Wireframes: Illustrator/Indesign question%u2026

One way I've gotten around this problem is to lay everything in
Illustrator out in a big spread, rather stacking content in layers. I
then place this file into multiple content boxes in InDesign, panning
and zooming to the appropriate locations.

Using Illustrator and InDesign together for design documentation is
often more trouble than it's worth, and I agree that you may want to
check out some other tool options. That said, I hope the solution I
mentioned is helpful!

Three kinds of design

I've been thinking on this for a while and I admit the idea's still
only half-baked. But I thought I'd toss it out to the list for

I think there are three kinds of design for product features (web site
features also, not so much with intranet features).

1. Core design. This is "the good stuff" that we all want to be
doing, that we have tools and techniques aimed to support (personas,
contextual design, et cetera).

HELP: Need to recruit quickly for user-research


I'm looking for someone who can point me to a kick-butt recruitment agency

We will actually be supplying a whole lot of the contacts and can supply you

# of Designers... on the planet.

Where can I find statistics on the global and US population of
Designers.. from architects to product designers to interaction
designers, etc? An intelligent guess maybe the 'answer'. Can anyone
lead me in the right direction? How many people in the world are
involved in some aspect of Design (almost everyone by definition, but
I'm looking for active professionals)? Statistics about the global
population of engineering-centric folks would be equally useful.
