Re: Reset Button Icon

RE: Reset Button Icon

If you're stuck in finding an icon do revisit the task flow and
the task goal, see if you can find alternate routes or solutions.

Also, consider an On-screen button.

Designing Installer for the Mac


I'm currently designing a Visio flow regarding a MPKG installer for Macs, and am wondering how I can make the experience more visually compelling and clearer for the user.

When I look at how to install Firefox on a Mac (http://tinyurl.com/4lt6cy), particularly the third image (http://tinyurl.com/5vp6ll), it looks really cool, simple and straightforward: drag icon 1 onto icon 2, following the instructions on the background graphics.

My installer works differently: you insert the disc, double-icon the disc

Estimating for iterative design

I currently give time/cost estimates for iterative design based on a minimum
of two iterations of a prototype and then demonstrations to the project team
and customer. Historically I've found that this has been a problem in more
than one project area, as two iterations is usually not enough to get the
product design licked, due to unforeseen technical complexity. Costs
inevitably become an irreconcilable issue.
