I am thrilled to announce that Grant Hinkson, visual designer extraordinaire, has agreed to create a new skin for Podder! I have the utmost respect for Grant’s talents as a visual designer, his imaginative use of visual effects, and his expertise in WPF. I can’t wait to see how good Podder will look once he is finished with it.
I thought it was a long shot when I asked Grant if he would be interested in working on my side project, because I know he is a very busy person, but he was just as excited as I am about working on Podder. It is great working with passionate people! I feel that the Podder project has now gone from being cool to phenomenally cool.
Here is a little background info on Grant, in case you are curious:
- Director of Visual Design at Infragistics
- Created the WPF tool called Pistachio
- Wrote part of the “Silverlight 1.0” book, published by Wrox
- Created the Fireworks to XAML Exporter
- Active in the Fireworks community
- Articles on Adobe Devnet
- Did Fireworks session at Adobe Max
- Fellow Bach fanatic
Thanks for agreeing to help make Podder, Grant. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
