Interaction Design & UI/UX of Mailcube MacOS App

Interaction Design & UI/UX of Mailcube MacOS App

Let’s take a look at this interaction design & UI/UX for a MacOs app named Mailcube, behind the app we have the team over Significa that believed that the email is not dead and it’s all about how you treat this relationship. Right off the bat, you are introduce to what they called: faces where you can customize as you pleased through faces (categories) like messages, contacts, attachments and more. What I liked the most is the fact that your notifications are filtered and you can organize your emails by dragging a cube (kind of like creating a channel on Slack). You can join their private beta here.

Behind this design, we have the work from Significa, a creative studio based in Porto, Portugal. Currently focusing their work into interaction design and brand development. You should definitely see their motto through their work and it’s about good design thinking that can answer almost any question and solve most problems.

Even though many of us have declared email dead, it’s up to all of us to breathe new life into it. Let’s face it: you’re not going to stop using email, so, instead, why not work on the relationship?

1 Min Illustrator & Photoshop Tutorials by Adobe Creative Cloud

1 Min Illustrator & Photoshop Tutorials by Adobe Creative Cloud

When we started Abduzeedo we focused a lot on design tutorials, especially Photoshop tutorials. Later we started adding more tools like Illustrator, Pixelmator and others. That was 10 years ago and there weren’t many resources where people could find content on those subjects. Nowadays, it’s much easier, you can find Photoshop training videos, Illustrator from well-known professionals, including the mighty folks over at Adobe, the mastermind behind the most popular design software in the world. Today, I noticed that they have an amazing Youtube channel called Adobe Creative Cloud and they have already shared some very useful videos with Illustrator and Photoshop tutorials. 

The quality of the videos is incredible, they are short, 1 minute walkthroughs explaining interesting techniques to create 3D typography, double exposure effects, composite effects. Everything is really well done. I think they made all the other tutorials sort of obsolete after that. Below you can see the videos.

Interaction Design & UI/UX of the Ecook App Concept

Interaction Design & UI/UX of the Ecook App Concept

Let’s share our first interaction design project this week of a cooking app concept named: Ecook. Designed by Ha Truong, we are approached with an app that can help you cook more through daily menus and suggestions depending on the weather or whatnot. What’s cool about this concept is the integration of watching what famous chefs are sharing as recipes, on the other hand I really liked this user flow from the shopping list to the actual cooking. Check it out!

Behind this concept, we are sharing the work from Ha Truong who is a designer based in Hanoi, Vietnam. He is shifting his work lately into interaction design, you get to experience his thinking through his concepts and ideas that are pretty great. Definitely worth following on Behance.

Ecook is an application that helps users find and share recipes with the community. In addition, Ecook has the ability to suggest daily menus based on the current time and weather, helping users find and choose the most suitable and the best food. You can plan to cook delicious meals for your family with delicious dishes from ecook. Ecook members can watch famous chefs cook food or watch them share great recipes. Cooking is easier and more interesting with Ecook.

Fauxsaics: a Series of Typographic Mosaic Illustrations

Fauxsaics: a Series of Typographic Mosaic Illustrations

We are sharing a typographic series that just makes you go Wow! just by its splendid concept and even more about the execution. Have you ever took a picture of a mosaic tile composition and try to position the shot with your shoes? I know I did! That’s basically the concept behind Fauxsaics , a series of typographic mosaic illustrations designed by New York-based designer Nicholas Misani. What I love about this series is not only there’s a good amount of work in the typography, there’s also even more details to the mosaic as well. These are the kind of projects we love seeing on Abduzeedo!

Behind this fun series is the stunning work from Nicholas Misani who is a designer based in New York, USA. Passionate about typography and calligraphy; he’s also working at Louise Fili Ltd as a senior designer. A place where he gets and as I quote: “create quintessentially Italian, historically-inspired design and lettering every day”.

Fauxsaics are lettering-based, mosaic illustrations where the form is dictated by the limitations of traditional mosaic technique.

The Contemplative Artworks of Elicia Edijanto

The Contemplative Artworks of Elicia Edijanto

One thing I love about art is that an illustration is like a window into an artist’s mind, soul, or whatever you might call it. Some artworks and paintings are super happy, with bright, colorful details right at your face. Some others express deep meaning through fewer elements and simpler colors.

Elicia Edijanto is one of those artists that tell us a lot through her artworks. From Jakarta, Indonesia, she comes up with these beautiful illustrations that are so contemplative that it might reach the deepest corner of one’s soul and have an effect on it. This is the kind of art that makes you trip, wonder, dream, all at once, wherever you are. Something very powerful indeed… well, some might say that art is a weapon of mass destruction. Destruction of an ugly, lifeless world. Let there be art, let there be more of Elicia’s beautiful mind.

Elicia’s artworks

For more of Elicia’s artworks, please visit her personal website, Instagram or portfolio at Behance! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! Cheers. 😉
