Austin Andrews from Maven Wave Partners has put together a talk on design and user experience aimed at developers on the Windows Phone platform. The talk will guide developers into things they should be thinking about along with how to implement a recognizable brand for their application.


The outline includes:

 - Layout

 - Spacing

 - Controls

 - Basic Color Theory as it relates to Metro

 - Typography and using custom fonts in Expression Blend.

 - Designing a Windows Phone icon in Expression Design


This talk requires no knowledge on the Windows Phone platform only an interest. Expression Design is recommended if you want to follow along with designing an icon.
