Axure Pattern Library

I've created a small pattern library for Axure containing some useful
widgets and interactions. If you use Axure, or would like to see what kind
of prototypes it generates, take a look:


Does anyone have their own patterns that they would like to post? I would
also be interested in knowing if anyone found this useful.

JJG's IA Summit 2009 Keynote

The longer that thread gets, the crankier I get, so I'm starting a new one
specifically to talk about Jesse James Garrett's talk at the IA Summit last
weekend. It's what he wanted us to do, anyway.

Hi all,
For once - a non-snarky Will post. As of this week, I have made the
complete switch to Mac - and after installing Omnigraffle (new OS, new

sitemapping), I am on the hunt for all site mapping and wireframing

Responsive Product Comparison Chart

We are currently working on creating responsive designs for a web site which provides/sells service-based products. The client wants the designs based off their desktop experience. One of the pages compares the service features in a side-by-side column format. Looks great in the desktop view but it not going to work in the smart phone view.

Standard font size

I know that there was a discussion on this list a while back, but I'd
love to get a more recent update as to what people feel is the best
'standard' font size for an average audience. We are currently in
a bit of a debate with a client about their 'standard' font size.

Their guidelines dictate using 14px Arial / 13px Verdana for content,
which we feel is too large. We feel that a 12px Arial / 11px Verdana
standard is more reasonable to most users (in essence, using the 75%
base font adjustment from the browser standards and then using ems
from that point forward).

Robust Flowcharts in Adobe CS?

I've been working as an interaction designer for less than a year (student, interning) and have struggled with finding a good tool to use for creating product flows.  Programs like Fireworks and Flash Catalyst are great for making clickable prototypes.  And programs like Visio are decent for creating flowcharts showing the overall organization of an application.  But the two remain largely separated.

Inserting jQuery into Axure

Do you mean integrate it into the generated HTML prototype, or into
the actual .rp file? I don't think you can do the second - and the
first is obviously a problem because your code would get overwritten
when you re-generated the prototype. I'd recommend coding an
HTML/jQuery prototype outside of Axure if the interactivity is that

1. You will need to setup a new account on the new forum. You can use your Google, Facebook, or Twitter accounts to sign up, or you can create a stand along account on the new forum.

Shoppingcart vs shoppingbasket

Hello all,

I have short question. Do any of you know of any good argumentation for when
to use a 'shopping cart' and when to use a 'shopping basked' (both image
and/or term) in an e-commerce website.

I myself would think that the choice would depend on whether you expect
people to buy a lot (cart) or few (basket) things from your store. Any

Kind regards,
