If you're an avid writer, and have a strong interest in making user interfaces and experiences better for the end-user, we invite you to write your own articles, to be displayed here on the front page of the group.

Any member can now submit their own articles via the Journal tab. Submissions will be queued up and subject to approval. If a few edits are required, those will be done before publishing. In addition, we will take care of any formatting, as well as images if there are none.

Looking forward to some creativity from our members!

I read an interesting article on Medium today about our past visions of user interfaces and experiences that blend with our very emotions.

In this dream from the 90's, we hoped for a world where every computer knows us personally. We would wake up to them, have them around us all day, and they would be the last thing we interact with before we go to sleep. They would predict our needs and wants and all interfaces would feel as natural as having a conversation with a friend. Technology would become our primary means (or only means) of communication and we would form relationships with these objects that take care of us.

I do still see this as being an entirely probable future.

As we all know, and thanks to Microsoft, Apple, and Google, 2013 was the year for minimalism. Wait, let's extend that. Let's call it flat, like everyone else does. And yes, the design trend will continue for some years, and may revolutionise the user interface as we know it today. However, I think there's more to it.

I watched Jobs the other day. Steve's outlook on everything inspired me. His philosophy involves the integration of the interface with people. A thorough blend that makes people really feel like they're involved with today's technology. And I think that what he's done is great - he's inspired people to build better.

Last year proved to be the year of simplicity and pure functionality. We look at Windows 8, and see that the core to it's design is functionality - ease of use, if you will. iOS7 did the same thing, though I am not necessarily a fan. It does the job, and it functions well, but it is not as easy as Android (particularly of the Galaxy flavour). But this isn't a review, so I'll move along.

Hoping I'm right, interfaces for the next year will feel more involved than they ever were before. And I believe that they should be. Humanity has built a great eco-system on computing technology, and we live with this system every single day of our lives. We use it for almost everything. And it's because of this that I believe designers and developers the world around will start encompassing a design technique that makes us feel like we're part of it. I'm calling it Reactive Design - though I'm very sure someone else is calling it that too.

Designs of the future will start reacting to our every move. They'll begin to, almost, form a relationship with us, as it were. From a subliminal point of view, this has already happened with predictive actions. When you start scrolling, Facebook takes a wild guess as to how fast you scroll through content, and loads more at the pace you give it. (Must be honest here though - I don't think it's the greatest thing, because it forces me to use the page down key as I prefer not to use multi touch scrolling on my laptop. Those with wheel mouses are good to go, however.) I digress from the point.

Designs that react to our every move will play an important role in 2014, and I think it will be a good thing. It'll be intuitive, free-flowing, and, most importantly, fun. Let's see what happens.

The contributor/member structure has now been changed, as promised. As ConceptInterfaces is a basic group, there is a limit as to how many 'Administrators' can exist within it - at present, it is 100. Unfortunately, Contributors are classified as administrators, and we hit a bump a few weeks back.

Here's what we've changed:

:bulletgreen: All Contributors of-old are now Members, and can submit deviations to the gallery. These submissions will be subject to a single vote by any Administrator.

:bulletred: Visitors can join as Members, and not Contributors.

:bulletyellow: However, members who make regular submissions, and that are actively involved in the group will be converted to Contributors with certain administrative privileges, such as voting for submissions, affiliations, fav requests, and member requests. The decision to promote a Member will be done on an ad-hoc basis.

:bulletwhite: Only Administrators (Contributors included) will be able to make contributions to the 'Featured' folder.

If you find any problems with the new setup (I cannot test as I am an admin), please do comment on this post.


Many designers tend to flow to the creative side of life, constantly putting new ideas together, hoping someone, somewhere, will implement them. This group serves to put as many quality ideas in one place to spread the word, and give life to apps we all know and love.

Rules & Guidelines / View the Gallery

Contributors can use this group to submit non-functional creative concepts for any of the following things: Windows, Mac, and Linux app interfaces, Internet browser and Web app interfaces, as well as mobile and game interfaces.

If you would like to join, simply click on the Join button at the top. Just remember to follow the rules and guidelines of this group.



Considering a new gallery folder
4 Jan 2014

We're considering adding a new gallery folder for contributions that have become functional since they were uploaded. I think it's a nice way to showcase these kinds of things. Submissions would also then be added to the front page of the group.

What do you think? Any thoughts? Message us with your opinions.

Sorry everyone. Like in the last comment, I have been extremely busy. However, things have calmed down now, and so I'm able to continue monitoring the group and looking for awesome concepts around DA.

Happy New Year!

Are you guys active or something?
Rock0 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2013   Interface Designer
Unfortunately, I'm quite busy, quite often. I only have a chance to check the group every few weeks. Sometimes a bit more, when I have some free time.

Hey I would love to join your group, but it says I am already an admin for three others. Are you planning on changing this at some point?
Rock0 Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2014   Interface Designer
I have now changed everyone to Members - this whole admin story drove me insane.
Rock0 Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012   Interface Designer
That's a DeviantART thing - you'll have to upgrade your account.
