How do you avoid canned designs?

Hi,

When you work on two sites that that share the same goals, top tasks
and audience; would try to come up with THE optimal architecture and
interactions for both and just play around with their
aesthetics/branding to make them look different? or would you
experiment with each of them until they end up with different layouts
that work?

This is becoming an issue with some of my projects, since I keep
reusing layouts that worked.

Question about display of date select functionality

I need some help.

I am working on an application that requires the user to select a
start and stop date. This function is similar to a travel sites'
Depart Date and Return Date fields. The main difference is that we
want to constrain the dates that can be select to only those dates
that the user receives service.

I immediately wanted a calendar display because it provides context
to service periods and days of the week.

Examples of annual reports online

I'm looking for examples of annual reports online that are good. That,
maybe, even start to make use of the online environment and what it can
do. Or at least that go beyond a PDF of the printed version!

Bonus points if they look nice.

More bonus points if they are done with a web standards markup focus.

I know, I know, not asking for much :)

Amy happy to collate and post back to the list.

Thanks.

Mike

Need suggestions for iconography

Hello All,

This is my first post to the group. I'm going to admit that the discussion
topics each day are really enlightening.

I'm involved in a project (educational software) whereby we need to come up
with an icon that represents a test the user takes to assess their skill
level before they proceed with with more advanced functionality.

The icon will be standard windows icon size.

Any suggestions for icon depiction?

Thanks

Rob

Do we really need to use Vowels to call ourselves a Designer?

Or, put another way:

D w rlly nd t s vwls t cll rslves dsgnr?

After all, we've seen the successful removal of vowels from sites like Flickr (though it's true they just didn't want to pay the extra dollar for the 'e' -- the life of cost-cutting startups).

But, do I as a dsgnr have to really invest in understanding and using vowels on a regular basis? Is it really important for me to dsgn ntrctns?

I contend that vowels only get in the way of good ntrctn dsgn, so I'm thinking nt.
