Elements of Design is a design showcase that I think is a lot more useful in an everyday work environment than most of the others. Why? Because instead of showing us complete designs, Elements of Design showcases solutions to common design problems in a quick and concise manner. Among that are things like comment forms, date pickers, search boxes, pullquotes and headlines. They seem like small elements but often they are those parts of a design that take up the most time. I get caught up on these details a lot, especially when I’m trying to achieve optimal usability.
While I’m at it, I’d like to (yet again) recommend Defensive Design, a book that, in my opinion, offers a great deal of insight and solutions for bullet-proof user guidance.
