The process of designing multi-user virtual environments (VE) is similar to the process of designing code or imagery in that it is necessary to passionately maintain a catalog of ideas and references. VE design combines these passions to construct a consistent graphical user interface (gui) with metaphors for exploration and self-reflection in a collaborative team effort.
