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 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?
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.
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.
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.
Concept projects are always fun, there’s no doubt about that statement. We can explore our creativity without much constraints and that helps us to learn new things that might be or not useful in the future. When I saw the amazing web design project for a concept design for Rock in Rio shared by Set Sargsyan I knew I would have to share it. Visually speaking I think it’s wonderful. There are so many things done to make it look more editorial, some of those I personally tried on the Abduzeedo design without much success.
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.

Set Sargsyan shared the UI/UX website redesign concept for the fashion brand. The main goal is to show that the existing structure and interface can be more friendly and fresh for the users.
Tran Mau Tri Tam is a designer from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam with a really cool portfolio of web design projects. For this post I would like to feature some of those projects that has inspired me during the process of redesigning Abduzeedo. In addition to the beautiful visuals I like that Tran also explores motion design, some times with transitions or just way the scroll would work and details like that.
Hannes Ahremark is a designer running Studio Ahremar, a design studio based in Gothenburg, Sweden, aiming to create sophisticated design solutions with conceptual depth and contemporary visuals. Based on the project that Hannes shared on Behance you can attest to how much they kept their goal to deliver truly awesome products, in this case a brand identity and responsive website for Limitato, a fashion brand that endeavors to merge the world of fashion with the art world.
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.
Giga Tamarasvili is a designer based in Tbilisi, Georgia and he has been sharing some very inspiring web design projects on his Dribbble profile. They all feature a very simple and highly editorial style. There's a great typography contrast, which helps with the hierarchy of the page as well as an always excellent imagery selection. I particularly like the style of his work, it seems to be what I call the new trend in web design.
We are taking a look at this web design project by Dops Digital, a studio based in Lviv, Ukraine. This featured 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!
I started my design career 20+ years ago and back in those days the digital design community was in its infancy and with that it was difficult to find resources of all kinds. Fast forward to today and we can see a thriving community with an unimaginable, or I dare say, unlimited amount of resources. From typefaces, stock photography, tools, articles and UI Kits, whatever you need to start a project you have it. Here’s a great example, the Kalli UI kit for the amazing people over at UI8.
Efir Media shared on their Behance, a series of Web & UI layouts to showcase their skills and how much efforts they put into their projects. And of course, it's inspirational especially on the part with the animated transitions. They showcase a different kind of variety of projects from a full web experience to a responsive design.

Friday used to be the day of our web design round up. That was quite a long time, before the mobile first revolution took over. I am still a fan of web despite the fact the only design project for the web I work on is this blog I am writing right now. However I really have fun and get inspired when I see great projects like this one I want to share today. It's for the Parc Naturel Loire-Anjou Touraine and it was created and shared by Michael Berger.
The kind folks from Webflow have just released their kickass and free comprehensive course that teaches you how to succeed as a freelance web designer. It doesn't stop there, it's going all the way from first of all 'getting the clients', 'proposal research', 'pricing your work' and a lot more.
Marvin Schwaibold redesigned the Hochburg website in collaboration with Fabian Schmutzer, Florian Boyd and Baptiste Briel. The goal was to take their amazing work and give it an interactive environment in which the cases would thrive, entice users, build up excitement and surprise while keeping simplicity and usability in mind. The outcome was a bold and simple structured website that showcases Hochburg's eye for detail and vision when it comes to corporate graphic design.
