Asking Designers: to code or not to code?

While fully agreeing with the importance of code literacy for designers, I started to wonder exactly in which situations designers might want to do some actual coding themselves, and in which they shouldn't. I wrote an article about it, and I thought I'd post here the link to the article, together with the entire content. It's meant to be more of a discussion starter, so your comments are welcome!

No more information architecture?

I wrote a piece a while back that there was a "war" of sorts going on between (among?) information achitects (who frequently came out of the library science, writing, or HCI fields), usability experts, and "designers," and by that, I mean makers of pretty pictures and high concepts (frequently designers who came out of a classic design-for-print-ads field).

Recommended graphics agencies?

Hi everyone,

We have an in-house UX team who is responsible for use case analysis, low-fi and hi-fi mockups. It is important we find someone who can work within the boundaries of our design to create an elegant/polished look & feel that can be applied consistently throughout the product.

I'm interested in reading articles or material that deal with this content.

Anybody successfully incorporated interactive whiteboards into their design process?

Our team is revamping the design room. Our current process is to sketch on whiteboards or butcher paper and photograph, then email the results. When we can borrow a Panaboard (same thing, but captures images to a USB stick) we use that.We'd also like to collaborate with others remotely.

Thanks to all for coming out to the AIGA Digital Dialogues talk with @gradybritton and @knuckleheadspdx on the build of the Choicelunch iPhone app. The discussion was particularly great, especially re: prototyping for the focus group and adopting a lean ux workflow, so I thought I'd post some of the highlights.
