Does my personal past influence my Favor for Windows Mobile?

olive and pink posters from 2006, winmo from 2012

Holding Windows Phone next to the poster announcing our final exhibition of my art school reveals a stunning similarity: strictly left aligned, ultra-light Swiss sans serifs, white text on bold colours. It struck me even more when I explored the other colour  schemes of WinMo, since they offer a light olive and sky blue that Bernhard used for the poster series.

And then I remembered my first portfolio from 2004: tiles with project previews moving in the “wind”, and whirling away when you went for details (you can check it out yourself). Compare this to the main screen tiles animation in Windows Mobile. Stunning.
