Shopping For: Feminine Flourish

It’s official, after reviewing the runways of both Spring and Fall, 2017 is the year for flirty and feminine details. Think ruffles and lace, micro-florals and bows found on everything from denim and dresses to jewelry and accessories. Fortunately, even if this is something you’d typically turn away from, you can decide how much you want to embrace the trend as designers are both pulling out all the stops for a head to toe look (like Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini, Luisa Beccaria and Sachin and Babi) or utilizing these flourishes in simple inserts and trims as seen by Delpozo, Leal Daccarat and Sally LaPointe. No matter what your aesthetic, make this trend your own and use our favorite pieces as inspiration in the slideshow above! Read More

Suit Up for the Holidays

Even though we’re in the middle of Winter, the holiday season is always known as a time for shorter hemlines, tight silhouettes and embellished, bedazzled everything. Whether it’s an office party or New Year’s Eve, a sparkly little number is usually the easy fallback for occasion-wear. This year, we’re turning our noses up at this standby and showing how sexy, flattering and (let’s be honest) more seasonally appropriate a beautifully tailored suit can be. Plus, you can re-wear any of these pieces in a multitude of ways for long after New Year’s Day. From being corporate appropriate in Erdem or Joseph to ultra chic and feminine in Carolina Herrera or party ready in Dolce & Gabbana and Roberto Cavalli, … Read More

The Simple Yet Complicated Mobile UI List Design

Designing an app may seem easy from far far away, but when you actually get to start imagining and sketching it, things get complicated. You ask yourself a lot of questions and immediately there’s doubt and the design process doesn’t look that simple anymore. What at first seemed easy started to get really difficult because you won’t be able to make a choice to design a button a certain way or another. Even a simple item as a user interface list will start to get complicated and you won’t decide on the design of a bullet, thumbnail or a separator line. My hope is that this article with UI list design examples will help you decide and will be an inspiration for when … Read More

If you’ve wasted time on 99designs, sure, it may seem easy to design one, but it’s a little bit harder to create one that is actually successful and appreciated by fellow logo designers as well as clients and customers.

Creative WordPress Portfolio Designs

The age of simple portfolios that are similar to each other is gone. Nowadays WordPress portfolios are really creative and are taking advantage of the web technologies that are available at the moment. Another thing that is influencing designers are the current design trends and this is why most designers are migrating partially or fully to flat design. The web design community and its style of creating websites are evolving and this is why a lot of sites are based on different conceptions than the ones that were designed a few years back. Now designers use a lot of white space, aren’t afraid of big typography and are not sticking to the idea that everything must be located above the fold. Read More

Some Of The Best Kinetic Typography Examples

Kinetic typography, literally meaning moving text, is a motion graphics technique that manipulates the text and displays it dynamically on the screen in such a way to express an idea or emotion. The first time I wanted to do this article there were only 10 or 15 kinetic typography examples from which to choose from. It was quite new among designers and not that popular. However, having past some time since then, a lot of things have changed. For starters, there was a boom in kinetic typography tutorials especially for After Effects which made things easier for people who wanted to create this interesting type of motion graphics videos. And as always, it is enough to teach a few people something and they’ll take it to the next … Read More
