The end of 2017 is approaching. It was a great year in UX design, with major brands from companies known as Dropbox, Kickstarter and HuffPost. As always with a Rejig user interface design, there is the good and the bad. This has led us to some of the best user interfaces for mobile apps we’ve seen this year.
We have thrown a large network on the internet during the trip to find some of our favorite designs of the year and some special choices that have inspired us from the Dribbble. Keep reading as we look back over the year and discuss what we love about these mobile app user interface designs.
Todoist, the app that helps you put your life together. In this busy and wild world of UX design, there are a dozen app apps, but Todoist-Pop is the interesting selection of color palettes, including red and orange: an unusual choice for user interface design. However, it works especially in combination with unique illustrations and a clear and simple user interface design. It’s just what you need with a to-do list: just a few distractions and an easy-to-use interface.
What we love: friendly and encouraging UX copy. Do not underestimate the importance of copying in the design of the user interface.
Unfortunately, Potted is not a real app. But we want it. Potted is a concept of Judah Guttman for plant lovers who are often left with dead and non-irrigated plants. The intelligent design of the user interface of this app impresses with the intelligent use of maps to represent the plants of your life and the sliding timeline. This shows you which plants need to be irrigated. This is an elegant app for traceability of plants that is at home on iOS.
What we love: great use of images and the native feeling of iOS
Dropbox has really sold the boat this year with the new brand. The printing selection – in this case Sharp Grotesk and Atlas Grotesk – was a pleasant surprise in the sea of Proxima Nova and Futura. The rebrand brought a new palette of soft colors and hand drawn and drawn illustrations included on their website and mobile app. This makes the Dropbox mobile app interface special for the right reasons.
What we love: unique illustrations that add real character
Inhale exhale. Inhale exhale. Rest is a mobile app that helps you meditate. It is full of exercises, music, stories and methods, all beautifully presented in the user interface. Fortunately, there is no reason to stress with the design of the user interface of this mobile app. It’s serene and clean, and you want to start meditating right away instead of lying to yourself that you’ll start one day. Close your eyes!
What we love: discreet application of color nuances and clean typography
Medium is another company that received a new logo this year after introducing its new subscription model. To redirect the brand as editorial authority, Medium has decided to use a stimulating and edgy serif (Noe Display, if you’re curious) as a logo – perhaps as an indication of the newspaper’s golden days.
In addition to recovering illustrations from Nate Kitsch, Medium managed to regain her identity after a few years in nature. This is reflected in the design of the mobile app user interface.
What we love: the new logo and the brilliant (but correct!) Color palette in the app
Another favorite is Snug’s user interface for mobile devices, a company that simplifies the lives of tenants. The interesting thing about this Balkan Brothers user interface project is the refined combination of colors and the geometric character of the watermelon, Cera Pro. In combination with the minimalist and distraction-free interface, Snug seems to attract the right audience with his design.
What we love: the choices of bold and fresh colors
Airbnb has a huge team behind their app and this shows it. The design embodies the brand and the consistency between the design of the app’s user interface for mobile devices and web design. Consistency means that the Airbnb experience is the same regardless of the device you use. The mobile app demonstrates Airbnb’s commitment to its visual design language: it is very inviting and accessible to the global community that uses its services.
What we love: the seamless Airbnb experience on all platforms
2017 is the continuation of the minimalist and elegant design of the mobile user interface that we saw in 2016, inspired by well-known graphic movements such as De Stijl and Bauhaus. The minimal aesthetic of 2017 is undoubtedly more streamlined and best mobile app development as companies focus on good typographic decisions, an appropriate visual hierarchy and the positive use of white space.
