Behance Material Design Concept
Google’s Material Design is one of the most influential visual philosophies in design. This visual language outlines how apps should look and work on mobile devices and designers Mushfiqul Islam and Abdullah Al Mamun took a stab with the material design concept on Behance.
The concept takes Behance app with extensive layering that creates a single, unified experience that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. The adaptation of typography, grids, colour and iconography helps drive the visuals to be bolder and more graphical that actually brings out the intention of Behance that showcases best designs.

LinkedIn Black Redesign Concept
Have you ever imagine LinkedIn with a black background? Maybe you have imagined it to have some sort of night mode but here’s a fascinating LinkedIn concept that features a black background with a complete interface redesign.
The fundamental interface is still there to be seen but the concept uncluttered LinkedIn to give it a cleaner interface uplift. On top of that, I love how the experience is arranged horizontally and thus the viewer can have the option to select the experience he/she would like to know.Check It Out
Yelp Redesign Concept
- “Nearby” and “Search” are almost sharing the same flow.
- In “Action” flow, after the user chooses an action option, she has to search the restaurant again, just like “Search” tab.
Also, based on the preliminary analysis and user interviews, the duo came out with 4 main features that will enhance the user experience — search, feed, collections, and profile.
- Search — A combination of “nearby” and “search” tab.
- Feed — Activity tab is now feed, fuel with relative info.
- Collections — Bookmarked places. It was hidden in the current version but it should be placed more prominently.
- My Page — Social media like user page.
National Geographic Website Redesign
Berlin-based designer Otto Prangishvili took a stab at redesigning National Geographic homepage. The original homepage that features just the latest news is given a complete redesign and is now covering all the important sections — news, videos, photography and magazines.
The design is clean and simple, especially how he animated the yellow frame through the page. The sequencing is definitely something that National Geographic can take heed on.

Pow Wow Web Redesign
Pow wow as an interactive calendar that allows you to coordinate appointments is pretty straightforward but still a bit of a mouthful to explain. The original homepage essentially relied on long paragraphs of text and screenshots to do the explaining and this kind of approach is obsolete at this day as people do more skimming than actual reading.
Thus the redesign approach is to figure out a way to convey what pow wow does immediately and visually, with little to no reading required. With the mascot in place, using illustrated elements and icons kinda put the whole design concept in place. The final homepage uses animation to bring these elements to life and illustrate the idea of pow wow in action. Without a word, you can start to see how pow wow makes appointments easy and keeps your schedule under control.Check It Out
Pow Wow Rebrand
Pow Wow is a product of Viget for anywho who needed an easier way to coordinate appointments. It is a tool that allows you to create a calendar with blocks of time when you’re available and then send it out to everyone you have to meet with and they can pick and choose from your time blocks and add themselves to the schedule accordingly.
The complete revamp pow wow brand occurs on the logo with bolder and cuter fonts. The new pow wow should look and feel lovable and what can be more lovable than a cute animal mascot. For web-based companies who have no tangilble product that exists in the real world, a mascot grounds the brand and gives users something concrete to connect to. Thus the pow wow the pup. Pow wow the put is used throughout the site and he explains features, gives the tool a personal voice when it’s needed, and even dresses up to represent different audiences.

A.P.C Redesign Concept
A.P.C is an online apparel shop based in Canada and US. Known for its simplicity, the homepage is designed with a whole lot of white space and masonry layout containing the main categories of the site. Designer Mykolas Vaitiekunas gives the site an uplift with the idea of showcasing featured products as well as giving each category a call-to-action to further enhance the user experience of an e-commerce.
One may think that the whole simplicity of the brand and design of their garments should rhyme with a minimal website but I personally think that users should be guided in their journey to make their purchase through call-to-actions and featured garments.

Facebook as a Startup Concept
A rather interesting concept if Facebook is started in 2015 as a startup. Most probably the landing page will be using a responsive bootstrap theme with tons of selling points like:
- A good headline to grab attention.
- A prominent call to action.
- Tell users what Facebook does clearly.
- Tell users the benefits of joining Facebook.
- Add credibility with testimonials and features.
- Lead users to features section.
- Last but not least, bringing users to download the Android and iOS apps.
HP Edgier Redesigned Logo
The latest and probably the thinnest lap top flagship by HP — Spectre 13 out-designed its peers not only on the cutting edge design and functionality but also on the new and minimalist logo. Compared to last year’s Spectre x360 that had the full “Hewlett-Packard” written out, the new 13-inch model has just four minimalist slashes making up the “HP” wordmark.
This very same mark first surfaced in a 2011 brand redesign study released by Moving Brands when HP was on a mission to rediscover its identity and express it better through a redesign of its logo and visual assets back in 2008. Although the redesign project was discontinued, we are glad to see that it resurfaced with the consumer brand being more willingly to embrace the edgier look.

Netflix Homepage Redesign Concept
Netflix first major redesign after four years drastically improved the site design and we are definitely in love with it. However, it doesn’t mean that there’s no room for improvement. Marco Lezzerini’s version of Netflix redesigned concept uses a masonry-style framework featuring cards that are structured logically with grids of equal spacing on one side and the shows’ details on another side.
Besides making the content both easy to understand and easy to browse, such design offers excellent compatibility with responsive frameworks. In frameworks that expand and contract, card grids can restructure themselves to fit any breakpoint and screen size. I would say such design is on a mobile first basis.Check It Out
