"Make it pretty" - My Boss

Howdy, I work at an organization that believes having a "Pretty" skin is all you need to have a good User Experience. Has anyone ever run into this, and how does one overcome this. I am literally at my wits end trying to prototype different layouts, and explaining the need for user research/feedback. All comments are welcome, constructive or not.

New soft drink user experience

I just came back from lunch at a fast food restaurant where they were heavily promoting how you can over 100 flavors of soft drinks now.  They had 2 brand new Freestyle dispenser machines.  The part I found fascinating: despite a large, interactive touch screen display and a *fairly* siimple task, the restaurant had not one, but two, assistants helping each and every person get a drink.

Fastco Design article: more hating on UCD

Yet another article on why "we don't need no stinking user centered design" ~ Anyone seen this one? Thoughts?

It seems to me to be just a rehashing of some of the others, citing Apple as one of the examples.

Grand Majority of movies suck arse - is there a role for UX in cinema?

I'm constantly astounded at the increasing inability of "successful" movies to tell stories, build characters, and make an actual point.


I'm a firm believer in narrative - essentially a story needs to have a point (of some sort) - otherwise it's fluff-tastic.
