Matt Hillebrand had almost everything he needed to create a killer cocktail recipe app.
First, he knew a thing or two about cocktails.
“I’ve been a big fan since college,” says the 37-year-old Seattle resident.
Second, he knew how to build a phone app.
“My dad got me into computers and mobile technology from childhood,” he says. “I’d been working on mobile phone apps even before the iPhone came out.”
But what he didn’t know was how to take great pictures. So he signed up for lynda.com, taught himself photography, and shot the hundreds of stunning images that illustrate his popular Mixology app —which Time Magazine called one of the 50 best iPhone apps.
