Announcing the New KDE-Artists.org Website

Filed under
KDE

KDE-Artists.org is a new KDE sister website created specifically for artists and coders to use for reference and direction in creating a high quality consistant user interface. It is also the home of Kollaboration, a new concept created by several people to give dreamers, artists, and coders a place to work together.

Here are just a few things you will be able to do at KDE-Artists.org: use Kollaboration to see your ideas or concepts come to life, interact with and learn from seasoned developers, learn new "tips and tricks", easily find guidelines for creating high quality KDE artwork, acquire re-usable tools like color palettes, and icon elements, get involved with the "official development", vote for preferences, help establish standards, get involved to help coordinate the look and feel of each release, and a space where coders can request specific artwork for their applications.

Roman Nurik’s latest FORM Watch Face demonstrates the power of Android

If the name Roman Nurik doesn’t ring a bell, he’s a design advocate for Google, and every time he decides to publish an Android app it seems to turn out a winner. His two previous apps that created quite a stir in the Android community are DashClock Widget and Muzei Live Wallpaper. Both are awesome, so you shouldn’t expect the next to be less so. While not immediately useful to non-Android Wear users, Roman’s new FORM Watch Face demonstrates the power of Android as a mobile platform. Read more More Android Wear:

  • LG Watch Urbane Review: Wonderful Hardware But Android Wear Is Still Frustrating
    When I wear the LG Watch Urbane people almost never ask me about it. Why? Because it looks like a watch. Other smart watches, like the original Samsung Gear and the Sony Smartwatch 3 attracted more questions from people, perhaps because they’re more obviously not watches. The shape helps, like the G Watch R, the Urbane is circular and has a prominent button on the side. If you have the right watch face installed it’s actually nearly impossible to tell it’s not a standard, but chunky, watch. That is surely a good thing from a design perspective, although watch elitists will still tell you the smartwatch thing is nonsense, and a fad. The truth is that even big names in traditional watchmaking are thinking about how they can offer smart features in their watches.
