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?
We would like to share the work of Andreas Leah who is an interaction designer based in New York, USA. He shared on his Behance for Iceberg Hotels in Iceland. He worked on the brand identity, graphic design and web design which is pretty fantastic and one hell of a project to take on. Plus the client is located in the stunning and beautiful country of Iceland.
Just got back from Singapore after a 5-week traveling over Asia including Japan. When I was in SG, I was at some point in need of some cash, so I used one of their ATM machines. This experience got me curious about their user experience approach that banks and users are having in regards to money. After a little surfing, I have found a concept for OCBC Personal Banking. Designed by a UI/UX designer from Moscow, Russian Federation named Alexander Lygin.
A concept from designers Artur Konariev and John Jackson who worked on a social portal called: Millennials. A networking platform where users will be able to connect and collaborate to achieve greatness through exchanges and more. From the UI standpoint, I wish there was more differentiated through the different levels of communication on the web design, overall it looks great. Would you use another social platform? Or seeing smaller integrations inside a bigger platform like Facebook.
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.
Broklin Onjei shared a beautiful web design project on Behance. Using three different vibrant colours to define a creative agency approach to design and a unique monogram logo made of e (evolve) + c (creative) to lift up the brand name.
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.
With all the companies talking and merging about UI/UX design, web experiences are now rocking a certain standard in terms of what's "good practices" for your users. That being said, lots of sites are starting to show a similar look and feel in terms of UI. Let's take a look at the work of Leo Natsume, a creative designer based in beautiful Porto Alegre, Brazil. The illustrations he worked for GZH website are down-right beautiful and somehow shares a meaning.
Lucas Olsson shared a really cool web design concept for the Swedish brand Sandqvist. There are a lot of things to love about this project, I would highlight the minimalist look with excellent typography and of course the black and white theme. As you probably already know, I am a fan of that look and have been trying to explore it here for Abduzeedo. Another awesome thing about this project is that Lucas went beyond mocks and created a fully working and responsive prototype using Webflow.
We are taking a look at this web design project by Dops Digital, a studio based in Lviv, Ukraine. Their latest 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!
