Early sketch of Windows 7
In a presentation at last week's Mix 09 event in Las Vegas, Microsoft designer Stephan Hoefnagels traced the evolution of the company's new Windows 7 operating system.
"This was a pretty wacky brainstorm that we had early on," Hoefnagels told the crowd. But, he said, it wasn't just a bunch of designers going crazy. Even these early sketches represented a collaboration across the technical and design ranks. "In this brainstorm for instance, all the disciplines were involved...developers, program management, user research. Everybody was coming up with these crazy ideas."
