My boss wants me to create a metaphoric interface for a website
(really!). He's from Natural Resources though. Our clients have already
created a prototype based on a metaphor and he wants me to improve it.
(Its a Natural Resource website and the Interface has the image of a
scenary that they created, with icons of camping, lakes, hiking etc near
I'm planning to convince my boss/ clients that metaphors were disposed
ages back for informational websites. But it did get me thinking that if
are there any instances at all where metaphors work well for websites
other than entertainment purposes?
