That’s all, folks!
Happy 5th Birthday to Tumblr’s iOS App!
On Feb. 25, 2009, Tumblr turned the Tumblerette app into its official mobile app: Tumblr for iPhone, Version 1.0.
Wow. Five years. The Tumblr app will always have a special place in my heart and I’m proud to have been its steward during the early years. The sale of Tumblrette to Tumblr effectively started mobelux and that early contract to maintain it allowed us to start building the brilliant team we have today.
Here’s to the next five!
Great storm sky tonight. (at Manchester Bridge)
I brought it back.
Why, hello there!
Great way to cap off an announcement day. And here’s some additional trivia: Mobelux also helped develop the UNIQLO app for iPhone and iPad.
We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on. See you tomorrow!
Very excited about this one. More to come.
If you worked @mobelux you’d be shooting at your coworkers right now. (at G-Force Karts)
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.
