Where to place testimonials

Does anyone have any input on the following?

We're looking at adding in testimonials to a website for a client who provides building services. We were thinking of either putting them alongside the projects in his portfolio, on a "testimonials" page, or both.

Does anyone have any data on how effective either or all of these are together or alone? More importantly, has anyone seen any research that says whether people look at a testimonials page or prefer them inline or look for a separate page?

PNG Express - New photoshop plugin for delivering UI designs and specs

Hi all,

I've released a Photoshop plugin focused on automating and optimizing the delivery of UI designs for development. It automates the slicing and exporting of PNG assets, and allows you to create matching UI design specs with concise information on element positions, dimensions, margins, font features etc.

It's a handy tool to greatly speed up your workflow while ensuring the consistency of your design deliverables. It's made for both individuals and design teams working on for applications, web sites, mobile apps, and similar.

Reminder: IxDA Silicon Valley Event at Yahoo! :: Jan 23 2013 :: Steven Hoober on Designing for Ecosystems Instead of Screens and Pages

Too often, we design systems for boxes—whether big, metal boxes that it would take a forklift to move or little plastic boxes that we carry around in our pockets—rather than thinking about how they are connected and how people can share and use them to do work. When it’s all about the computer or device, we design systems, tasks, and content that fit into those little boxes.

Nonprofit site redesigns

Hi all!

Just joined ixda, so hello to everyone..

I'm embarking on a website redesign with a nonprofit that works with enterprise to incorporate sustainability practices. I'd like to do internal stakeholder interviews to discover what their expectations/ higher end goals are for the new site.

Does anyone have experience with this kind of interview (I've mostly done end-user contextual interviews for consumer products), have input on how to communicate with stakeholders, what kind of questions yield the most valuable anwers, etc?
