Along with the Windows Phone SDKÂ and new Dev Center release, Microsoft alsoÂ published a new design resourceÂ website to help developers designÂ great Windows Phone apps.Â This newÂ site has the basic principles and concepts you need to design great Windows Phone apps. Windows Phone design was inspired fromÂ Swiss-style print and packaging, simple way-finding graphics found in transportation hubs, and evenÂ Microsoft’sÂ own software like Media Center andÂ Zune.
