A pipe dream indeed!

It's perfect that this thread's subject is about seeking the "holy grail" of wireframing: Any time you find yourself calling something you desire a holy grail, it might be time to start asking yourself why you desire something that you know does not exist!

Part of being a good designer is being able to use little else besides your imagination to envision how a design or an interaction might work, essentially

Tog's IxD 101 Immersion Seminar - Opinions, anyone?

Hi All,

A long-time product manager that I know is thinking of expanding
her repertoire with some IxD skills. She's asking me if Tog's IxD
101 is any good, but I don't know offhand anyone that's taken it.


Thoughts out there? Are there other options that you'd suggest in
the intensive realm for a relative newbie to IxD?

Guiding an interface evaluation session

Dear all,

I'm planning a session with some users who are experiencing a problem with an existing complex editing interface (aimed at structured data capture). What I wanted to achieve is to identify where the key problems lie so I can work on a redesign: ideally via one to one sessions but this isn't possible as the team is very distributed so we need to do it as a group in a central location.

Best source for graphic design talent?

I have good links with talented UI designers, but for pure unadulterated graphic design brilliance, I am a little short.

Is there a website where some of these pixel gurus live and show their work? UK specific would be good, but not essential.

Really, You Should All Just Shut Up

and read

Designing for People by Henry Dreyfuss.

And relish at how it was pretty much all figured out about 50 years ago
(well, written about then... I'm sure he was practicing as such long
before then). Process, terminology, skills, etc. etc.

I've been (slowly) writing my thoughts on it on my site
