    Thanks Jeremy. I thought this would be a fun collection for a lot of people, glad to hear that you like it.

  • Sumesh, October 2, 2008

    Nice collection of tutorials, Steven. I remember the black iMac tut by Collis, it was actually a writeup of the process he used to create the iMac a few days before writing the tut (and it got popular on gadget blogs).

  • Filip Wroblewski, October 2, 2008

    Great collection. For sure ‘Apple style’ is a big source of inspiration. Now it’s all in one place. Thanks.

  • boring, October 2, 2008

    how boring. its allready overdone. all this glossy, reflection styles.

    sorry guys this is totally old and the last thing i would do as an designer, is to design the same crap like everybody is doing.

    in fact there are enough out there who dont got it.

  • Dainis Graveris, October 2, 2008

    Great idea about Apple tutorial roundup – I just love their design ( wel..who doesn’t) and tutorial series are hot!

  • Vandelay Design, October 2, 2008

    Boring,
    Sorry you feel that way. Plenty of other people have appreciated it, so I’m not too worried about it.

    Steve,
    Sorry for missing yours. Just browsing around your site and you have some good stuff there.

    Dainis,
    Who doesn’t? Well, apparently “Boring” from a few comments earlier isn’t so fond of it… Glad you like it.

  • Yves Van den Meerssche, October 2, 2008

    Very “Boring” indeed, now who wants to learn from the worlds best designs ? who likes Apple ? do they have any clue about style ? does it work for them ? yes. Should you just copy it ? offcourse not. it’s called inspiration. so thanks for that !!!
