A big reason why I'm doing what I love as a full-time job goes back to the early days of OS customization. What started as collecting thousands of dock and folder icons, progressed to UI icon replacements, all the way to complete OS theming.
Similarly, when the iPhone was released, before there was even an App Store, I created replacement icons as themes and released them as free downloads. When the App Store was introduced, clients began approaching me for visual design.
Learning is never-ending. That is why even until today, I take time to study the platforms I work with, practice by example, improve and iterate to satisfy the what-ifs.
