Mobisnap isn’t Real

A big hello to everyone who has sent me Mobisnap related e-mails. It’s really cool to see that this blog does get visitors. I hate to break it to you though, Mobisnap isn’t real! It was simply the interface design created for a university project last year. The main focus of the project was the [...]


Update: Those of you looking for Mobisnap information click here! Yay! Go and explore my final Minisite. It’s Appleicious! Probably too Appleicious… But I didn’t steal much from them – just their whole company branding… But that’s all. Really. I’ve Photoshopped (sorry, manipulated imagery using the Adobe Photoshop image editing software. Damn US trademark law…) [...]


It’s the last day for DECO1200! Then blessed freedom! If only I could find the reset button for my brain. I’m still seeing the Maya interface when I close my eyes and trying to apply a circular fillet to things that don’t quite fit together! Right now, my biggest worry isn’t actually my website submission. [...]

Still Bloggin’

No, I’ve not forgotten about blogging (seeing as I still have 6 days before the subject is “over”). Although, don’t expect this post to be coherent. It won’t be. On the DECO1200 front, Minisite 3 is progressing nicely. I’ve just got to decide where to put what… Not fun. But the design is done, and [...]


Today was our last day of classes for the semester. Hooray! I’m sleeping in the morning without the guilty feeling of doing work. We also handed in the evil final DECO1008 3d modelling render today, it was worth 80%. Hopefully Steven and Marc think it’s as shiny as I do. I’m actually quite proud of [...]

Native iPhone apps! ZOMG!

Yes! It’s real! It’s exciting enough to make me briefly speak 1337speak! Apple have given in, there will be a real iPhone/iTouch API coming out next February. On the Apple Hot News page, Steve himself (or one of his minions claiming to be Steve) states: Let me just say it: We want native third party [...]

Abort, Retry, Fail

Given the recent plethora of surveys doing the DECO rounds, I thought this recent post at Worse Than Failure (WTF!) to be particularly apt. Take a close look at question 4. Also, it’s good to know Apple have confidence in OS X.

Development Notes 2

I’ve attached a bunch of sketches I’ve drawn (unfortunately, I’ve also lost quite a few). It shows some ideas developing from the initial sketch to the final prototype (now updated!). It also shows a few things that haven’t changed much at all. Perhaps that’s not a good thing…

Presentation 2

I’ve just given my second presentation for DECO1200 and I think some interesting points have been raised. I’m trying not to be a genius designer (i.e. “I’m right, you’re wrong. Get back in your box!”) . Vanessa asked what the colour button (on the edit screen from the prototype) does. Good point. I don’t think [...]

Development Notes 1

Today, I’m going to start a series of posts about the developments I’ve come across over the duration of the project. I’m going to scan in a bunch of scribbled pages I’ve knocked up on the train. It’s also, hopefully, going to show how my ideas have changed to better meet the requirements of my [...]
