Design Samples for Client Workshop


This is going to come off rather broad but I am throwing it out there
anyways. I am going into a client workshop series this coming week and
I have prepared a list of core areas for improvement based on both
their current product as well as research documentation provided by
the client. Without too many details, I am presenting the 5 keys to
success as:

1. Search and Retrieval (2000+ products)
2. Layout and Navigation (IA)
3. Ecommerce (|From a design perspective)
4. Content Delivery (Making it related / relevant etc.)

Site-mapping visualization tools (to be run locally)

Hi Gang,

I've got a big sprawling site that I'd like to crawl and render as a
visual sitemap so I can get a better handle on some of the IA
concerns. I'd been doing it by hand on earlier versions, but its just
gotten too big.

Can anyone recommend software that will do this automatically?
Preferably something I can run locally (for privacy / security

This is a two part question:

[1] If there are a number of desktop software products for a platform,
other than menu placement, and branding,
what factors should be considered to provide the same look and feel?

[2] What technologies can be used to create these for desktop applications?

IxD - Denver/Boulder Area?

Maybe the close proximity to mountain fun is too much of a distraction
for people, but there seems to be a disconnect between the size of the
Denver/Boulder area and the number of people actively involved in
IxD-related activities.

No HFES, no UPA... there used to be an AIGA local chapter, but that's
gone, as far as I can tell.

Anyone here from the Front Range area? I have a few ideas I'd like to
discuss with you.

Forrester First Look at Convergence Fact and Fallacy

Some recent thoughts from the guys I keep an eye on.

Research & Event Highlights From Forrester
07 March 2005


Convergent Technologies, Divergent Devices

Convergence has been a popular topic for years. The term has scared
executives into bad mergers (anyone remember the $2 BILLION that
Disney lost after buying Infoseek?). We hear about the convergence of
TVs and PCs, voice and data, media and distribution, marketing and
customer service, content and advertising -- and more.

Remote IxD work

I have worked on a few small, remote IxD projects (involving primarily
expert reviews, wireframes, task flow diagrams, etc - not user research),
and have discovered it can either be a pretty tricky process to maneuver or
a complete cake-walk.

I'm wondering what experiences others on this list have had. Are there
particular issues you've come across over and over, specific to remote
projects, or has it changed every time according to the client and the
client's process?

interactions magazine

The March+April 2008 issue of interactions magazine has emerged from
the printer and should be appearing in subscribers' mailboxes soon.

As subscribers and other recipients have seen from the
January+February 2008 issue, the magazine now has a very different
look and feel, and content that reflects a new vision.
