The effect of designing for iOS 7 on an iOS 6 brain.
If you really want to communicate something, even if it’s just an emotion or an attitude, let alone an idea, the least effective and least enjoyable way is directly. It only goes in about half an inch. But if you can get people to the point where they have to think a moment what it is you’re getting at, and then discover it … the thrill of discovery goes right through the heart. — Stanley Kubrick
Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. —

I’m not sure if ‘profound’ is a strong enough adjective to describe how I feel about this particular insight, but it’ll have to do.
A few early thoughts on iOS 7 and a theory on what its drastic changes might actually be about.
Why, hello there.
Movin’ up in the world.
This year’s RVA Hackathon is a 12 hour event on June 22nd, 2013 for attendees to develop an idea they’ve been meaning to tackle. There are no restrictions on platform or language and there is no theme. At the end of the event we’ll have everyone present what they made and award the best stuff.
Sound like a decent way to spend a Saturday? Sign up now! We can only admit a limited number of people and slots will fill up fast.
This is gonna be fun, you guys. Hope to see everyone there!
Oh man. I forgot about Cheez Balls.
