Axure Pattern Library

I've created a small pattern library for Axure containing some useful
widgets and interactions. If you use Axure, or would like to see what kind
of prototypes it generates, take a look:

http://www.acleandesign.com/2008/09/axure-design-library-v1/

Does anyone have their own patterns that they would like to post? I would
also be interested in knowing if anyone found this useful.

Best,
Loren

Consistent Usage of Log In/Log Out versus Login/Logout

Greetings to all!

I have noticed that many sites utilize inconsistent label terminology
for links allowing a user to enter/exit an online account (be it an
e-commerce site, e-mail system, etc.).

I would expect that since these labels describe an action initiated
by the user (rather than a state), verbs and not nouns must be used:
Log In/Log Out, not Login/Logout.

However, often I see the following combination: Login (noun used to
enter) and Log Out (verb used to exit).

In your opinion, what do you think is the best label combination and
why?

Prototyping with OmniGraffle

Hi all,

I realize there isn't much talk on this list about how to prototype with OmniGraffle, so for those of you who use it to make your wireframes and deliverables, you may find this post I wrote useful:

Feel free to comment (on the post is probably best) with any follow up questions.

Omnigraffle IA stencils

Hi all,
For once - a non-snarky Will post. As of this week, I have made the
complete switch to Mac - and after installing Omnigraffle (new OS, new
machine, new everything including new way of doing wireframing and
sitemapping), I am on the hunt for all site mapping and wireframing
stencils.

Centred Layout Vs Left Aligned

One of those old chestnuts that keeps rearing its head in discussion with client and/or the visual design team.

Left aligned (fixed width) sites are evil right? ;-)

Anyone got any evidence to the contrary?

Love to hear your thoughts.

Standard font size

I know that there was a discussion on this list a while back, but I'd
love to get a more recent update as to what people feel is the best
'standard' font size for an average audience. We are currently in
a bit of a debate with a client about their 'standard' font size.

Their guidelines dictate using 14px Arial / 13px Verdana for content,
which we feel is too large. We feel that a 12px Arial / 11px Verdana
standard is more reasonable to most users (in essence, using the 75%
base font adjustment from the browser standards and then using ems
from that point forward).

Robust Flowcharts in Adobe CS?

I've been working as an interaction designer for less than a year (student, interning) and have struggled with finding a good tool to use for creating product flows.  Programs like Fireworks and Flash Catalyst are great for making clickable prototypes.  And programs like Visio are decent for creating flowcharts showing the overall organization of an application.  But the two remain largely separated.
