the design process


Remember when you were fresh out of design school, and wanted to change the world? Well, that kinda doesn't always happen.

Hmm.. experience speaks. BTW is this the recent experience or is always the case? ;)

Aditi said...

Thanks!

Sn said...

good one...

but as an eternal developer , i think 'design' and all is nothing but frills.. :P
i mean who cares how the applications "looks" ... it should "function" properly.. :D

Aditi said...

see, thats where the problem lies. Most developers think that. But you are designing for the users, not for yourself.
also design is not just colours..._sigh_
don't get me started, Sn :)

Aditi said...

@aakash: its pretty much always the case :)

This is my life!

Shoot me.

Aditi said...

@Saad: I think all designers could identify with this a little bit :)

@Anonymous: maybe a bit exaggerated, but its almost true !

And then the client like me shreds the app pointing it to not be upto the business requirement,following which the developers and designers duke it out in a no-holds barred bare-knuckle fistfight.
It all cools down after a still beatingheart is offered at the client's altar.

But seriously developers left to their own designs have saddled me with columns of links on a (sic) fluoroscent green background which could melt your eyes.

What the world needs (besides free chicken and love) is a saner approach to designing interfaces.

@ sandman: you are so right! That happens too frequently, especially in s/w companies...
