Design in the trenches Chris Bernard, User Experience Evangelist, Microsoft

All the content in this presentation came from my hard working design peers at Microsoft, I didn’t do any of this work, I’m just sharing their good deeds. All photos in this presentation are from istockphoto.com unless otherswise noted and are used for educational purposes. For office, all of the principles, thoughts, etc. came from Jensen Harris. For Windows Vista, ideas came from Jenny Lam and Tjeerd Hoek. Do a web search on these guys (I suggest Windows Live Search <ahem>) to find out what they are up to today. They are all brilliant design peers and I hope this presentation helps you learn as much from them as I did. Please visit www.microsoft.com/expression and look under the knowledge center to fine a video of me giving this presentation.
