App Design: inMuseum Experience App

App Design: inMuseum Experience App AoiroStudio Jan 16, 2017 This Weekend, I was able to enjoy a free admission at the MBAM (Musée des Beaux Arts de Montréal) and go through its art exhibits filled with beautiful pieces. During my walk, I thought about my own experience and how we can enhance it especially knowing with the possibilities of technology nowadays. We are featuring a project with Ekrem Ates and Muzaffer Akay and their inMuseum App. What I adore the most about this project is not the UI but the part where they show the phase beyond the structure of the experience. I also liked their approach of making the UI based on cards for responsiveness, also with usability and mobile gestures. Published on Behance  by Ekrem Ates and Muzaffer Akay who are designers based in Istanbul, Turkey. Superb work about what they have done on making inMuseum app where you can facilitate your own experience and mostly at your own pace. Credits Ekrem Ates Muzaffer Akay app design ui design UI/UX

She was very kind to share with us a little bit of her illustration process from the main goal of the project, to sketches to the final design.

Immigration is the heart of this land and I wanted to do what little I can to protect it. What started as a way cope turned into something that I hope will help support the American Civil Liberties Union. I will donate all profits from the sale of this piece to the ACLU. Sketches Like all my concept sketches, this is a nearly indecipherable color pencil drawing. I knew I wanted to feature the Statue of Liberty because of my own mother’s love for… Read More»

Illustration: The Dark Knight Trilogy by Krzysztof Domaradzki

Illustration: The Dark Knight Trilogy by Krzysztof Domaradzki AoiroStudio Jan 18, 2017 We are sharing an illustration poster series about Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy by Krzysztof Domaradzki. I have been a huge fan of this trilogy because it’s a modern take of what Batman could have been in our times. With Christopher Nolan genius direction, it’s a trilogy that was truly memorable filled with so many great moments of cinematography. Along those lines, Krzysztof’s work on this illustration sets the tone right with its monochromatic colour scheme. Krzysztof Domaradzki  is a talented artist, designer and illustrator based in Poznań, Poland. We’ve featured his work before on Abduzeedo and it has always been a stunning combination of various mediums of drawing, typography, graphic design and of course illustration. In his Words The concept stage was a long and exhausting process. I knew from the very start that I wanted to keep the trilogy black and white (I think that the monochromatic color scheme really fits the character and the dark, moody tone of Nolan’s films ). It took several attempts to find the right balance between the story and the characters. I was first approached in 2014 to do a… Read More»

Everyday Miniature life by Tatsuya Tanaka

Everyday Miniature life by Tatsuya Tanaka GisMullr Jan 19, 2017 Do you like photography and miniature scenes? You have come to the right place. And you will certainly enjoy Japanese artist Tatsuya Tanaka’s work. He creates inspiring and intricate everyday life scenes in a miniature world. A place where broccoli becomes a huge tree. A world where tiny men operate sushi trains and much more. From skiing to meetings, swimming in a guitar to food markets, the artist has an unique style to portray daily things. Since 2011 Tatsuya has an ongoing project called Miniature Calendar. Miniature Calendar is a project where he portrays everyday life scenes depicted in diorama style.

Design Books: Suggestions for the New Year

Design Books: Suggestions for the New Year abduzeedo Jan 10, 2017 This week is the second or first, in my case, week of work in 2017. With every new year there’s a lot of resolutions made, areas that we want to improve or things we want to change. I feel that for me I want just to focus on less and the practice of minimalism. For that reason I am also trying to focus more on design books rather than just online. I am trying to savor the information a bit more instead of gobbling up everything I might think will be inspiring or useful. Most of the time that ends up not being the case, but just the fear of missing out, resulting in a pile of articles to read or links that, without context, have little to no value. So, for this post I will highlight a few design books that are on my list for 2017. Some I have already in my library, others I might purchase along the way. The books are about design, branding, photography, interface and topics that we try to cover here on the blog.

That’s because too often, business owners try to be like everyone else when, in reality, being successful regarding making a dent in the industry you are in means standing out. Here are examples of brands that did things differently and are now experiencing the payoffs of their strategies.

Interaction Design: Fangry Food Mobile App

Interaction Design: Fangry Food Mobile App AoiroStudio Jan 09, 2017 We would like to share this interesting project of an app called: Fangry Food, it is a cooking app with the geniality of telling the app what’s in your fridge so they can come up with a range of recipes depending on the difficulty, popularity, calories and etc. It’s quite a great idea actually and I do feel that the interaction design behind the app is intuitive and easy-to-follow. I have some questions raising up while scanning this project like how mostly the backend can respond to all the variety of elements of food that exist for example or how does it come up with different cooking steps depending on your ingredients. I loved the detail of having the button: Order Pizza, that was hilarious. Artkai Design Studio  is a studio based in Kyiv, Ukraine. With a talented team of designers, creative director and UI/UX, it’s really great to see them creating and making something quite useful for our quick daily routines full of things where sometimes food comes last.
