The Dialogue: Greg Kasavin

After the fantastic entry we had for The Dialogue in December with Matias Duarte, we are back with 2016’s first entry: Greg Kasavin of Supergiant Games.

The Highlight 2015 — Best Animations

What we know today as ‘The Highlight‘ here on Beautiful Pixels actually began back in 2012, when we started highlighting our favorite apps and games that we’d seen over the last 12 months. As part of this series, we’ve been showcasing the best UI Animations seen in apps and other platforms.
