a regular basis.

Do most interaction designers also deliver graphical design

Hi there,

I am in the early stages of a new product ( to create online 3D virtual
art galleries ) using a click and drag interface.

Think of it as similar to Powerpoint, instead of a new page you create a
new room, and pick it's template etc.

The design of the UI will be pretty graphical, and will incorporate some
real-time 3D aspects ( not just for previews ).

[PLUG] Special offer: User Interface 14 Conference

[Apologies if you get multiple copies.]

I'm very excited about the User Interface 14 Conference that's coming
up, November 1-3 here in Boston, MA.

We have worked on this program for most of the year, and I have to

Any suggestions for design training for a beginner?

I¡¯m a Year 3 student in a business school. However, I want to apply
a graduate program of interaction design.

I have only a year before application and decide to learn by myself.
Some knowledge can be acquired by reading books and articles. But
I'm really confused about how to practice "design".

As far as I know, design relates painting, photography, expression of
color and material etc. I had learned painting for 6 years, 2 years
for sketch.

Link Req: Yahoo New Website Tour

Hello all,
Apologies for cross posting,

A couple of weeks ago, Yahoo released their new website and with that came a

Yahoo new website tour, any other good "new features tour" or links to
tours/demos similar to the new yahoo one, please to send links.

thanks in advance

Java based web frameworks - any experiences regarding flexibility and frontend design?

In the planning of a large scale web application project the following web frameworks has been suggested:


  • JBoss Seam
  • Spring Web Flow
  • Spring MVC
  • JSF
  • PrimeFaces
  • Struts
  • Stripes
  • Tapestry
  • Wicket
  • AppFuse
  • Turbine


My concern as the principal consultant on user experience is to avoid any frameworks with limitations that can compromise our main target, an efficient, user friendly concept. I'm sure you all know my concerns in this regard.
