I just went back to studying a little more in an area I am particulary interested in: Graphical Interface Design.
I started the study of articles/papers on this subject way back when I started designing the first user interfaces in Visual Basic. The first "sublime quality" paper I found on the subject was: Macintosh Human
Interface Guidelines
http://developer.apple.com/documentation/mac/HIGuidelines/HIGuidelines-2.html

an excellent paper on designing clear, usable GUIs that give a feeling of comfort to the user. Don't get fooled by the name, even though it says Macintosh the principles are generally valuable and even directly applicable in web design.

For those really interested here is a few more links on the subject:

Have fun people :)
and make sure you make nice GUIs for a better world with less headaches... :D
