House in the Dunes

chris+frank.jpg

An architect and 3D animation specialist, Michał Szulik is the mastermind behind the House of Dunes project. The beautiful interior and exterior design of this home is a shining example of minimalism, using accent pieces such as walls and hardware to contrast the white negative space that dominates the home. Utilizing a black and white color scheme and reclaimed wood throughout, this home is brilliantly thought-out and decorated. And the most interesting part of this home? It is 100% computer-rendered and not the least bit real. Enjoy the video at the end of the blog which shows a rendered walkthrough of this lovely concept home.

DekoRatio Branding & Design Studio

chris+frank.jpg

Located in Budapest, Hungary, DekoRatio Branding & Design Studio is a mecca for interior design, epitomizing the intersection of influence and inspiration. From their basic identity to their sliding doors that cleverly change messaging written on the wall behind it, no stone was left unturned in this beautifully and brilliantly designed space.

The DekoRatio office not only provides an experience to its visitors, but also acts as a showroom for interior design. The space is divided into two parts in the angle of a "K": an industrial space and an all-white office space. This division speaks to the studio's ability to execute brand strategy and also to produce signs and prints.

The Current State of UX/UI Design

christopher+a+frank+ui.jpg

Today's consumer spends much of their time online, and as such, the importance of UX and UI design is ever-growing. Not so long ago, UX thinking was limited by the capabilities of the devices we used. Today, however, in a world where our devices capabilities' seem limitless, UX has begun to encompass something greater: front-end design, animation, and generally speaking, a higher level of UX thinking.

The following series of examples were designed by uixNinjaNischal MasandTushar SainiRafzin p and more. These mobile transitions and animations display the direction that UX thinking is headed, including micro-interactions, which the user may not notice directly but subtly enhance the user experience.

The Observatory

chris frank cfx st. louis

Amazing surrealist illustrations from artist/designer Anxo Vizcaíno that embody a vintage aesthetic remeniscnet of the 1980's visual landscape.

The first piece of this series was originally part of my collection of “experimental remixes”. Now it inspired me to create a whole collection of scenes set in the same atmosphere. I’m producing some limited fine-art prints soon.
— Anxo Vizcaíno
