17 Jan Apple updates Human Interface Guidelines.

It’s nice to see Apple finally updating the canon of Mac inteface design – the HIG, or Human Interface Guidelines – that you can read or download in PDF form here. I particularly liked the revamped section on icons, including a ‘Creating Icons‘ (albeit very basic, gives a good idea of the process of adding realism to icons) and the ‘Designing Toolbar Icons‘ section. A good read either way, as it’s very low on jargon and very high on interesting gotchas.
