FB does usability

FreshBooks was recently featured alongside Adobe, Microsoft and resident Toronto design genius Jon Lax in an article about Rich Internet Applications (RIA).

Above is a photo of the FB team doing a usability test with local designer and prospective customer Andrés Aquino of The Creation Process.

In unrelated news, note the heavy sweaters in the photo…this was taken in January. It was probably -20 C that day. It’s 30 C in Toronto today and we’re in shorts, which has got me thinking about the impact of heavy clothing on the FreshBooks user experience, but I digress…
