Champions Online's user interface and its Google connection

Dave Murray is the UI director of Champions Online, although this isn't his first gig working on a user interface. Before he came to work for Cryptic, Dave was part of the team that developed Google's Gmail interface, so you can imagine he's got some experience. He worked on that project for two years, and that time spent seems to have taught him that less is more.

Our experience with user interfaces have proven the simplicity-to-powerful ratio to be incredibly important. In our time with Champions Online, the powers window and its ability to sort through the huge list of powers fluidly has been a prime example of this philosophy. We already knew that someone over at Cryptic knew what they were doing with the UI, but it's good to have a name so we can say thanks to Dave. Thanks Dave!
