Feb 23, 2006: Design resources from the Design Council

About Design looks like a promising resource; the UK's Design Council has pulled together useful information on a variety of design disciplines, ranging from information design to automotive design. Each section includes a variety of useful components, including definitions, examples, quotes, trends, events information, FAQs, tips, and further readings.

As a UX person, I'm delighted. Although it'll be difficult to maintain evenly, it's a noble effort to aggregate a variety of design practices--and perspectives--in one place, and to do so with an especially practical bent.

As an IA person, I'll admit to being a little disappointed at how sparingly information architecture is covered. No mention of the IAI, nor even a single book on IA! ;-) But it's hard to imagine that an effort like this one wouldn't slight a number of disciplines; I hope that over time they'll plug the gaps.
