Guiding successful product development

Hi all,

I am looking for examples of brand/product/company guidelines or
principles that are/were truly useful to guide and direct
product/service development (not just advertising and marketing messages).

I asked this on the IA Institute members list and got a few:

* Luke W on Microsoft's use of design principles:

* Google UX principles

* Sony's design philosophy

Augmented Reality: Follow-Up

So, there was recently a discussion on the list about augmented reality [1].
During this discussion I mentioned that I was working on a new piece of AR,
it's released today [2] and I hope you will agree it pushes the envelope of
interactivity a bit more and - particularly - it actually has a relevance to
the brand activity.

It does rely on an awkward standalone app. download which we all really
tried to avoid. Please do take a look if you're at all interested in the use
of AR.
