or at least for an alertbox: DVD Menu Design (guest column by Don Norman, Alertbox Dec. 2001)
It’s actually refreshing to hear Don’s gentle informal voice. Jakob and Don’s writing styles are quite alike, yet the tone is very different. Don has a breezy quality– you half expect he’s sitting in your living room with you, explaining why the thing works or doesn’t from the couch. Jakob is the graduate teacher you’ve run into in the hallways between classes, and while he’s also human enough to tell anecdotes, he’s also always on the job.
Anyhow, good column. DVD design is clearly a messy new field, and opportunities for good interaction designers and UI designers shall abound. Scroll down to his six tips, at least.
