A Matter of Documentation

Book cover of Communicating Design: Developing Web Site Documentation for Design and Planning 2nd Edition by Dan Brown w/forward by IXD chair Liz Danzico

Our gratitude goes to Dan Brown and EightShapes for giving copies of the second edition of Communicating Design: Developing Web Site Documentation for Design and Planning to our faculty and the department library.

In her foreword for the book, Liz Danzico notes, “As designers, it’s our role to issue instructions to those we work with. Clarity is paramount, whether we work as part of a team or a large organization with a process or a single freelancer working remotely with a team over Skype—we often use diagrams … to communicate our ideas.”

Students of interaction design who call on flow charts, concept maps, and wireframes during the documentation phase of design will surely benefit from this newest edition.

Thanks, and to all designers: get your diagrams on.
