Re: Color and Usability / User Experience

While I'm sure someone has researched how a particular shade of red improves conversions I believe that contrast and understanding how certain hues recede vs 'pop ', emotions of color etc. Smashing Magazine has a good color theory article that I will link to later.

IxD Managers (was: d schools)

This is where most will end up, because too often the next step in pay
grade is only achievable by moving into management.

This of course is a terrible idea because it takes the best designers
and promotes them into management, where they can't design.

But to become a manager, when "managing" is an entirely different
discipline and requires different talent, just to conform to a broken
system, seeking better rewards, seems like the wrong path to me...

I'm an IxD manager, and I still design. A lot. My boss, who is a VP,
also designs.
