Made with Briefbox is back again with a roundup of our favourite designs from the past few months!
Our community of designers has been in hot pursuit of the best briefs and we’ve loved seeing the outcome of their research and hard work with each brief. Here we round up our favourite designs across lots of different categories, so you’ll see print, web, app and illustration.
Party Peeps by Ellie Moreing
Submitted to Branding for Peep sunglasses
What we love about Ellie’s design is her clever use of font, flipping the middle e’s in the centre of the name to look like cute little sunglasses on a face. The on-trend, modern illustrations used on the front of the business card make the design totally unique and a real eye-catcher too. You can see Ellie’s bright, bold, unique style throughout her submissions which are flourishing as time goes by.
Tower of Yasaka – Kyoto by Blake Gedye
Submitted to Iconic landmark illustration
The sheer amount of detail in Blake’s illustration of the Tower of Yasaka is astonishing! We were really impressed that he stuck to the brief requirements and only used four colours for the final design which really makes the piece stand out –the contrasting colours draw your eye to the bold intricate building. Not only this but he also included his initial sketches showing a variety of different layout and style options. Take a look at this one for some illustration inspiration!
Aegean Air Booking Summary Screen by Ermis
Submitted to Quick Fire: Checkout/booking for a major airline
Ermis has come on leaps and bounds since his arrival at Briefbox, with each design getting better and better. Jess Caddick had this to say about Ermis’ design “It’s looking really lovely incorporating illustration to the design, it really brings the page to life! I love the bold palette against the crisp white, works really well to keep the design bright and clear. The hierarchy is great too – straight to the point”
Hey Chat Messenger App by Joshua Yeoh
Submitted to Chatbot design for a messenger app
This simple, elegant design is exactly what we’d like to see from a messenger app. The brief asked for a design that would push boundaries in terms of modern aesthetic app design, whilst ensuring the UI is simple and easy to interact with and we think Joshua hit the nail on the head. Not afraid to play with colour and amend the original logo, he’s created a sleek and on-trend piece which wouldn’t look out of place on the App Store.
Camden Gin by Laura Martins
Submitted to Website for a brand new gin bar
Quoting that she’s ‘still finding her feet’ with web design we think Laura’s done an ace job with this website for a gin bar. The dark green and dusty pink tones represent the classy, unique vibe of the bar whilst at the same time making it playful for a young crowd. We think the layout of the homepage is understated yet luxurious and would translate beautifully across the other internal pages of the site.
JJ Glasses by Fatih Yurttas
Submitted to Quick Fire: Shop page for a high-end fashion retailer
Quick Fire briefs are a chance for the community to have a try at a short, snappy brief to be completed in a timeframe of 4 hours or less. Sometimes this can seem daunting but it’s a great chance to perfect your timing skills and really push the boundaries. We think Fatih has done just that with her design of this internal shop page. The contrasting pastel tones keep the design modern and fresh, with a hint of high-end chic. The main type based logo makes for a non-time consuming logo design and the two-tone nature is translated across all buttons and icons which is lovely touch. The simple mockup brings all the key elements together to make for an eye-catching piece of design. We love it!
Animal Icon Set by Adam David Smith
Submitted to Animal icon set
This is one of our favourite illustration submissions of the winter so far. Adam has had a flurry of comments on social media about how utterly cute AND detailed the animal illustrations are. Jess Caddick reviewed this one and said “I just love this set. I love how you managed to get animals of all different shapes and sizes to fit in a square and still look amazing!”
Nike Running Club by Callum Cussen
Submitted to Quick Fire: Onboarding Screens
Callum killed it with his take on the onboarding brief. This is one of our most user-interpretive briefs with very little guidance given, so this neon, Nike running app is amazing, especially because it only took him three hours to create. This design is so on brand given Nike’s status in the running community and incorporates their most iconic, fluorescent styling. The interface is easy to navigate and allows the user to access all information they’d need in an interface which has been well though out. All in all, we love it!
