  • Illustrated Choices, Tidwell's "Designing Interfaces" (p. 233) - Use pictures instead of words (or in addition to them) to show available choices. 
  • List Builder, Tidwell's "Designing Interfaces" (p. 235) - Show both the "source" and the "destination" lists on the same page; let the user move items between them.
