I absolutely love the use of storyboards, I always have. The value of having something laid out in front of you end to end is so vast that it confuses me when people appear to either fear it or feel that it is a waste of time.

Here is a great video show the sketchboard method for web design.

Today I discovered UXBooth, which is also where I found this video. The video is accompanied by a really nice article with photos of the design process as well. http://www.uxbooth.com/blog/telling-your-websites-story-with-sketchboarding/

Really good video from HTC about the considerations and innovations they brought into the design and development of the Nexus Google Android handset.

Once again showing that working on paper first shines through to great design and even greater development.

User Experience

Heading down the rabbit hole into the cold waters of user experience development.

For the next month I will be researching and analysing web apps to further explore the fundamentals, principles and the art of UI Design and creating powerful UX based applications.

I have just read the first part of Better User Experience with Storytelling by Francisco Inchauste for Smashing Magazine which has provided a very strong introduction into the principles of story telling and how these can be applied to branding, and generating an interactive experience.

Other blogs which have caught my attention today have been UI-Patterns.com which has provided some great advice on using wizards and goal indicators effectively in applications and the psychological impact that this can have on a user.

Konigi in itself is a wonderful example of beautiful interface design, and regularly updates with examples across the web of both site design and application design. The real winner for me is that they tag each submission with specifics such as use of Header and Footer, or menu controls.
