Hi all,

I hope you can help me out here. About three years ago I found this
wonderful diagram which put ALL disciplines together that come into play
when developing User Experience (for the web?). I think it was inspired by
the famous diagram by Jesse James.

What did it look like:
- one page with all disciplines as circles distibuted over the page
- if I remember correctly, the organization of these circles was set to the
different steps in the process (like those in JJ's diagram)
- the circles were colourful on a dark background

Anybody seen such a thing and knows where to find it? :)

Thanks in adavance!

Kind regards,
Rein

I have a whole folder of these but I can't find one like the one you
are describing. I can send them to you if you want to e-mail me (or
find me on Twitter @apolaine).

I think this may be what you mean.

There are his other famous diagrams here:

The elements of UX is really good too.
Alternatively you might be talking about Peter Morville's User
Experience Honeycomb:

Hi Dan,

Thanks for the link. Although this is an interesting diagram as well, it is
more abstract then the one I'm looking for. Where this diagram talks about
the fields, my missing diagram goes more into detail and talks about roles
or activities from user research to html and css development.

It found it very useful in determining where ones practical interest lies
within the (abstract) field of User Experience.
