Project Educate - zandog interview
Welcome to the Handhelds & Icons Project Educate Week!
To kick off, I interview the mobile concept designer Alexander Gillis, aka zandog
1. What do you feel makes a good theme for a handheld device?
Regardless of the mobile operating system or launcher method, a theme needs to be complete. A full set of icons, wallpaper, dock, widget styles and sometimes even sound, need to be coordinated and functional. Everyone has their own tastes so the taste of the theme doesn't matter as long as it all fits together well.
2. If you were giving advice to a first time icon maker/theme maker, what would it be?
Understand the environment your working in. Each OS or their mods, have their own set of parameters. Pixel resolution, icon/dock/widget grid sizes and interactive functionality, all play big rolls in creating a intuitive and successful theme. The more you plan ahead and know what your system interface can do, the better outcome your going to
