Recently i’ve been playing around with a new design for one of Freespee’s products, as a Facebook application.
I really loved it the first time I laid my hands on the iPhone GUI PSD package that the guys over at Teehan+Lax have been sharing to the world for some time now. When going in to work mode with a new user interface a pen and paper gets you very far – but when it comes to visualizing the ideas in to the details – a GUI in Photoshop is perfect. You can get in to the specifics and really get close to what the result is supposed to become. Surgeworks released a Facebook GUI Photoshop file earlier this year, and it’s really awesome! Almost everything I wanted to use was in the file. Sizes, graphical elements such as buttons and avatars where there. It’s all about building your mockup and not about getting stuck in creating the basics from Facebook.
What Surgeworks helps me with is time – one of mans most valuable things. So, Thank you Surgeworks for making my world a lot nicer.
