Yes, most of us are after better products from a usability and visual design perspective. However, don't you think that all designs should be evaluated based on unique, pre-identified success metrics?

***Certainly, this makes sense.

For example, an interactive design submitted to Comm Arts is probably going to have success metrics skewed toward innovation in the visual design realm. In that realm, text on gifs *could* be evaluated as good design if extensibility, download time, etc.

We're sure just about every company on the map has an opinion on
Apple's new device, but a few big wigs have taken time out of their
busy schedules to weigh in on the device. These are their stories.

- Nokia's Mark Squires, Head of Social Media, was mainly confused by
Apple's statement that it's the biggest mobile device manufacturer,
surpassing Nokia in combined revenue on media players, phones and

What will thousands of CPU cores unlock?

We have signals that Intel isn't going to settle with 8 or 16
processor cores and then revert back to let's-add-more-MHz contest.
They are going to add 32, 64, 128, 512, 1024 and 2048 cores per CPU.
(Reference: http://tinyurl.com/4pkslx) ... expect to see 8-core 500
Mhz Intel Atom processors for ten dollars each.

We have signals that at least Apple is trying to make it easier for
developers to use those cores.

Time breakdown for design tasks - user research vs. IxD, etc.

I seem to recall seeing some data on average design task percentage
for a given type of project... but I can't find it. (It may have been very
specific to a particular
domain, not sure)

For example:
1) User research - 20% of project
2) Interaction design - 20% of project
3) Visual design - 15% of project

Does anyone have any information on this?

Best regards,

Resources for the Business of Design?

I'm doing research into degree programs around the world that offer a
combined business/design degree of some kind. This might be a masters
in design management or design strategy, etc. I don't "business" as
in "running your design business" but how design is successful inside
a corporate structure (either as a client or as an in-house

Visual design manual for a software


I need to create a visual design manual as part of a user interface guideline document for a software. Does anyone have any pointers? It would be great with some examples. Thus far I have only found corporate branding manuals online... And those are mostly describing letterheads and other printed material.
