Hey! I have recently finished two of the design works that I designed especially for my dribble and Behance portfolios to make them stronger. I would appreciate any feedback from you guys :)

Here are the links to Behance and Dribbble posts -

Desktop chat design -

Portfolio / Blog page design -

P.S I actually don't know why the quality in Behance is so low, but I will try to fix that soon :)

They are super clean and nearly minimalistic. Love them!
The chat reminds me of Facebook messenger (colors) but I think that there's a state of the art way how to do chats, don't know if there's much space for improvement/creativity. 🤔

Could be that I steal the fullwidth banner image with author and other meta overlapping from the blog for my own website rework. 😅

One question: is there any tool to create these abstract color background images? Something for a non-designer without bachelor of Photoshop. 😅
It's always what makes all the designs and themes look fancy and if you buy them the images are missing or you want to adjust colors.

Thanks, I appreciate that :)
Actually, the chat design was meant to be a bit like a Telegram's redesign. That's why these colors might look similar to other chats. And yeah, I might agree with you about the creativity/improvement space.

If there is anything you want to steal - of course, I don't mind, haha 😄 😄 I could even give you the base file, if necessary, I haven't planned to use this design for any projects.

The big background image was something new to me as well. I haven't really created anything like that before and, I think, It has many things to improve.
But how I created it? So I made like 6 or 5 big, differently colored shapes around my artboard. Then I picked "Smudge tool" and kinda played around with it until I got satisfied with what I had created. You can try to apply a gaussian blur as well, it gives a bit different effect, but it is so cool. Of course, there are many other ways to create these backgrounds, and this is how I did it and I am not saying it is the best or worst way.

Thanks, thought so that you've done them by hand. 😕
App idea: a tool where I can enter 2 to n colors (n can be limited) and possibly also pick something like a style, direction and retrieve one of these cool randomized images. In best case I get a new image every run. Or it even generates n images at once.
If I like one I can download it - possibly even in different types, SVG (if possible), high-res BMP, PNG and JPG.

That is actually a good idea! I'm not sure if there is any site that actually generates a good looking background like that. I think, many people would like this idea too.

I think most pages, I've found, only generate a pattern based background - they have some repeatable SVGs and you can choose front and background color. Nothing near this fancy as these abstract random geometry blurred color backgrounds.^^


I've created a dedicated thread for the idea: https://webwide.io/threads/app-idea-tool-to-generate-abstract-color-background-images.958/

Nice work @ReinissB! I think the only fault I’d pick is the black text on the blue bubbles in the chat app is a bit of an eyesore for me. Apart from that, love everything else. Particularly some of the flourishes on the website design!

Minimalistic and lovely, great work! There's really not a lot of room to move in the chat space, I wonder if there will be a time where someone really reinvents it...

But if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

I definitely agree with you! Thank you for your advice.

Thanks :) Maybe one day someone will come up with something better, who knows, hehe.

I think those are pretty decent designs. Fairly standard, but it's fine to not mess with what works.
Thank you!
