"iPhone UI Vector Elements": Mockups in "Illustrator" erstellen

Wer "Adobe Illustrator" benutzt, um Vektor-basierte UI (User Interface) Mockups zu erstellen, der kann auf diese kostenlose visuelle Bibliothek mit "iPhone"-Interface-Elementen von Mercury Interactive Media zurückgreifen. Auch Versionen für "Photoshop" und "Omnigraffle" existieren.

"Most of the visuals for our applications start out as vector mockups in Adobe Illustrator. So when we started working on the USA TODAY iPhone app, we went looking for vector UI elements. Although there are a few good Photoshop resources and even a nice OmniGraffle iPhone UI file or two out there, we couldn’t find anything in vector format.

Rather than cry over the lack of good vector elements, we took it upon ourselves to recreate a large portion of the iPhone’s UI elements so we would have them available for future projects. Obviously, we aren’t telling you all of this just to wave it in your face and tell you we have fancy tools that you don’t. Because we care so much about our fellow iPhone developers, we are making our vector files available to you today. (I think I just made myself throw up a little.)"
