As a follow on to last Wednesday's post on CRAPy design, check out this new blog, Interface | matters, devoted to user interface design for Notes and Domino - written by Chris Blatnick.
User expectations have come a long way since Notes first came out. Make your apps, even the simplest ones, look good AND be functional. Don't make them, what I call - Dugly -> Developer-ugly. You know, the yellow background color, just to have something, giant buttons placed haphazardly on a form, action bars that provide actions you actually aren't allowed to use, etc, etc.
