"We recently asked seven teams in IDEO studios around the world to bring to life one of the core values that we all share and implicitly expect from each other."

A very nice series of IDEO values that make a lot of sense. 

Be still my heart…

“I definitely think great design is about solving problems, but if you are so functional about it, people won’t care. You have to do something emotive. You have to do something that makes them excited about this solution that you’ve just come up with.”
 Joshua Taylor, a UI Designer at Evernote. An interesting insight into the cross over of functionality and aesthetics. You need both. 

Grace in my ears at the rather magical Open Mic night at FEVA mission.

Interesting. The amount of money they have put into improving Centrelink is definitely interesting to watch. With government services you’re always somewhat sceptical as to whether they can be improved at all, even if they pump in millions of dollars. 

But they’re definitely being sensitive to their target audiences. Everything is so much more understandable through visual mediums, and even older, technophobe customers are likely to be put at east with a YouTube video. It’s a good thing YouTube’s interface is very user friendly. 

Providing a video tutorial for each step of using the Human Services website, especially in particularly frustrating points such as forgetting your password (which is what I’ve done which is why I’m looking at this video) is one way of making you hate Centrelink less. Which is good.
