03 Nov Updates!
Category: Personal

Boy, it’s been a while. I really need to update everyone on what’s up and what’s coming up.

– I’ve been working hard for the Mothership for the last months (hence the blog silence) and really enjoying the big workload. I’m very thankful to work with a lot of extremely talented people.

To get misunderstandings out of the way: I have not closed up shop, I have not relocated, and I am not working on Mac OS X Lion. Phew! This is also the reason I am not doing UI roundups and the likes for iLife ’11 or doing elaborate commentaries on Apple products. I’ll announce what I’ve worked on when it’s released, though!

– There will be new designs for Icon Designer, Cocoia and this blog next year!

Icon Resource 2 is still very much being developed! Due to Retina Display and other new developments I’ve added some more material to the curriculum which piled on the delay. I’m wrapping things up for this year, so you can spend 2011 making awesome icons and interfaces. I apologize for the delay, but it’ll be worth it.

– I’ve been doing a video series on Minecraft. Check it out: the newest part, due out this week, will be very intense. A teaser:

Check out the full series here.

– Remember Composition? Vaguely perhaps? There’ll be news on that. It’s out of my hands, since I’ve been unable to complete it, but… well, I’ll save the good news for when it’s applicable.

– Speaking of old posts: I’ll be hitting up Dreamhack Winter 2010 again, thanks to sponsors like Intel, HP and others who are facilitating Pack4Dreamhack (with full press access!). Are you there? Let’s meet! I’ll be doing another ‘packing’ post and a report from the floor.

– And, of course, there’s some neat blog posts coming up. Good Old Games on extremely small touchscreen devices? Check! Pointers on Android UI design? Check! And (hopefully) showing off some work I have been doing for a PC / PS3 / Xbox 360 game.

    Wow, you live! I didn’t know you work for Apple now! :)

    I remember you writing that in the many times you were asked to work at Apple, your family and friends held you back, what changed your mind this time?

    I’m now working remotely. That’s what changed :)

    RE: working at Apple remotely
    Hence the image with an Apple in the cloud, then? ;)

    Good to see a blog post from you again. :)

  5. Good to see you haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth!

  6. Hehe, good man!

    Looking forward to all of your awesomeness! I had almost forgotten that you work for Apple now. That explains a whole lot.


  7. Congrats! Can not wait to hear what you have been working on at Apple! Since you will not be going UI roundups of mothership products you could always pick up reviewing independent software. Would be interesting to have your take on custom designs and tips on what could be made better, especially because indies are mare more likely to actually implement your improvement ideas.
