The (design) process

"What if there were no stop signs... and a major corporation was charged
with inventing one?"

Fun stuff. Reminds me a bit of the "Microsoft designs the iPod packaging"
video.

Design of forms on web vs paper

I've been involved in a few debates about this question lately and
would like to write an article summarising the different positions.
It would be great if you could spend a few minutes emailing me or
posting your personal position on the following query:

"As a matter of best practice, should forms on the web be designed to
look like their paper equivalents? Why/why not?"

I recognise that this is a fairly "open" question but there are lots
of different ways that one could come at this issue and I'm keen to
hear about them all!

Job - seeking designer to help with data display

Hi -

I am looking for someone for the following job. I think it will be
pretty fun (I’m a jealous that I don’t have time to do all the work
myself, but will be working with the designer).

book rev. suggestions?

Hi,

I have a copy of the About Face 2.0 The Essentials of Interaction
Design, which I have not cracked open yet (but was going to soon). Now
I see that the third version is out, called About Face 3. Does anyone
know if the 3rd one is that much better than the 2nd - enough that its
worth spending the $$ for it?

thanks

turning freelance work into a sustainable design business

I'm at the point where I am looking for a job, but also doing a lot of contract/freelance work. In regards to the job front I'm not finding what I want or I find something and the position gets put on hold.

I'm trying to figure out how to turn my freelance work into a sustainable business, something that can provide me with a steady stream of revenue and income. When I was younger, I tried freelancing but didn't turn it into a sustainable business. I was not charging enough for services nor was I at a point where I really understood how to run a business (nor did I really want to).
