Windows Phone Design, Part 2: Windows Design Language

Windows Design Language is the official name for Metro

The other day I wrote about a neat Microsoft video that discusses the design philosophy behind Windows Phone. That video was just the first part in a series of videos. And the second video, about the Windows Design Language, is now available.

Yes, this is the new name for Metro.

As with part one, interesting stuff and well worth watching. This one is about 16 minutes long.

Here’s the video series description from Channel 9:

“Starting with the basic terminology of design, this boot camp will take you from its early origins to the Design Principles each screen in Windows Phone was measured against. From there, we will show you the design process that guided its creation. Lastly, we will discuss the larger Microsoft Design ecosystem including Windows 8.”
