The tool that gets your ideas out of your brain and into product is the 'Perfect Tool' for UI design. Sometimes that is software, sometimes that a pencil, sometimes its a pen and paper, etc.
Thanks Elliot - will check out the article.
Yeah Oh Beautiful Beer has become pretty popular - even launched a book http://amzn.to/1TV0pjV - which is great to see.
I've been pretty impressed with some of the classic design work done in beer as well and have been collecting some pretty great labels from Belgium from the 80s, 70s, even 60s.
It is really great to see good design in this space now.
Hey Elliot - thanks for coming in for the chat.
I'm a pretty big craft beer fan and I know from twitter that you are as well . For years I've thought this industry was ripe for some great design and In the past 4-5 years we've seen some solid packaging and type work there.
http://www.ohbeautifulbeer.com showcases alot of good work and is very inspiring.
What are some of your favorites in this space? Design & Taste?

Yeah that was a good one - so much experimental design going on those days with folks like Mike Young, Mike Cina, Joshua Davis, etc. - missing it.
Nice post - its probably one of the reasons 37 Signals has attracted such talent that ultimately led to their success.
Invision prototype to Working prototype in browser would solve a huge problem and help alot of people do proper user testing on their designs. I really hope this comes to fruition.
Nice post, I will be interested in seeing how this pans out for you over the course of the year - please keep posting to DN on your progress.
I'd say a good start to your approach might be to contact these designers to see why they put these shots on Dribbble. Maybe the first Yoda shot was an exploration from a moodboard the designer created to show a client - the point is you have no idea why people put up a certain shot on Dribbble. Start with asking a question rather than that "...Useless Design..." blanket statement that you posted.
