Apple sets the bar these days when it comes to electronics. There are few manufacturers who do a better job of producing products that people obsess over, but also at communicating and articulating why they’re so special. While watching the Apple keynote last week, I was impressed with how amazing the production of the new Mac Pro was.

Browsing through Dribbble I came across this shot by David Wilder, associate creative director of PBS, who shares just how great the iconic PBS logo looks on the new iOS 7 app icon grid. The logo, designed by Tom Geismar of Chermayeff & Geismar in 1984, fits in perfectly with the overall aesthetic and styling and still looks just as iconic as it did 30 years ago.
This hasn’t replaced the existing icon quite yet, but it’s certainly going to be a welcome change when it does.
Last week saw the release of this interview with Jonathan Ive and Craig Federighi over on Businessweek, giving some insight into two of the main men behind Apple. The piece is basically a design/tech love fest, and there are definitely a few gems in there that really make the whole piece. Here’s one of my favorites.
Somehow, because our products are used by more than one person, you don’t accept “OK, there is this polar opinion and this opinion,” because basically then what can happen—and I have seen this in other places—what can happen is that energy then is spent in the debate, rather than the belief that, you know what? We have an ambition that is real because we believe there is a solution. There is an idea that actually transcends that debate.
I spotted this iOS 7 inspired business card over on Dribble this morning by Beasty Design and loved it. The new flat design certainly works for this sort of implementation, and honestly, I’m surprised it took someone this long to make an iOS 7 version.
With over 200 million people updating to iOS 7 already, clearly there’s a demand for cool backgrounds to go on their iPhone or iPad. Enter BLRRR, a gallery of candy colored images that work great on iOS 7 devices (and which I currently have as my iPhone home screen background). It was put together by Enormous, the folks who created the Blur app which allows you to make your own cool backgrounds. Lots to choose from, go wild.
