Here’s a simple UI set I worked on earlier this week. It was a fun experience creating matching interface elements. I’m thinking the whole thing is possibly lacking contrast—it makes your eyes work a bit—so I’ll probably play with that when I have a chance.
Any suggestions for UI elements I could add to this set? Tumblr doesn’t make commenting easy but you can send me feedback on Dribbble.
You can also download the psd file from my Google docs if you like it. It’s free of rights. My modest contribution to this world.
There has been a lot of celestial activity these days, which inspired me to create this illustration of a meteorite falling over an Icelandic landscape.
This is a composite photo: the sky is a night sky I found on google images—I removed the moon—while the landscape comes from a day picture of a cotton field in Iceland, taken by a National Geographic reporter. The meteorite is basic vector art.
By the way, here’s the difference between a comet and a meteor:
Meteoroids are small chunks of debris in space. When they enter our atmosphere they start to burn and and streak across the sky, blazing bright for a few seconds. They are then called meteors (or shooting stars). When meteors are large enough to survive their trip through the atmosphere and hit the ground, they are called meteorites.
Comets are also chunks of space debris such as rocks, but they have ice mixed in as well. Contrary to meteoroids, they have very long orbits, and when they come close to the Sun, the heat boils off their frozen ice and pushes it into a long, bright tail. Comets are much bigger than meteors and they do not have to enter our atmosphere to be seen.
