mynetx: Skins - good word. Is customizing the Messenger interface fun for you? Or a serious business? Or in between?
Will: Well a bit of both really. Originally I started skinning as a hobby so that I could help improve my abilities as a multimedia designer. I was hoping that by working with an established user interface I would be able to gain a deeper understanding as to how the user interprets UI’s.
I never really expected to be doing it for that much mainly because I didn’t think that audience was big enough at the time. But it seems that has changed in recent times so now I do treat it more seriously.
But yeah for the most part there is still the original sense of fun which attracted me to doing it in the first place.
