Facebook Redesign - Cover

Facebook Redesign - by Roland Hidvegi

Facebook Redesign by Roland Hidvegi

Facebook is the second most used website and first social network in the world. It has shaped billions of lives, allowing people to stay connected with each other or to meet people you haven’t seen in ages. We have seen a lot of redesigns, but this one caught our attention for its minimalistic and clean look. Obviously, Facebook has a huge and strong team of Designers that works on dozens of projects, but it’s always interesting to see what other people can do to improve a product.

As Roland says –

In this Facebook Redesign I tried to modify some minor things to provide a more delightful experience to the users. The avatars changed to circles following the common pattern. I used the similar layout for the person and pages with a ratio based flexible grid system (2, 5, 3). Finally I used the fresh colours and updated the typefaces as well.

As Roland mentioned in his brief description, he worked on multiple UI elements to improve User Experience. He built a new set of icons which feature an outlined style rather than a filled one. In this way, he managed to make the content cleaner and lighter.
Regarding colors, Roland used bright tones, such as Green, Blue, Orange and Red to emphasize particular elements. He had a particular attention for the icons, transforming the current skeuomorphism-style set to a flat one. In this way, there is more consistency on the platform, also given by the grey-only set of icons in the left navigation bar.

The current Facebook design lacks of readability for the comment sections, because there aren’t real visual divisors between the author, comment and actions. Every element seems too cluttered, which makes the content difficult to analyze and read. Unfortunately, Roland didn’t try to resolve this issue. It could have been interesting to see his take on this situation.

In Conclusion

Roland did an awesome job  in redesigning Facebook. He improved a lot of elements and sections of the social network, but he covered only the surface of it. Again, it could have been interesting to see more UI elements and further studies of this redesign. For now, we can treat it as a successful visual improvement with some interesting UX suggestions.

A New Dropbox Redesign - Paper Project

A New Dropbox

A New Dropbox Redesign

With more than 500 Million users, it is one of the best platforms to use to share files with other people. Since its launch, it grew a lot, and it now has a strong Design team that support its products.

As they say –

In today’s workplace, people spend 61% of their time managing work rather than doing it. […]
We want to bring that 61% as close to zero as possible. So we’re building products that make it easier to find the information you need, stay up to date on projects, and work more seamlessly as a team. And today, we have the first of those products and features ready for you.
In January 2017, Dropbox’s Design team announced four completely new Product. They refreshed the Home Page, the web application and  launched two new Products.

A New

The new Dropbox redesign starts with a strong and bold statement. They are reinventing how teamwork works. But how? By introducing two new products. The first is Dropbox Paper, which is a smarter way of building ideas and thinking around a concept. The second is Smart Sync, which is a way to organize and synchronize your files directly on your desk.
Following along the website, it now shows five strong features about their products and how you can benefit from them. Illustrations support every statement, featuring an unique outlined and shaky style.
Obviously, they also took their time to improve the mobile version which features all the elements displayed on a single column layout.

A New Dropbox Web App

Dropbox’s Web Application now features an extremely clean and minimalistic look. It is actually impressive to see a so clean design on a real and functioning product. It features a full screen – fluid layout divided in three columns layout. The first one contains the main navigation bar. The second contains your actual files. The third contains all the tools that you need to start using Dropbox.
It features AtlasGrotesk as the main and only one font, supported by soft colors, like light blue, light purple and grey tones.

Smart Sync

This new feature allows people to organize and choose which files will be downloaded on your computer or kept on the cloud. It is going to be extremely useful when it comes to manage your machine’s storage. In fact, every file that you store on your desktop presents an icon. If it’s a green checkmark, the file has been loaded on both the cloud and your computer. If it’s a cloud icon, it means that the file will be available only with internet connection, so it will not be stored on your machine and available offline. I can see a relation with the new Cloud sync feature introduced by Apple, which basically works in a similar way, but obviously with Apple’s Cloud.

Dropbox Paper

This new feature allows users to collaborate, share ideas and think about a project. It is a sort of a Google Docs, Invision’s Boards, a scheduling tool and obviously a sharing platform. In fact, with this tool you can write content, share images, videos and any other embeddable content. You can also write comments and start a conversation. You can even schedule and organize your team, like you will normally do on softwares like Trello, Asana or Wrike.
Regarding the Design, the tool features with a minimalistic and clean style. In fact, there aren’t shadows, colors or lines that divide the content. The only visual divisor is determined by the negative space and text hierarchy. It features a different look compared to the established Dropdown style. In fact, there aren’t any blue tone, but the real king is the grey. In order to make the content pop-out, the main body features grey tones. Only authors names present strong colors, such as violet, orange and blue.
Project Cover are a real change in their Design style. In fact, now every project will have a cover image which features a creative way of using geometric shapes and bright colors.

In Conclusion

Dropbox’s Design team improved a lot of UI elements, sections and pages with this Dropbox redesign, but the real game-changer are the new products. With Smart Sync and Dropbox Paper, you can now build board, sketch ideas, organize content, synch files on your desktop and obviously share them with other people, all from the same place. Could it be the final move to outdistance Google Drive from the race?

COS Website Cover

COS. Website Design - by M2H Agency

COS Website Design

M2H Agency is a Moscow based agency which is building its name in the Design Industry for its style. In fact, they love to build websites with fluid layouts, which is in complete contrast to the world’s most use Bootstrap framework. They also enrich products with lots of animations, transitions and micro-interactions.

One of their last project was COS Website, which is a fashion brand for women. It features a minimalistic style, followed by a clean look. The absence of content is a key part for this website. In fact, it could be extremely easy for anyone to place a couple fonts on a page, but the end result will be like every other website out there. That’s where M2H Agency excel. They worked with the layout, featuring medium-small fonts rotated by 90 degrees and large images. In this way, they were able to let users focus on the real content. Less important elements, like product names and descriptions, were strategically placed in the corners of the pages.

How they described the project

COS (Collection of Style) is a fashion brand for women and men who want modern, functional and considered design. COS fashion collections are the essence of Scandinavian minimalism when general style is more important then hype trends. Our task was not only to refute the character and philosophy of the brand but also to create the unforgettable look describing COS’s approach to creation of fashionable clothes. We have sticked to functional, simple and straightforward design with monochromatic colors which enlarges and repeats the COS approach to design of clothes.

In Conclusion

As they specified in their project description, they used products that feature the Scandinavian Minimalism. Colors played a very important role too. In fact, monochromatic and soft tones are dominating products and the website’s look.
But at the end, what really makes the website stand out are the photographies. Model’s expressions, clothes’ style, the minimalism of the environment and even the scenes showed in videos create an unique atmosphere, very similar to a sci-fi movie.

The New York Times Redesign-Cover

The New York Times Redesign

The New York Times Redesign - by Flatstudio

The New York Times is one of the most influential source of news on the Planet.

Henry Raymond and George Jones founded the journal in New York in 1851. They would have never expected to see it grow so fast. Characterized by its “ancient” look, it features Cheltenham for its headlines and Imperial for its body. The constant use of serif fonts allowed the company to build a solid brand, not only by making it recognizable, but also making it credible. In fact, Designers use serif fonts – and in some cases even sans serif – to establish credibility and even trust in the reader. This is also one of the main reasons why the majority of Political Newspapers topics use them.

Flatstudio is a Creative Agency based in Lisbon, Portugal.
In the past couple weeks, they posted a series of Shots about the newspaper redesign. After one month, they released the full project on Behance and their Website.
In their redesign, they featured multiple studies of the website, spacing from the Layout, UX and also Colors.

The outdated layout hides important sections of the website.

The New York Times is filled with content where a user can consume the information. The number of types of content delivered is increasing every day. That’s why we designed a few different blocks which can form the content.

General Pages

We identified several types of information layout for this project. The main page has a 5-column grid. The editorial articles have a full-width layout, big images, and also a special content. The multimedia projects form the content in full-screen view.

Color Palette & Font Styling

While prototyping and choosing both colors and fonts we relied on the old newspapers and their layout. We tried also to choose the newspaper-like colors. The main task that we set was a combination of multimedia features with the ability to use the space properly. In fact, the more information on a square pixel the better it is.
Choosing the font is very important and we didn’t want to change the already established elements of the website.
The set of blocks, which we designed, work well together. Highlighting information and relying primarily on the content forming, we managed to get a good look and ergonomic design.

In Conclusion

Flatstudio did an awesome job in The New York Times Redesign project. In fact, they improved not only the UI, bringing a more modern look, but also the User Experience. It could be indeed a great upgrade to their current website, moving away from their cluttered look and feel.

Trello Redesign - Featured Image

Trello Redesign by Netguru

Trello Redesign - by Netguru

Trello. We love it. We hate it.

If you are a Designer, you must have tried it at least once in your entire life. In fact, Trello is one of the most popular tools for sharing and managing projects.

Lately, it has been on the front page of all the major newspapers thank to its new “dad”. Yes, Trello is joining a new family, more specifically Atlassian’s family.
The recent acquisition by Atlassian for 425 Millions shaked the Design community. Similarly to what Instagram’s new logo caused, we now have responses. A lot of Designers and Influencers spoke about this change and about Trello’s future, but what really caught our attention was Netguru’s Trello redesign.

Netguru’s Motivation

We love Trello at Netguru. Atlassian’s recent acquisition of Trello motivated us to have a shot at redesigning Trello’s visual identity. It’s something we’ve always wanted to do – make Trello a little bit slicker. We are well aware that a comprehensive redesign would consists on a host of different factors: business objectives, user needs defined as a result of data analysis, and so on. We were not aiming at a total overhaul of Trello – we focused exclusively on Trello’s visual experience, bearing in mind all the limitations of such approach.

As they specified, their Trello’s redesign is focusing on the UI and Aesthetic side rather than the UX.
Nonetheless, as we already said in the 10 Best Website & Web Design of December, Netguru is an extremely talented agency based in Poland, and we couldn’t expect anything less than that from them.

Both the actual Design and the presentation are spectacular, featuring a minimalistic and super-clean look. White is the dominant color, followed by Blue, Yellow and Red for all the other UI elements.

Netguru’s redesign spaces from Colors, Icons and screes. Some of them includes Boards, Calendar, Summary, Pop-ups and Login forms.

Best Mobile UI UX Design Inspiration of December

Best Mobile UI UX Design of December 2016

Best Mobile UI UX Design of December 2016 is a collection of some of the best UI and also UX Design.

This month, a lot of agencies, freelancers and also independent designers produced a lot of quality content. They pushed boundaries while building incredible UI and UX solutions and experiences for users. Almost all of these UI UX Designs are only concepts, but because creators worked without any limitation, they were able to build quality content and push their creativity to the maximum level.
Let’s get inspired!

Home Kit App Concept & Prototype – Best Mobile UI UX Design of December 2016

Home Kit is a concept of an application that allows people to manage their home. The application features a clean and minimalistic look, with also a great use of photographies. This prototype stand out among others for its UX. The clean look makes the app simpler and even easier to use than other competitors on the market. While other peers may have used a material design or even more conservative style, Jaewoong worked with iconography and slides to build the navigation. As a result, users are able to reach a specific setting in just a few taps.
Designer: Jaewoong You

Design Blog (Mobile) Sneak Peek – Best Mobile UI UX Design of December 2016

This Design Blog concept is made specifically for mobile devices. By using all the best practices, it allows users to read articles and even discover new content.
This concept is divided in three main screens. The first screen features a big featured image, a headline right underneath and even more content included inside compressed tabs. Even if this UX solution doesn’t allow users to instantly read content, it allows them to discover all the possible categories available, and consequently to choose only their favorites. Thank to the use of negative space, the second screen features a big headline that “visually” cover the entire first half of the device, consequently giving importance to the title. The bottom part of the screen is covered by four squares, with alternated images and soft-toned colored boxes containing article’s titles and dates. The last screen features an opened article which features an interesting slide containing pictures. While other blogs show images piled on top of each other, this gallery style represents a smart way to show multiple images. Because of that, the structure doesn’t force users to scroll by the pictures to continue to read the content.
Designer: Matteo Pasuto

To-Do App – Best Mobile UI UX Design of December 2016

One of the most used type of mobile applications on the planet are To-Do Apps. A lot of people write tasks and grocery lists. Why? Because people prefer phones rather than post-it. The cleanliness of the User Interface caught our attention. Soft tones combined with a great font made the interface extremely clean and intuitive. Also, the navigation is as basic as it can be, positioned at the bottom of the screen. Obviously, the application contains a lot of complex interfaces, such as the editing task screen. From here, users are able to add a lot of informations and details about a task. If that concept will ever be built, it could be indeed one of the brightest ways to track your tasks through your phone.
Designer: Martin Strba

Article Cards Alternate – Best Mobile UI UX Design of December 2016

Another great Blog UI UX Design that has been included in the Mobile UI UX Collection of December. This Design is extremely beautiful but also extremely simple. You can actually count only 5 elements per widget, which are the Photo, Title, Description, divisor icon and a small caption. Who says that this interface is so simple that anyone could do it, is probably lying. To build a great yet simple card needs superb skills to balance all the elements, in addition to the ability to choose the right font, icon and photo.
Designer: Oliur

Make Steak Application – Best Mobile UI UX Design of December 2016

We have analyzed the most important aspects of cooking and chose only necessary functions. Big list of various recipes, smart timer, ability to order right from the app, social part, discount program, learning opportunity. All of those things in one app – MAKE STEAK. This mobile application has an interesting job. While other peers allow users to choose and see recipes that can be used to cook (obviously) steaks, this application allows people to even get discounts and learning opportunities. Despite the modern look and feel, the app is able to convey the purpose of the app with a few elements. Red tones, great iconography and even a curated set of illustrations are leading the entire look and feel of the app.
Designer: Aleksey Stiks

Hello Dribbble – Best Mobile UI UX Design of December 2016

This is my first shot on dribbble. Hope you like it.
I am so happy to be here, I waited this moment for a long time… “
We all have been there. Finally someone sent you a Dribbble Invite. You are finally able to publish your awesome yet undiscovered designs on one of the major UI UX platforms in the world. It really is a joy to be able to publish your work on Dribbble, and for that reason you have to carefully choose only your best shots, and “Hello Dribbble” by Huang is one of them.
Designer: Huang

Gift Card Mweb Version 1.0 – Best Mobile UI UX Design of December 2016

We find this App Design extremely interesting, because it looks and feel like an app, but on the other side it looks like a mobile version of a website. In the first screen, you can actually see a browser’s domain search box. Nevertheless, the combination of background illustrations with the main card’s content makes it one of the most brilliant UI UX designs of this month.
Agency: Headout Inc.
Designer: Ranjith Alingal

Car control mobile app – Best Mobile UI UX Design of December 2016

In the card industry, UI UX Design is still years behind web and mobile technology and trends. Only Tesla seems to be able to keep up its UI UX game with a modern look, which is exactly what the company wants to show. Is that design a good step forward for its industry? Absolutely yes. The design features a dark Material Design UI with a clear horizontal card navigation. On every card, you can control their various statistics, variables and informations about their cars. You can even set your wheels’ pressure and LED Lights color (which is probably illegal). Is that the future of UI UX design in the car industry?
Agency: Awesomed

PingBing – Best Mobile UI UX Design of December 2016

PingBing is a chat mobile application that allows people to “ping” and “chat” with friends or even total strangers that are nearby your position. Despite the other chat applications, with PingBing you are not allowed to send common written messages, but instead you can only send vocal messages. The application features a clean and modern UI, enriched by a circular and roundish style, but the UX is the real king here. To navigate through your chats, you have to spin a wheel that shows your friend’s pictures and their physical distance. Could that be a step towards a less-cold, only written form of communication?
Designer: Any Harutyunyan
