Let’s go back to Kindergarten for a second. Do you remember your first experience with a computer? One of the very first programs I got to play in was Microsoft Paint. When I saw the color wheel, I fell in love. I also loved playing in the 25 fonts that were available. The possibilities seemed utterly limitless!
Presentation is nearly everything- I think we know this in CICS. This is not a colorless, Times New Roman occupied vacuum, right? Therefor, I want to share some interface design sites I’ve been looking at. Some are merely conceptual, others are actually implemented and some might have tutorials! I get excited about these things. Hopefully you will enjoy the nuances and insights these sites examine.
Looking to make a cool logo for your group or a prototype of a website? (I’m a few weeks late, I realize this) Here are some cool, method-explained ideas!
Some of these designs are conceptual. The use of iOS-like nuances make these ideas really stunning if you’ve never actually considered the amount of detailed simplicity put into them.
“OS Human Interface Guidelines describes the guidelines and principles that help you design a superlative user interface and user experience for your iOS app.” This is by Apple. Did you know this existed?
I might post more… but that’s it for now!
