    We’re working on a new user interface design tool, called Skala. It’s a huge project, but things are progressing well.

    I can’t wait to show everyone more.

    Personally, I think the perspective is a bit off. Otherwise, great work!

    Looking forward for this Marc.
    Crazy how in such a digital world, a "certain software company" ignores more or less UI design tools.

    We deserve better.Good Luck!

    I was happy with just Skala Preview. I suspect this app will raise that happiness to ecstasy.

    Has the icon been created with Skala? :-)

    @Benjamin Nathan Not yet, so I suspect I’ll be redoing it several times over the coming months. I’d love to provide it as an example document. I guess we’ll see how that plan goes. :)

    @Lucas Veiga @Sean Warton Thanks! I hope so.

    @Oleg Stirbu We'll do what we can.

    @Jeremy Swinnen Which bit?

    I'm pretty confident it's going to be a great piece of software like all other things you guys did and personally I believe in your PS/AI knowledge ;)
    Yet I don't know if it can beat PS/AI, Sketch already tried to close the gap and indeed it's a great approach but to me it's not more than a fast mockup tool. What do you think about the latest Adobe announcement?

    @Daniel Adams @ Bowstreet We’re not really trying to compete directly. What we’re building is quite different and niche. So it’s likely to be better in some ways we care about, but not do everything.

    @Jakub Kejha @Andrea Cau Thanks!

    I really like that the beach ball is not a perfect sphere.

    Also I really like that Bjango is tackling a design app.

    Looking forward to seeing the app! Simple, but realistic icon. Hopefully I won't see a beach ball too much inside the app though *cough*Photoshop*cough* ;)

    @Marc Edwards ✎ Bjango To be honest, the whole icon :/

    I'd love to get the PSD for this icon. Marc, you're a photoshop wizard.

    @Marc Edwards ✎ Bjango Where do you see this existing along with Sketch? Competition, or different?

    So this is an entirely different tool than Skala Preview?

    seems to me like there's a bulge on the bottom of the ball.. i wouldn't expect a beach ball to be perfectly round by any means, but that seems like an odd place for a bulge and to me it makes it feel like its not sitting on a surface.

    @Ryan McLaughlin I see it as quite different, even though there will be some overlap. Given the pricing, some people may choose to own both. I’m definitely ok with that. (No, we haven’t announced pricing, but we will be reasonable for a tool of this type.)

    @Justin Lancaster Yep. Skala Preview is just for beaming images to iOS and Android devices. This is a complete design tool.

    @Uri Kelman A PSD is unlikely, but a Skala file could happen.

    @Jeremy Swinnen It was initially rendered in Cheetah 3D, so maybe blame physics or my choice of angle? I think there’s a good chance I’ll rework the icon a bit before the beta.

    @Marc Edwards ✎ Bjango Yeah, the bulge at the bottom is throwing me off. It feels like the focal length is...like...huge, or something, or the ball is deflated and nailed to the backdrop, rather than sitting on the floor :D

    I really liked this version a lot; even if it's not as realistic material-wise [this version nails the plastic material much more], the more detailed shading and texture make it feel more "real" anyway. I feel like this style, but with more detail and flair to it, will be the best of both worlds.

    If I have the time, I think I might try rebounding my own version... anyway, good luck and I can't wait to see what you guys are working on :3

    @Marc Edwards ✎ Bjango Yeah, much of Ollin' critique applies to me. It's a great, great icon but the angle is really throwing me off.

    @Ollin Go for it. Would love to see what you do with it. As stated, I’m not done on the icon yet. This is just to get the next updates for Skala Preview and Skala View out.

    Agree with @Ollin the version he linked to was better. Maybe it's the stitches, or the highlights around the edge. This (current) version seems a bit off (not a circle, lit strangely, gradient banding in the main focal area)
