Gravity poster

The first project of 2014 goes to Gravity! Here is an alternative poster for the movie, which I liked so much. This time I decided to leave the idea pretty simple and work a lot on the details, as you can see on a close up shots below. Took me about 1 week to finish.

The process of building shapes in Illustrator from start to finish.

Finding highlights and shadows.

Super rough, quick ideas on paper.

Zontik iOS app- minimalistic weather report

This iOS app design is a part of my graduations project at China Academy of Art. Below is a short video that I put together to explain the main functions.
View landing page

Inspired by the minimal, slick design of Dieter Rams, my app is designed to tell you whether or not you will need an umbrella today.

There are many apps which will tell you the precise temperature with up to the minute accuracy. However, for most of us the only thing we need to know is whether to take an umbrella today.

For more relevant weather reports, swipe your finger across the upper and lower sections of your screen, revealing the temperature and wind speed for today.

From the very beginning I was into skeuomorphic design. I love the way old Apps were made, they look almost tangible and real.

Promotional poster.

Landing page is available at andreydanilov.com/zontik/ Sorry, but the App itself is for Chinese App Store only.

App icon stickers which I gave away at my stand during the exhibition.

Here is a process of app development from sketches to a live experience.

Thank you

Huge shoutout to my buddy Allen, who helped me to develop the App and put it on the Appstore. 谢谢你!

Design Marathon (Day 25) – AQI 500 in China

Air pollution went off the scale recently in China, couple of days back the Air Quality Index hit 500 and Chinese media found 5 benefits of the smog:

1. It unifies the Chinese people.
2. It makes China more equal.
3. It raises citizen awareness of the cost of China’s economic development.
4. It makes people funnier.
5. It makes people more knowledgeable (of things like meteorology and the English word haze).

The 6th probably will be – it motivates you to design stuff. Illustrated this today afternoon.
