foundation classes/topics for IxD education

Whether formal or informal education is an important part of anyone
pursuing a career, especially one like interaction design that has so many
elements to it. In pursuing my own formal education I came across a book
called "The Elements of Design" by Gail Greet Hannah. The book is part
chronicle and part instructional text for anyone interested in abstract
3-D design, which is a primary component of Industrial Design. The book
outlines 6 core attributes of any 3-D design solution and calls these the
foundation courses.

Corporate website redesign, where to put intranet access?

Perhaps call the employe login link: "Remote Employee Login", as
that sounds like what it does.

Instead of "Corporate Information", perhaps "About [companyname]"

I've seen the "graphics" section of many corporate web sites
called "Press Kit", "Media Kit", and "[companyname] In The
News", depending on what's really there, and for whom it's
