Web Design Inspiration: Carloct.com

It’s that time of the year that I am thinking about redesigning both my personal website and the blog. With this phase comes a lot of browsing thru inspiration examples of web design. Some are new, some are old but it’s always nice to see what it’s out there. I know that I am also stuck to simple, black and white, editorial design-like style. No neo-skeuomorphism just yet.

Simplicity in Design at its best with B+W

Simplicity is the biggest challenge for any designer. Well, at least it’s for me as I constantly battle to find ways to reduce elements, colors and pretty much anything without sacrificing usability. That’s why it’s difficult, however for some people it seems a bit easier, or they make it look easier, which highlights their talent.

Motion Design for the Comprehensive Pixel 4 Visual System

I own an iPhone 11 Pro and the Pixel 4 XL and I have to say. Pause here, the Pixel 4 is much nicer from the industrial design point of view than the iPhone. I am talking about just the way that it feels when holding. There's something about the black rails, the pop of color of the white one and the simplicity that makes it especial.

Is this really coming back? UI Design Trends

We posted about this new trend a month or so ago, however it seems that it’s really picking up steam on sites like Dribbble. With more and more people sharing snippets of working exploring this style it makes me wonder, is the skeuomorphism or as we call it now, the neo-skeuomorphism coming back?
