I’m attending Mobile Design UK

with 2 comments

Tomorrow at 6.30 pm there will be another Mobile Design UK event at London (RSA House) and very last minute I decided to attend. Just arranged travel and hotel and really looking forward to it! I’ll be taking the train and will arrive Thursday on 12.30 at London St Pancras. I will be staying at Hotel Wellington, not far from the RSA. I am planning on leaving the next day at 16.04 so this gives me some time to meet up, have a drink and/or a nice meal and maybe visit some things! If you are planning on attending as well and want to catch up, feel free to drop me line or send me a direct message via twitter ( @thomasjoos ). Matt Politt invited me to visit the ustwo studio, which sounds great! If you have any other tips or suggestions feel free to share them with me :)

Iphone Interface Design Elements

with 6 comments

When creating an iphone interface design you should know there are a few things that can easily speed up your proces and increase the iphone look and feel. When I am creating an iphone interface I always use the same 3 things:

1) – Yahoo! Design Stencil Kit version 1.0

This free download includes (among other things) an editable collection of iPhone interface elements. Open their PDF iPhone stencil in Illustrator and you can snap together your own iPhone design from dozens of editable elements.

Yahoo’s kit includes design elements for many, many more user interface environments:

  • Ad Units
  • Calendars
  • Carousels
  • Charts and Tables
  • UI Controls
  • Form Elements
  • Grids
  • Menus and Buttons
  • Mobile – General
  • Mobile – iPhone
  • Navigation and Pagination
  • OS Elements
  • Placeholder Text
  • Screen Resolutions
  • Tabs

2) Geoff Teehan’s (5MB)

This zip contains a Photoshop file that has a fairly comprehensive library of assets – all fully editable. Some of the design elements that are included:

  • Iphone unlock slider & other scroller
  • Iphone Lists
  • Progress bars
  • Checkboxes ( filled/empty )
  • Keyboard
  • Buttons
  • Labels
  • Textfield
  • Icons
  • Headers
  • Playlist visuals

3) Boulevart’s IPhone Sketchpaper

As you might have already read on my blog a couple of weeks ago, we published a mobile  sketchpaper. It might be useful when you are brainstorming or trying to find the perfect flow for your app or website.

PDF Files (300dpi):

Photoshop CS3 files (72dpi):
