The Mac operating system is used by millions on laptops and iMacs around the world. Each program for OS X uses an app icon which can be resized in the dock(among other locations). This means icon designers need to create multiple icon sizes for each OS X application. The level of detail is often exquisite and these icons are nothing short of a masterpiece.
This gallery contains 35 Mac OS X app icons created by designers on Dribbble. Many of these apps have gotten published onto the App Store, while others were just created for practice. A few icons even include a free PSD download if you’re into that kinda thing. But regardless of your operating system these icons are truly exceptional and easy to appreciate from a designer’s point of view.

Sometimes designers make better redesigns of the product than the original products are. Let’s talk about apps. In the internet we can found thousands of great examples when redesigned icon, logo or the whole design looks much better than original one. Some of designers just like to test their skills, others are creating designs and expecting for new job opportunity.
In this collection you will find some amazing redesigns of your favorite apps like Facebook, Viber, Instagram and others. All of the redesigns was taken from most crowded home of designers Dribbble.
Artists on Dribbble like to publish their user experience ideas in the form of GIF animations. These interfaces are typically designed in Photoshop and then ported into After Effects for polishing. iPhone apps are the most common interfaces with a wide range of generic animated effects.
Although many of these designs have been created for the iPhone, most effects can be transferred onto any smartphone or tablet device. I’ve included the full GIF animation for each interface along with a link back to the original Dribbble shot. If you have any other unique or interesting UI/UX animations feel free to share with us in the comments section.
As the saying goes, you only get one chance to make a first impression. Your landing page may be the first thing potential customers encounter when they hear about you, your company or your product, and so it’s absolutely critical. This is especially true if you’re a startup or a small business, where often you don’t get a second chance.
Some companies do a truly phenomenal job with their landing pages. A landing page that’s been crafted beautifully, is uncluttered and that helps to show off the product or service well can reflect extremely well on the brand that it’s for.

Twitter Bootstrap has been around for a few years gaining a lot of momentum. Designers love the simple interface along with the many pre-built JS components.

Bootstrap is naturally responsive with options to create fixed-width layouts, too.
This gallery includes 30 brilliant website templates created using Twitter Bootstrap. Many are free to download while others can be purchased from premium marketplaces. Bootstrap themes are much cheaper than CMS themes because there is no backend. Yet even the free examples are great learning tools.
I’ve been a fan of icon design for years. Much like how a logo represents the tone and personality of a company, an icon represents a program or app. Both make use of a tiny canvas size and often have a lot to say with little space to say it.
Ever since iPhone apps started picking up traction, icon design has improved more and more. With time, designers and developers have been able to practice creating a beautiful, stylish and slick icon that suits the device it’s on, and looks great at high resolution and when it’s a tiny icon on a home screen.
It’s important to mention that it’s remarkably challenging to create an icon that looks good – it can take an extraordinary amount of work and skill to create something that looks simple, and the more complex a design, the more talent is required.
