Scott Handsaker has started a website that deals with userform design called User Form Gallery.
This site is setup to showcase the best in Userform Design (from both a useability and an aesthetic standpoint). If you are looking for ideas and inspiration for your next interface, then you are in the right place.
Business analysts of the world – rise up and create a beautiful interface! Don’t settle for grey!
I’m really looking forward to reading this site, because I’ve always thought my userforms are poorly laid out. One concern I have about Scott’s site is his apparent fixation with color (or colour, as he says). I haven’t read enough of Scott’s work to pigeon-hole him, but the quote above and these from today’s post
Apart from the default gray (yes, this is a pet hate of mine!)
Depressing grey – imagine staring at this all day long!
seem to indicate that any userform created in gray is bad. I have a pet hate of my own: color for the sake of color.
His posts RSS and comments RSS are already added to my Bloglines. I think the posts and discussions are going to be invaluable. Who know, in six months he may have me putting color on my userforms!
Great idea for a site, Scott, and good luck.
