I’ve been designing for a little side project for Google Android mobile phones, and have been regularly caught needing user interface elements to design with. After searching around, there doesn’t seem to be much attention paid to the Android GUI by the community in the same way I’ve seen from the iPhone or Pre, so I had to create the PSD elements from scratch.
Well, no reason to keep it all for myself. Inspired by teehan+lax’s iPhone PSD, here are the basic GUI elements, built using vectors to scale, for the Android. It’s far from complete, but I’m willing to expand it. If you’re interested in other elements, let me know.
I highly recommend this quick addictive little puzzle game. It used to be a $3 download, but now the first half of the game is available for free online. It’s beautifully designed and worth every penny.
I got a deal on a Nintendo DS a few years ago because I was curious about New Super Mario Bros., but I haven’t really touched it since. Now I better find it, because this game looks amazing. You have to lead your character toward the star within every level through solving puzzles. But to do it, you have at your arsenal any object in the living world you can think of. They did it by sitting down 5 people for 6 months and scour the Dictionary and Wikipedia. Comes out in September.
American Todd Margaret (David Cross) bluffs his way into an apparently great job opportunity, heading up the sales team in his employer’s London office. All he has to do is sell several thousand energy drinks before his boss visits him in a week. Simple. Apart from the fact that he knows nothing about British culture and nothing about sales. This is further complicated when he lies continuously to cover his ignorance and spectacularly fails to impress Alice the first beautiful girl he meets. Dave his British co-worker, soon takes full advantage of Todd’s situation and chaos ensues.
When I was a kid, I used to have dreams about binding books this big (seriously). My pops has these *huge* pharmaceutical books and I wondered that if the bindings could be that big for his books, what would the limit be. Turns out that it’s pretty big.
