Rockin’ UI guys.

March 28, 2009

I was chatting a few days ago with Tariq, and we were talking about UI design. As I have a few friends involved in it and as I love it, this is a topic I really like to talk about, even if I don’t consider myself as a UI designer. We were discussing about which UI designers I like, and I thought it would be interesting to share.

So here is my top 5 UI designer list. The order is alphabetical, because it’s really hard to choose which one is better than another.

Daniel Burka (Digg, Silver Orange)


Dan Cederholm (Simplebits)

Simple Bits

Wilson Miner (Everyblock)


Soxiam (Vimeo)


Andrew Wilkinson (Metalab Design)


So, this is the list of the guys I’d really love to work with. Oh, and yes, Most of them are American (I mean the continent, not only US based). But there are also great UI designers everywhere. By the way, my favorite French one is certainly Olivier from HelloCoton.

Maybe I’m missing some outstanding UI designers, and as we all like different things, don’t hesitate to let me know which designers you like the most.
