You know how some people engrave their company’s name into live cattle? Although this may not be your idea of branding it seems to denote the same ideology. A company’s brand should be easily recognizable and help to label a product or service. Yet to create something so recognizable would require a lot of study and practice. It might be helpful if you deconstruct existing brands to study what works and what doesn’t.

In this post I’ve organized a handful of beautiful logos with unique typographic styles for individual & company branding.

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. If you put all of your attention and focus into the product, but not into the landing page, then it can be hard to get the sales that you may otherwise deserve.
I wanted to write a post that showcased some of my favourite fresh, interesting and bold landing page designs that I think do a great job at putting the product in the spotlight. All of these examples make use of beautiful, creative design to show off the product, and I hope that this collection gives you some ideas around improvements you could make to your own landing pages. If you know of any other examples of stylish, bold and creative landing page designs, I’d love to hear about them in the comments section below.
