We are releasing an application next month.

I wrote the original design documents for the interface
(Windows 95/NT style) and have assisted the GUI engineer as
hands-on developer. This allowed me to ensure the quality
of the information embedded in the interface, from field
labels to status bar messages to online Help.

I also designed the icon set used in the toolbar and
developed the engineering requirements templates.
Plus, I am relied upon when usability issues arise.

With the move toward more information included in the interface,
I think the logical people to play a leading role in interface
design are technical writers.
