Story of an Intranet Redesign
Dr. Keith Robinson has written a story about how he and his team redesigned a hospital Intranet. He takes us through the whole process from the initial considerations to implementation. The nice thing about the story is that it includes all the subtle problems, which are common in web projects, but seldom discussed or theorized about, such as user having adjusted to the existing site, internal politics, time pressure, budget, and having to compromise with technology.

iHotelier: Demonstrating the Potential of Flash for Web App Design
From a design perspective, creating a successful hotel reservation system can be one of the more complex user experiences.

Christine Perfetti (UIE) wrote about a Flash-based hotel reservation system that has recently caught attention: iHotelier.

It demonstrates how Flash-based applications can deliver users positive experiences, where HTML, DHTML and even sophisticated JavaScripting leave off.

Case of an Entertainment Club Website
Faced with low conversion rates from online advertising, the DVD and music club Columbia House decided to redesign their site. Going through an iterative and user-centred design process, the redesign led to a 180% increase in conversion rates (buying customers). The improvements included:

- A one page sign up form
- A streamlined checkout process
- A reduced product selection that doesn’t overwhelm customers with too many choices
- A simple interface that enables users to quickly select multiple products with minimum page navigation and interaction
- An integration of the chart into the product selection page giving immediate feedback when products are added

Adventures in Low Fidelity: Designing Search for Egreetings
Cris Farnum’s story of a redesign of Egreetings proves the importance of testing early prototypes, by showing how even experienced interaction designers can be wrong and how we have to accept that usability tests can fail concepts, which we believe to be superior.

The article is also an interesting case on testing paper prototypes - or "tabletops", as Farnum calls it. I especially like their use of laminated printouts of screens, which the users can write on with a thin whiteboard marker.

Interface Hall of Shame - lotus notes
Lotus Notes is often a solution technicants and interactions designers hate due to a lot of limitations.

I just discovered the article "Interface Hall og Shame - Lotus Notes" which is an interface analysis of lotus notes.

Well, the article is a little old, but unfortunately it is still very relevant.
