Sitemaps and wireframes for RichInternetApplications

On a related note...you can use layer comps in photoshop to save "states", which is especially helpful in RIA design. Each layer comp captures visibility and certain overlay filters of layers so you don't have to create as many duplicates.

Why do we insist on placing the logo in thetopleft corner?

Hi - I'm new to posting to this list and have been an observer for a
while

Just couldn't resist on replying to this - the logo in the upper left
has always perturbed me and am always on every possible occasion trying
to rethink logo placement in context of branded websites and how can we
create a new presentation that evokes the brand where the obvious

Why do we insist on placing the logo in the top left corner?

Hi everyone. First post here (excluding the job post a few days back).
What I wanted to ask everyone here is why does the logo need to be in the
top left corner of a page? Is this simply a consequence of convention?
Have there been studies indicating that users get frustrated when the logo's
placed on the right side? Or is there a more fundamental issue of
usability?

I'm covering my bases in regards to:

- The logo being a home button by including home in the global nav.
- Making sure the design reflects the brand identity with enough strength
that in the event the logo's hidden (i.e.

Survey: Sci-Fi and Interface Design

Hi, IxDA-ers. I am currently writing a book with Nathan Shedroff regarding
sci-fi's influence on interface design (and design's influence on sci-fi). The
work will include critical analyses of popular and influential properties,
references to prior works on the topics, tracing of interface concepts across
various sci-fi properties, views of practitioners from both the CHI and
film industries, and lessons learned from science fiction that are applicable to
interface design.To that end, we invite the members of the IxD mailing list
to participate in the following survey.

Hi -

I have just been looking at my cell phone and realizing that a very
