Usable Help Resdesign

Gordon Meyer has just redesigned Usable Help. The new design makes extensive use of Tinderbox, and Meyer’s Notes on the Usable Help Refresh will make fascinating reading for many Tinderbox users.

His approach to experimental information architecture is particularly instructive:

Here's where Tinderbox as a content management system shone. I rebuilt the whole site dozens of times as I worked on it. Hundreds of posts, tens of thousands of words, all reflowed into the new design in a matter of seconds. I could literally, with hardly any investment of time, see how a design change would look across the whole site.
