100 Ideas for Envisioning Powerful, Engaging, and Productive User Experiences in Knowledge Work [] is an online reference for product teams creating new applications for work involving thinking, with a heavy emphasis on visualization in the example domains used throughout: Clinical Research (data analysis visualization), Financial Trading (market analysis visualization) and Architecture (building information modeling visualization). Specifically written for use during early, formative conversations, it provides teams with a broad range of considerations for setting the overall direction and priorities for their onscreen tools.

The ideas and illustrations in the "Enhancing Information Representation" and "Pursuing Aesthetic Refinement" sections are especially relevant to this blog's focus.

The work is freely available by the creative commons license as a browsable website, as a set of highly summarized idea cards (PDF), and as a printable 143 page book (PDF).

Vu, the content available on the website is the same as the content in the .pdf book format. There is also a summarized "idea cards" .pdf format, which is intended for a quick overview or for use while envisioning new tools for thinking work.
