Now I’m just waiting for the actual offer to come through. Guess I didn’t bomb the interview like I thought I did. Mind you – there were 7 interviews plus a group portfolio review, so maybe, even though I forgot to say those things (look at previous post), it still must have shined through. Now fingers crossed that the offer comes swiftly and is a good one. 🙂
So what have you all been up to lately? Any cool projects you’re working on (either professionally or on the side)?
I had a neat opportunity yesterday to be a guest speaker/guest teacher for a design college here in Seattle. Had a blast, as I typically do when I get the opportunity to work with students. But it led me to think about a few things. Continue reading

Love designing for the tablets – you can do much richer interactions and really push innovation in new ways. Metro and the new Windows design paradigms are a blast to create for as well.
Well – would love to hear what you all are working on these days. What have you accomplished in the last month?
Fresh Paint for Windows 8 review.
Yay it’s released! Reviews seem to be going well as well!
So to those who don’t know what I’ve linked to here. It’s a tablet application for the new windows 8 tablet that has just hit the marketplace. This is an app I worked on and helped consult on when I worked at Microsoft.
Its an art application that tries to be realistic about paint textures and blending and what not. If you have a nice touch screen – you can paint using a dry paint brush and it will pick up the individual bristles of the brush – building paint on those bristles and then painting a stroke with each bristle’s touch point. VERY fun to play with.
