What is it about we IT folk that makes us so crap at interface design? Personally, I can sit down and crack out some sweet code without too much drama, but man I am shit at making the UI any good.
It’s not that it doesn’t work – it’s just that it’s not particularly pretty. Or intuitive.

You know, nothing personal, good coder, but what a magnificently moronic choice for a way to tell the user something has happened – interrupting them.
For me, I don’t really want to be a UI designer. It’s too subjective for me; English, for example, was always secondary to Physics. But I’d like to think I get some of those things right…
On that topic – I need a new design for the PeopleHub Payments website. If you know someone, let me know.
