design review tubik studio

Full of productive work and a wide variety of creative challenges, the year 2017 is almost over. For Tubik it was dynamic, bright, rich in meetings, shots, interesting projects and non-stop professional growth. The company got bigger, more experienced and diverse. And again, we start the new stage of our workflow remembering the most significant points of what has already been done, so today won’t be an exception. Let’s take a moment to turn back for a while and remember some outstanding things that marked the year 2017 for our team.


Keeping our active position on Dribbble, we published over 120 shots. Welcome to look through the set of top positions in the categories of UI/UX design, animation, branding and illustration. Following the links, you will be able to see all their detailed descriptions and full-size attachments.

Top Six Tubik News


Upper App Launch


At the beginning of 2017, following the successful launch of Toonie Alarm, Tubik team we rolled out another iOS application for everyday use called Upper App. It is a simple and elegant to-do list designed in minimalistic manned and aimed at easy task tracking. The application got itself the App of the Day on Product Hunt and once again allowed us to go through all the process from the initial idea of the product to branding, design, development and marketing of our own product. No doubt, this kind of experience was highly helpful for our work on outsourcing project.

Full Cycle for Product Creation


This year our team has grown to add not only the designers but also web and mobile developers, therefore the range of services which we can offer to our clients has broadened significantly. At the moment we are able to accomplish the creation of any digital product from scratch. Research, branding, graphic design, UI/UX design, motion design and video production, iOS, front-end and back-end development as well as copywriting for slogans and brand names — in 2017 we successfully dealt with all those positions and even more custom ones.


Tubik Academy


The year has also been marked with the first group of UI/UX designers who have completed the intensive course of UI/UX design in Tubik Academy — and two of them are already going through their internship in the studio.
