Design Report — January 2019
This article is a collection of my work created in January 2019 combined with my favorite design inspirations.
I started these monthly design reports back in August 2017 to challenge my UI/UX design skills and grow as a designer. The main purpose of these side projects is to try out new techniques, plugins, prototyping tools and solve design challenges I’m interested in.
InVision Studio — Breathe app Studio Jam

Started experimenting with 3D
I’ve been interested in 3D for months now, but somehow the complexity of apps like After Effects or Cinema 4D just made me constantly procrastinate around this topic.
I can’t wait to use more 3D mockups in the future and incorporate 3D more in my workflow.
InVision Studio — Parallax Card
Although animating path points is not yet available in Studio, with some out of the box thinking you can already create your own 3D Parallax card effect with using simple shapes and some optical illusion magic.

Inside Design — Is animation the key to great product design?
My first ever Inside Design article went live in January as well. 🎉
I remember the days when I started designing and I read the design articles on the InVision Blog (now Inside Design) for hours every day to learn as much as possible.
So publishing my first article here meant a whole lot more to me than just writing another one of design articles. It was an incredible feeling of being on the other side of the article and share my design and animation tips with designers all around the world.

Nice visuals and pixel-perfect UI aren't enough to stand out in a sea of apps. Without animations, even the most…
Being featured in the Best UX Case Study Collection in 2018 by Case Study Club
It’s such an amazing feeling of seeing my articles be useful for others, probably it’s one of the best motivations to keep working on these side projects and sharing my experiences in case studies about them.

Celebrating designers openly sharing their process. A great way to learn how people design digital products.
Passed the 10k milestone on Instagram
Almost exactly a year after I started sharing my product photography related posts on Instagram, I reached the 10,000 followers milestone, which was a special milestone to me.
My goal with Instagram was always hitting this magic 10k follower number just because now I can finally share links in Stories with the community, so they can just swipe up and open that link instead of manually typing in or messaging me about every single website and inspiration URL I share there.
Thank you so much for everyone who is following my daily journey on Instagram, especially for those who are following me since the early days!
I can’t wait to start giving back to this amazing community for all the support and motivation.
