5 of my Favorite Screens

I often take screenshots (both web and mobile) of interesting, unique, and captivating interfaces and then upload them to Evernote. They are used as inspiration, and often help in everyday decision making when building interfaces and experiences.

I thought that showcasing 5 recent ‘screen favorites’ from my Evernote and why I like each of them can help others when they are searching for ideas and inspiration. If there is a theme to these it is ‘simplicity and function.’

Without further ado…

MixCloud Player

Mixcloud Interface

Why I like it: This player is simple, not cluttered, and shows the artist and track playing during a mix. Perfect for if you want to click to purchase a track you’re into.


This is Service Design Thinking

This is Service Design Thinking

Why I like it: While the visual design of This is Service Design Thinking could use some sprucing up, the concept is strong. Segmenting an audience on a site not requiring a login is cool, interesting, and something I don’t see that often.


Tripbirds

Tripbirds Landing Page

Why I like it: When I first saw this I immediately understood the concept: A leaderboard for trips. Simple. Tripbirds do a great way of communicating this on their landing page, and have some great visual elements that communicate friendliness / playfulness.


Github Dashboard

GitHub Dashboard

Why I like it: Github is awesome, but it can be a little intimidating at first glance. They do a great job of showing ‘What’s Next’ and giving the user more options.


PeerIndex

PeerIndex Dashboard

Why I like it: Another interesting dashboard, PeerIndex uses color and to highlight key information to the user (such as activity across sites, whether the user is an authority, and audience reach). They also use Sparklines effectively in their Groups area.
