sleekBlack v4 by timsilva sleekBlack v4 by timsilva
For Sale: [link]

sleekBlack is an ongoing collection of fantasy interfaces that I have been designing for the past several years. It is essentially a goal of perfection I am working towards that, in my opinion, can never be reached. I am forever infatuated with these types of interfaces, and making new ones allows me to outlet my ideas in a digital form.

This is more of a piece of art than it is an actual design. Designs have functionality, fantasy interfaces, or what I like to call pseudo designs, create the illusion of having functionality. They are different in that they aren't restricted by the same set of rules that true interface designs have, rather, they are limitless, like format of art.

I would call these cool looking, non interactive pieces; (1) fantasy interfaces, (2) pseudo designs, or (3) art interfaces.

I love the various subtle details in this design. They all work well together and give it a clean look thats not TOO simplistic, but there is beauty in simplicity. Any chance of a tutorial on some of the effects used in this design? (ex: the highlight at the top left corner of the frame and the textures behind/around it) I would love to learn how this look is achieved, it adds to the realism.

So... you're the one who wrote that interface tutorial... interesting.

Anywho, this is pretty cool. Text is so dark, it's almost unreadable though. :/

timsilva Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2010  Professional Interface Designer
Thanks skillet. :)

The texts readability is fine on most computers, it just depends on the brightness/contrast settings on the monitor you are using. I may update it to be a little bit brighter soon, been thinking about that one for a while actually.
