  • New Perspective Icons for OmniFocus 2

    I mentioned it on Twitter, but I think it deserves a highlight here. Icons & Coffee have recently released Perspective Icons 2. It's a set of icons designed especially for OmniFocus 2. They make your Perspectives look awesome.…

  • A collection of Custom Styles for Marked

    I finally realized I was probably never going to find the time to build a whole community platform for sharing Marked styles, and I don't know how many people would participate anyway. So I started a Github repository for it.…

  • Essence icons for iOS 7 app design

    Silvia Gatta and Federico Viticci comprise Icons & Coffee, which previously brought us the Perspective Icons set for OmniFocus. Now, they've launched Essence, an icon set for iOS 7 designers. It contains 300 icons created with the iOS 7 design sensibility, and comes with a generous license that makes it an ideal fit for app designers (and anyone looking to leverage the new look).…

  • Sketchnote Typeface

    Mike Rohde (recent Systematic guest) has just released the Sketchnote Typeface, a family of fonts for creating Sketchnote-style works.…

  • Sidecar 1.2

    It turns out I like Sidecar (my new jacket for Simplify) enough to keep playing with it a little. I present version 1.2 for your review.…

  • Who loves music and 27-inch monitors?

    I had a little fun this morning making a very large theme for the Simplify music controller. I wanted something that made use of the background screen real estate on my Thunderbolt display. "Sidecar" is what I came up with... keep in mind it was pretty early in the morning. Naming things before 6am is not my strong point.…

  • Customizing the nvALT preview

    I got bored with my nvALT preview style. I've been using a GitHub style forever now, and it's great for just about every situation. Clean, crisp, legible... still, I needed a break. I based a new custom style on work that my friend, Erik Sagen, did for the next version of Marked. I made some tweaks for my own tastes, and added some JavaScript tricks to it.…

  • Perspective Icons, a touch of beauty for OmniFocus

    Federico Viticci of MacStories and Silvia Gatta, together known as Icons & Coffee, have released a set of icons specifically designed for OmniFocus.

  • Mac app review: Slicy

    Slicy from Macrabbit. I've mentioned it before (more often back when it was Layercake), but it's worth a more meaningful mention. If you create graphics in Photoshop for web or app UI and you don't use it yet, read on.…

  • A Fluid icon for ThinkUp

    I love ThinkUp for managing what there is of my social presence, as well as for archiving my Twitter and Facebook posts. So much so that it gets its own Fluid app. The favicon for the web app (which Fluid uses as the app icon by default) is really sad-looking in the Dock, though, so I whipped up an icon and thought I'd share it. Nothing special, just a little more pleasing to me than the blurry mess the favicon creates.…

  • Stained: Simplify Jacket

    This one was just for fun. I'm sharing it mostly as a starting point for anyone who wants to dig in and make their own theme for Simplify ($2.99 on the Mac App Store), a music controller for Spotify Desktop and iTunes.…

  • Bored with your MacVim icon? Me too.

    I got bored with the default MacVim icon a long time ago, before I was even using it regularly. I've been using Daniel Fischer's replacement icons since then, but today I got bored again. I didn't find anything great out on the net, so I set off to make my own.…

  • Pinboard redesign experiment

    A Pinboard redesign built off of the styles started by Josh Pigford, I'm providing a bare stylesheet which works with StyleBot on Chrome and User CSS on Safari. The Chrome version can be installed straight from Stylebot.me. Stylebot.me also has a userscript version which could be used with Greasemonkey, but my styles don't seem to translate well to Firefox, yet. I'll work on that when I have time.…

  • Dynamic placeholder images, now with kittens

    Thanks to Michael Jones for brightening an otherwise dull day for me. He pointed me to placekitten, a site that mimics placehold.it and inserts dummy images into HTML mockups for you. The difference being that placekitten does it with pictures of, yes, kittens.…

  • A cleaner HootSuite icon for Fluid/Prism

    This is just a quick pointer to an icon I whipped up this evening for HootSuite. I thought I'd share it in case anyone else found the default icon packed with the Fluid SSB download (available here) unsatisfactory. Their icon is too big and looks awkward in my Dock, so I trimmed it down and vectorized the owl to clean up the lines a bit.…

  • An ode to Twilight, and a TextMate tip

    A good friend of mine, Christina Warren, just published a piece on Mashable / Dev & Design about TextMate themes, and it warms my heart to know there are other people as dedicated to this aging text editor as I am. She also made her collection available on GitHub, so check that out if you're in the market for a new look.…

  • My weather report. Seriously.

    I did some massive Spring cleaning over the weekend, and found a lot of "treasures" that, after having been momentarily cherished, are on their way to the dump. A pile of Dead Kennedy's and TCHC cassettes from High School that had been severely devastated by an extended stay in the garage, original vinyl pressings from some of my old bands, Phreak boxes , and more defunct electronics than I could possibly E-bay. Amongst all of it, though, I found a CD of work from my Interactive Multimedia…

  • Designing Draw

    Erica Sadun recently released her latest app, Draw (iTunes link), into the wilds of the App Store. I take a special interest in this release because I designed the interface for it from the ground up. Erica, of course, made all of the magic happen she'd take my photoshop sketches and send them back as amazing working interfaces. In the end, it was a really fun process to go through and Erica was great to work with. Here's a quick walk-through of the design process.…
