I'm an experienced web/graphic designer making a lateral move into
the User Interface realm and have just landed an opportunity to
design a small but important CMS system for a client.
My question is: is there an expected number of versions or examples
of user interface visual design solutions/directions clients expect?
In the graphic design realm the expectation was to offer three
solutions and then further develop the chosen one.
Does anyone have any experiences to offer or guidelines they've
found particularly helpful? I have to offer a proposal to the client
in a few days.
The new Facebook design looks like one of the busiest interfaces I've
seen in a while. It immediately reminded me of the Yahoo! homepage
back when... well, when it was too busy. Yet somehow, the Facebook
homepage makes sense, doesn't feel too overwhelming and is easily
navigable and parse-able.
I think there are two things going on here; one is that they did a
fairly good job following basic Gestalt principles of perception to
clearly chunk out the layout and establish hierarchy.

First wanted to say thanks for this wonderful resource. My question
is that I am currently a technical writer interested in moving into a
visual design role. Though I have a stint of experience as a visual
designer, my educational background was not in design. I did look
into graduate programs but find that the HCI programs available seem
quite research based and are rooted more in psychology than applied
visual design, which is where my interest is in.
