Designing for a TV screen

I'm doing some design research for a client who offer a Video On Demand service in the UK. Currently, the service is predominantley available in a desktop browser environment. Sensible, they are now starting to get the service on to televisions via the slew of devices able to do this (games console, internet ready TVs etc...).

I've been asked to provide a 'best practice' design guidelines document based on existing IxD models to give them a strong base to start their design work. With particular interst in:

UI Design Pattern for, or a an example of, very large content text heavy websites

Hi everyone,
I am working for a consortium based institute that supports clinical
research in the area. We currently have a very text-heavy site with a
lot of content. I am looking into remodeling the website and am
wondering if we have any UI design patters for handling/showing
text-heavy content in a effective/easy/searchable manner ?
Also, are there any examples of sites that do this really well?

Thanks for your help.

How to get better results from developers

Earlier this week at the local Utah IxDA meeting and over the last
while at various places I've heard the topic of how to deal with
developers come up. I was thinking about it and realized I had a lot
to say about it. Sorry for the length :)

I currently work at a very small company, less then 20. But compared
to the other stories I've heard lately from Interaction Designers
like myself in Utah, our company gets surprisingly consistent results
from our developers in regards to design.

Recruiting research participants

My client is a news and entertainment site that is considering
expanding their focus from a single genre to covering a variety of
related/overlapping genres (sci-fi, horror, mystery, etc.).
Accordingly, in addition to their own user base, they want to conduct
research with fans of related genres. I'm looking for a firm that can
help me screen and recruit participants and handle scheduling
logistics. Would be great if they are in the New York area, but not
required. Any recommendations?

Need to learn Graphic Design -- Do something about it!

@robfay posted this link on Twitter and I think this list of free tutorials
should be required for all y'all who feel you don't need Graphic Design
Stuff. YES! at the end they get into areas that you should probably already
know (well my point is you should prob already know all of it). But with
lessons on type, grids and color it is really great. I think what is missing
is more than grids in creating compositions, but grids is a great start!

Half-day courses on Ajax and Card Sorting at HCI 2009 in Cambridge UK

(IxDA members within striking distance of Cambridge in the UK might be interested in the following.)

There are still places on the two half-day courses I am running at the British HCI Group conference in Cambridge on 1 September. They are 'Ajax Design and Usability' (how to get the most from dynamic web pages) and 'Innovations in Card Sorting', a hands-on workshop using examples from real web sites.

They are only £40 each, plus this year - for the first time - you do not have to register for the conference itself.
