally love the design of the icons, they are quite straight to the point and at the same time unique in its form.
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.
It’s time for another installment of our series of “That 90s Look is Coming Back”. Today we are excited to share a web design project that captures a bit of the essence of the 90s typography. The project was created by Daniel Spatzek and it seems to be for his on portfolio. We have to highlight the typography with that huge contrast of font sizes in addition to deconstructivism look by using masks, the black and white imagery contrasting with some red pop of color.
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.

We are featuring this case study of responsive web design & UI/UX for Geek Games. An independent game developer studio based in in Moscow. We are particularly featuring the work of Alexey Yurkov and his UI/UX design involvement into the project. The animations or shall we say transitions are just top-notch. Inspired by the principles of matte painting, the full desktop experience is so purely creative and giving its gaming background the right purpose. Definitely an inspiring project to bookmark.
Concept projects are always fun and give us the opportunity to work on different ideas or solutions for companies we love. I am a believer that any exercise is always worth doing. I would probably not use a concept project in my portfolio, unless it’s something that I believe highlights a particular set of skills, let’s say, motion design.
I stumbled across this cool Behance project by Roman Lel, a visual designer & UX designer from Ukraine. He shared an entire web & mobile experience for Boston Taxi. He conceptualized a branding with a visual identity and also with the type of illustrations that shares a resemblance with Uber. I just loved it! The experience on the other side is friendly and smooth with little interactions to complete its minimalistic approach. Lots of white negative space but it just improves the experience.
More and more designers weighed in on how sites are all looking the same and it's true. UX has been taking such a huge endeavor in our industry and surely becoming a standard in terms of priorities within companies and organizations who are building bigger teams to raise this effort. Providing the best experience is now more important than ever. That's why I truly think the importance of an Art Director will still remain in the design process and act as a key player.

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.
We would like to share the work from Daphnie Loong and Daniel Tan who are creative directors from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They recently shared the design of their studio that specialized in UI/UX, web design, interaction, copywriting and more. It's quite trendy seeing more and more illustrations integrated into UI designs which is quite amazing. It's really adding some character especially since nowadays UI designs are starting to look all alike. What do you think?
