Software Websites: Box Shots?

Imagine you design Websites for software products. Your company's
products are compelling and well designed. What do you put on your
Website homepage? How do you fulfill your mission of distinguishing
your product suite when some of your products are similar?

To add more context, imagine you know that many of your customers
will download the software on the spot when they visit your site. A
few will order physical copies.

The defacto standard seems to be box shots -- thumbnail images of the
box the software comes in. Is that how you would approach the design?
Why? Why not?

Guiding an interface evaluation session

Dear all,

I'm planning a session with some users who are experiencing a problem with an existing complex editing interface (aimed at structured data capture). What I wanted to achieve is to identify where the key problems lie so I can work on a redesign: ideally via one to one sessions but this isn't possible as the team is very distributed so we need to do it as a group in a central location.

Re: [IxDA] Re: [IxDA] Re: [IxDA] Re: [IxDA] Simplicity is Not Overrated, Just Misunderstood

Hi Richard,

I was simply wishing to point out that buying in general is a situation where I think it should be reasonable to question whether the customer has sufficient information to make an informed decision. I would think it fair to assume that consumer electronics as well as as software, whether in web or not, are very difficult to judge without special interest to do so or previous exposure to them and their alternatives.

What comes to needs, if we explain everything by saying it satisfies some need, yes, we only buy things we need.
