Believing in your own skills and talent is one step of being ahead of yourself. All the other stuff that makes you great? Your set of unique skills that help you create amazing things. Inspiration lists are among them. They keep you updated on what’s new and provide you with opportunities to come up with fresh ideas. We hope this one by Milind Chaskar, Webonise Sr. UI/UX designer, does the same to you. Keep being inspired.
We believe great work starts with great proposals. Beagle is just the right tool for it - a platform for creating better business proposals. It provides a clean environment for the task. It’s free from any distraction and minimalist, something that will encourage anyone building a comprehensive business plan to focus. Interactions and user engagements on the site are also noteworthy as well as the smooth and eye-catching animations you’ll stumble upon every once in a while.
When you say e-commerce, people expect to see a website with multiple pages showing off many products and services. But Nuabikes is not like any other e-commerce site. It may potentially be the only one-pager e-commerce site I’ve ever come across. You might assume that they made that possible by keeping everything simple and minimalistic, but you’re in for a surprise. Despite being a one-pager website, it provides comprehensive information about their products. Furthermore, the product photography is superb - made me love cycling even more!
“30 species, 30 pieces.” In Pieces is a CSS-based interactive exhibition of 30 of the world’s most interesting, but unfortunately endangered, species - their survival laying literally, in pieces.
It’s well-designed and does a phenomenal job at advocating for the conservation of animal life throughout the world. The site is highly interactive, surprisingly appealing and easy to navigate, all made possible through the use of CSS and HTML 5.
Their ingenious way of using origami to present each species made transitions especially entertaining. Let’s also not forget to mention the creative use of graphs to illustrate, otherwise boring, statistical data related to each endangered animal.
Today, icons play a major role in website design and development. The trend is to focus on simple and intuitive icons. Icons are often thought to be negligible details, something that has no direct impact on users. But the contrary is true; icons have a significant influence on user behavior They can either motivate or discourage users, depending on the specific message. Hence, here are three questions you need to ask yourself before you start creating an icon collection according to Vincent Le Moign :
1. What style do you want for your icons?
2. Who do you create these icons for?
3. What are the constraints?
Karoline is a graphic designer located in Oslo, Norway. “60 Logos in 60 Days” is one of her projects where she created a logo each day for 60 consecutive days. The quality of each and every one of these logos? Outstanding. The project was self-promotion, which is admirable, but the fact that it only took her one hour to finish a logo each day impressed me even more.

“Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it's really how it works.”
Looking back, even I was surprised that I’ve been a User Experience and User Interface Designer here at Webonise for 5 years already! It’s definitely true when they say that time passes by so fast when you love what you do. I have worked on more than 150 projects with Webonise, and these projects included Information Architecture, User Interface Design, Visual Design, User Testing and Graphic Design to name a few. However, the fields that I like working with the most are Design Research, Web Application Design, Mobile Application Design, Product Application/User Interface Design, Windows 8 Apps, iOS7 Design, I-phone Apps, Android Apps, Information Architecture and Game Design.
