Invisible Design and Apple’s Watch Faces

Links, Apple, Apple Watch, Design

Yet what Dye seems most fascinated by is one of the Apple Watch’s faces, called Motion, which you can set to show a flower blooming. Each time you raise your wrist, you’ll see a different color, a different flower. This is not CGI. It’s photography.

“We shot all this stuff,” Dye says, “the butterflies and the jellyfish and the flowers for the motion face, it’s all in-camera. And so the flowers were shot blooming over time. I think the longest one took us 285 hours, and over 24,000 shots.”

Such a great article from Wired on the watch faces from the upcoming Apple Watch. I know for my wife, the butterfly face will be her go to. Or maybe the Mickey Mouse. She wants a Tinkerbell one, but I’d be willing to bet that developers will be able to design watch faces and complications soon.

Quite a few good articles on the Apple Watch published today as the presale starts tomorrow at midnight (PST).
