I got this news in my email today from the Information Architecture Institute.
The Microsoft Visio product team is looking for input from those involved in information architecture about how you use Visio in your work. I thought that some folks here might appreciate being able to give their tuppence-worth.
You are invited to participate in a short survey (3-5 minutes) that will help improve future Visio versions for creating user experience documents!
- create UI mockups, wireframes in your job,
- design user flows,
- use Visio for creating your user experience documents
The Visio product team wants to hear from you!
Participate in this short survey (3-5 minutes)
Feel free to forward this invitation to anyone who would be interested in this survey and help shape future versions of Visio.
I’ve been using Visio 2003 for the last 3-4 years mostly for designing basic wireframes, user-interfaces, process flowcharts and very occasionally (isometric) sitemaps.
Jesse James Garrett has a number of useful resources on his website: visual vocabulary for information architecture including a number of downloadable shape libraries for various applications (including Visio, InDesign, FreeHand, and OpenOffice).
The majority of my wireframe and design work I do in Microsoft Publisher, though, which I find quicker and more versatile. I’d be interested to learn what others use.
