This practice has been debated for years. There are pros and cons to either
solution, and like every "rule", there are exceptions even if the practice
works well for you. The context, as usual, matters most.

Any thoughts on placement of company contact information?

Over the past few years, I¹ve been imploring smaller companies who have
brochure-ware sites or have a limited product offering to put their contact
information (address, tel, email, fax) and if need by, their support
telephone and email on the homepage. Usually, in the header or footer
depending on the overall site design.

Rapid Prototyping (was: Konfabulator)

FWIW, I thought I'd share several techniques that my firm uses for=20
rapid prototyping.

1. Visio. Since all our IA schematics/wireframes originate in Visio,=20
it's fairly easy to assign objects HTML links and export your Visio=20
deck as HTML. This is a great way to also test your IA thinking on test=20=

audiences and conduct wireframe usability reviews. Adobe Illustrator=20
and Macromedia Freehand can do similar stuff, but the true multi-page=20
Visio environment is easier to manage.

2. Flash. This is really our prototyping weapon of choice.

Vive l'ergonomie?

Hey folks -

I guess today's my day to open my trap on IxDA, which I haven't done in ages (*waving hello to everyone*)

So, question of the day: what can you guys tell me about the state of our field in France?

Back story: In my years in this community and on this list, I've met designers from many other countries, but never from France. And now I've got a new job building a design organization in a largely French software company.
