Hristo Hristov is a designer based in Frankfurt, Germany. He has put together a quite inspiring set of comps on web design featuring a quite elegant editorial design style that seems to be perfect translated to the web. I found out about his work while browsing to Dribbble for some web design inspiration. There are a lot of things I love about his work, from typography with huge contrast of font sizes to the composition of the page structure. I am definitely taking some notes from his projects for the new Abduzeedo design.

We all love to feature great work, especially when that comes from our hometown. That's the case of the project that I'd like to share today, it's from Marco Almeida and it's a web design project for Coza, the leader brand in domestic plastic products in Brazil. I also recommend that you visit the web site at https://www.coza.com.br/ - it's even better when we can see the design project and the real thing. Good job Marco!
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.
Web design is getting more stylish every day. The editorial look with nice grid system has become a reality. Still we run into some issues of having to design a fluid system to be fully responsive. That ends up with 2, 3 or more different designs for the same project. However it's nice to see desktop taking full advantage of the technology to create stunning looking design. Alexander Laguta and Kate Laguta shared a great example of the state of modern web design.
Oliver Gareis has shared with us through our Facebook, a cool web design concept for U.S. Women's National Soccer Team. Oliver has worked on projects like the web design for the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice movie. He has this great ability at adjusting text, layout, and imagery with style to enhance our desktop experience. For U.S.
Edouard Spriet shared a super elegant web design project for a travel app called Rimowa, one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of premium travel and carry-on luggage made of aluminum and polycarbonate. As a luxury brand, Rimowa needs a collaborative platform to showcase and share the latest news and collaborations between the brand and major or emergent artists.
Nikoloz Ergemlidze is a designer based in Paris,France. He has shared some beautiful web design projects on his Dribbble page. They feature not only great visual design but also clever motion design ideas. For me what it's interesting about his work is that it adopts elements and style of what I consider the newest trend in web design. It's highly editorial, with a rigid grid with elements well organized to create almost a poster like visual.
Andriy Bata shared a very stylish web design concept for the National Geographic web site. It features pretty trendy style, with a clear grid system and very minimal. The imagery provided by the topics that National Geographic covers makes things a bit easier. Overall it's a nice study of web design, but in my opinion it fails on very important aspects, especially accessibility. Some texts feel just too small and with very little contrast from the background.
Slava Kornilov shared a beautiful web design project on his Behace profile. It features not only the visual design but also well crafted motion design studies. I love the overall design solution from the grid system to the imagery and typography. This style has become quite popular lately and it will definitely influence the design of the new Abduzeedo site. In addition to that this project was created for Geex Arts.

Artem Litvin shared a beautiful web design concept project he created for the Discovery Channel. The amount of work is nothing less than astounding. I particularly like the editorial look and feel with big typography and excellent imagery. It feels almost like that could be the Discovery TV app, if they even have one. My concern about this type of work is always how it scales or behaves depending on screen sizes.
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.
