In today's WillowTree blog post, Jesse Prehodick goes over some basic tenets that make up the foundation of good design in 'A Beginner’s Guide to Great Visual Design' - http://bit.ly/1EHCsB5
Recently, a friend of mine asked if I would take a look at an app he was developing. He didn’t have much design knowledge and needed advice on how to make the app better, and how he could create the best user experience possible. After talking with him more and taking a closer look at his app, I helped him make some basic design changes that will go a long way towards ensuring a positive user experience.

My Android wallpaper today is 'The Triumph of Death' by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, c.1562. #MuzeiFeaturedArt

This painting is a brutal illustration of many types of people being indiscriminately taken by death. Skeletons are murdering hundreds of people, everyone from peasants to nobles, and from children to the King. None are spared their fate at the hands of death. This painting illustrates the influence of the Dutch master painter Hieronymous Bosch, who also painted demonic illustrations of death and the supernatural, on Brueghel’s work. Brueghel cre...

The real reason you didn't get in to #io15  this year: they had to limit attendees even further since most of them will be Nexus 6 owners. One seat for you, one seat for your phone.
