I'm a Swedish 3d graphics designer with photography as a hobby. And of course it helps being able to create your own textures for any digital use.

Visit my flickr page to see some example photographs.

comment What's the best way to allow users to reset their licence keys
@Andy As you say, everyone has lots of accounts, instead of thinking it might deter them think "they got lots, one more isn't gonna hurt". Everyone is used to accounts by now, and those same everyone survive on the password reset function. If all I need to remember is my email in the case of needing a key reset, that makes me a happy customer. Good luck selling your software!

@Fresheyeball Thanks! That is a very interesting resource, while it isn't the research I was looking for it is certainly in line with what the spirit of my question. Having been away to the other side of the planet for the past 6 months this intercultural aspect of user interface and user experiences have gotten a whole new meaning to me.

Indeed, symbolism and gestures, like thumbs up and similar are very very subjective, I take care to ask when I visit a new country or region. When I want to gesture "come here" I usually have the palm up and flex my fingers, where the Thai generally have the palm down, which for me means go away or stay away. Thanks for the link!

comment Are there any resources about connotations related to visual elements from a cultural perspective?
Thanks! Great read, and exactly the kind of points that have been floating around in my head, making me finally ask this question. I am assuming someone somewhere has done research on this and that my probing searches simply can't find it. There is a fair amount of info about Colors and their meanings, but not really other web-design related visual elements such as the top navigation you mention. But of course mirroring the navigation will force you to rethink the whole "make it always the same to make it recognizable", another aspect to this.

comment Why are progress bars horizontal?
I seem to recall a few old games (Nintendo 8-bit etc) that had loading bars "being filled up", from bottom to top. @Aadaam mentioned the cultural aspect, and indeed a lot of games back then were from Japan after all. However they use top-to-bottom for writing.
