Dashboard Spy readers find that the value of this Dashboard Screenshot blog can come in unexpected ways. They often come not to browse the works of others, but to find a solution to a very particular issue that they have. Perhaps it’s because they wonder if breadcrumbing works as a navigational technique, or if the color of their icons are the norm.
Once they get here however, they see that studying the work of others brings a clarity to their own designs. It’s by seeing what others have done, and reading some details of the projects, that they see that dashboard design is a discipline that uses a finite number of design patterns. By viewing the results of others, they can visualize if certain techiniques are worth pursuing.
So enjoy browsing this site. Think of the examples you see as Design Patterns and file them away for your future projects. Regards The Dashboard Spy
