  20. 20. help users to gain in expertise quickly
  21. 21. help users to create eye-catching documents in less time </li></ul><li>The design directives are to </li><ul><li>minimize clutter and maximize consistency (similar elements are grouped and positioned in similar ways)
  22. 22. minimize redundancy and maximize relevancy (required information is revealed on demand)
  23. 23. minimize recall and maximize recognition (visual decision aids are provided when they are beneficial) </li></ul></ul>

  28. 28. 'Fixed Label Toolbar' (the team's clear favorite) </li></ul><li>Daily meetings and discussions
  29. 29. Daily feedback to community at OOo Wiki
  30. 30. Feedback from OOo community via mailing lists/blogs

  48. 48. Fixed Label Prototype – 3D View
  49. 49. Prototyping – Insights <ul><li>Prototyping is Great </li><ul><li>Immediate and new insights, problems and ideas
  50. 50. Fast iteration of prototypes
  51. 51. Cool new ideas were born only due to do prototyping!
  52. 52. Easy to get feedback from customers and users
  53. 53. Should be done more often in the future! </li></ul><li>What Does Mid-Fidelity Prototyping Mean? </li><ul><li>People outside often think this prototype will become the next Impress product because most things are working. It is just a prototype to test the user interaction.
  54. 54. Furthermore Renaissance is about the entire OOo UI, not only Impress! </li></ul></ul>
  55. 55. III. What's Next
