The 24 Weeks of Windows Phone Design blog series, which offered an in-depth primer to the design language, style and experience of Windows Phone, is now available as a PDF for offline reading. The series was aimed at designers and developers, but will be of interest to anyone who wants to know more about the subject.
The Windows Phone design language, previously known as Metro, originated on the Zune devices, before evolving on Windows Phone. It is now part of the Microsoft Style UI that is being used across many Microsoft products including Windows 8 and a number of online services and applications.
We’ve taken the entire blog series and wrapped it up in a PDF file. We added page numbers and a table of contents that should help you find topics much faster. These days PDF files can be opened across devices so it should be no problem to open it in your iPad, Nexus and very soon, Surface. You could also read it on your phone! We did not alter the contents so we apologize for the blog-like approach and informal tone. We also decided not to call it an ebook, it’s just a compilation of what we have in the blog. This is a free download (needless to say). Feel free to distribute.
