many of you may have read or just come across the book "Designing
Visual Interfaces" by Mullet & Sano
(http://www.librarything.com/work/5737/book/29957655). I think it's a
very interesting book and many of the principles described in the book
still hold today. However, most of the examples are very outdated and
also the technology has moved on in some areas (e.g. we generally have
much higher-resolution displays).
Does anyone know if there's any more current book/site with a similar
focus on the visual/graphic aspects of interface design? I've seen a
lot of inspiration-style sites on the net (e.g. http://konigi.com/,
Smashing Magazine etc.) but nothing that tries to distill some
principles out of all those examples.
