How is your team structured?

I am dreaming of the perfect division of ia, ux, and visual design in a team. Should we stick to being generalists, and wear all of those hats at once, or should we allocate resources to each role? I am curious to know  how other companies have approached this.

Suggestions, Examples or Patterns for a Touchscreen Radio Button / Binary Control?

NOTE: Yes, I'm aware of the iPhone/iPad controls, but as I said, we can't use those, we don't have multitouch, which I think you need for the on/off control to work properly.

A hybrid prototype — the holy grail of wireframing

After reading through Zaki Warfel's Prototyping, I hoped it would shed light on the most effective techniques. It was a very good read and included some invaluable insights on progressively iterating from paper models to high fidelity designs. It's led me to make some assertions about prototyping tools...

It looks pretty cool, and I've played around with it a bit, but I'm not sure how well it plays out in client situations when you have to get deliverables out fast compared to programs like Omnigraffle where you can bang things out in short order.

Any success stories using it?

Android UI Overlay Project


I'm a young graphic designer who recently made a theme for hacked Motorola Droids. While doing this I realized I didn't have nearly the creative freedom that I wanted, but also that the stock Android OS is really...really ugly and rough around the edges.
