I was going through a bunch of my files a fews days ago and came across an app design I made in May of 2014, which I had completely forgotten about. There aren’t many designs of mine that I love five years later, but this one definitely qualifies. It’s also funny that I put design notes in the sample files.
I didn’t end up making Awesome Note, or anything derived from this design but there’s a big part of me that wishes I had. I am keeping the color scheme close at hand though.
Panic is a fantastic software and game company (I use their Transmit app every day). Yesterday they announced their new game console called Playdate. It looks like a lot of fun so I made some wallpapers in tribute.
I’m very excited to announce that I’ve launched a fun, new project. It’s an all new web comic called Human, Dog, Crow. I should have written this article yesterday, since that’s when I launched it, but it turns out that launching a fun little web comic takes as much work as launching any other website, and I ran out of time.
Stay tuned there to see what kind of of antics Human, Dog, and Crow get up to.
I made the website from scratch (programmed in PHP for the curious coders out there). I will probably open source the site code eventually as it’s pretty simple system to use for making a web comic site. And I think it would be fun to see what other people can do with it. I still have some more work I want to do on the system before I open source it, stay tuned. I also need to come up with a good name for the comic system.
Two weeks ago today, Apple approved and posted my first foray into app development in the form of QuickUnits. I had the idea for this app last summer and worked on it sporadically since then. Leading up to the launch I put a lot more time into it. It seemed that the closer I got the more motivated I became. I have to say, I haven’t had this much fun “working” in a very long time. I can’t wait to start on the next project, which is currently in the planning phase.
Check out the QuickUnits website or in the iTunes app store.
I decided it was time to learn the 960 Grid System for coding web sites. And what better way to learn than to make my own cheat sheet. Let me know if you find this useful and maybe I’ll make a 16 column cheat sheet as well. 960 Grid System – 12 Column Quick Reference
I was working on some ideas for an iPad app, and thought it might be useful to actually draw on one. Well, kinda. Anyway, I made these PDF’s so that I can easily print out an iPad whenever I need one. While I was at it I thought I’d let you all use them too. I can’t promise that the sizes are perfect, they are very close to the real thing (may very depending on your printer and settings). Feel free to download and print as many as you want, just send your friends here if they ask where you got it. Enjoy!
To celebrate the launch of the new site, I’ve made a new wallpaper for your pleasure. I’ve formatted it to fit most screens, and have included a version for computers as well as iPhones and iPads. Feel free to use this at your own discretion but if you send it to a friend, please tell them where you got it. Enjoy!
