I’ll say from the start that I’m a fan of Metro – the new design system for Windows Phone 7. It’s already inspired a great Twitter client and having played with a WP7 recently, I continue to be impressed. I like it’s clean, elegant 2D look versus the now overused, glossy, reflective look. I actually like both from a design perspective but prefer Metro for now at least.
You can now get a collection of resources should you be interested in designing for WP7 or perhaps you’re just interested in UI design. The UI Design and Interaction Guide for Windows Phone 7 v2.0 and Design Templates for Windows Phone 7 are now both available.
Also available as a PDF is the Windows Phone Design System – Codename Metro. I believe this is the source of the book that was recently handed out at MIX10 (if memory serves) with pages full of stuff like this…
Call me a design geek…but I like it.
