As 100% of the web tends to be, this is a work in progress. This site is structured towards the corporate & in-house designer. The current plan is to outline web application projects and provide tips, examples, design patterns, and best practices for the delivery of “CTHINKER Fake APP”. More about this later on as I define the process.
The goal is not to go into details about the programmatic elements and database structuring of a web applications creation (although these things may be included). Instead, myself and our guest writers willÂ be focusing on the process that brings a web application design from the vision to the final core product. Along the way each example may have fake image samples, ideas, story requirements all building up to the culimination of the project.
So why do all this you may be asking yourself. Well to be quite frank nothing like this really exists on the web or in the blogsphere.Â Â I have also found that putting my own thoughts and ideas out there for you the user to dissect, criticize, and generally tear-apart will help me in my own efforts to become the best Analyst, Implementor & User Experience Designer I can be. My hope is that you too will gain and benefit from my mistakes or the mistake of others. Not to mention, I’ve been doing this web design thing for over 10 years now I hope I’ve learned something by now.
Please don’t mind the slowness in posts as I am still really defining how this site will present the material in question. And to those corporate designers & developers out there that happen to come to this site. I feel your pain!Â We the corporate designersÂ exist in a cosmic vaccum filled with business users, analysts, project managers, writes, re-writes, designs, and redesigns. It’s easy to let your designs and mind stagnate while tied and bound within a rigid corporate development team. Of course, it’s important that corporate designers maintain a consistent brand identity and user experience across all applications.
So if you are corporate designer. I invite you to sign up and letÂ healing the begin. For we are Corporate Thinkers!
