In principle, democratic voting should be one of the simplest processes in the world. Everyone chooses what they want, and everyone’s opinion is counted. The most popular vote wins.

Adding the "wow factor" to Eden Project
When Nomensa started working on a new responsive site for Eden Project (www.edenproject.com), one important aspect of the brief was to add some “wow factor” to the website.

What is perfect design? A new designer’s perspective
When we’re children we create purely for ourselves, experimenting without people's opinions impacting our designs. The next challenge we face is to create for others.
In defence of buckets
Scouring through UX blogs on the topic of menus, IA, or navigation you will find the theme of buckets.
A ‘bucket’ is defined as a menu item into which almost anything could fit – they are typically labelled with vague words like ‘Miscellaneous’, ‘Information’, ‘Other’ or ‘Stuff’. These have effectively been crucified as “the ONE thing you must never do”. So at the risk of being virtually crucified, I am here to defend them.
