# JOB # Interaction Designer for digital photo application # Boston area # ThinkFlood, Inc

We are a consumer electronics startup looking for experienced help designing
interfaces for our first application. We strongly believe in simple,
user-centric design - so much so that it is the key feature of our product.
You will be a part of a team that uses cutting edge technologies and
produces innovative designs for both small devices and the web. We are
looking for innovative thinkers who can work independently and who will
report to the VP of Products and Design (yes, we have a VP of Design!).

Apparently, the signal bars on a mobile phone don't mean much

Is an interface component like this useful even if it is not very
meaningful? What if the signal bars were eliminated completely?

Is interaction design more than skin deep?

Of course it is. I hate these kind of annoying teaser headlines that the
print and broadcast media use to get people to read a news story/watch a
program. But here's what I'm getting at:

In the beginning was Interface Design. Then it was argued that it's more
than 'just' the 'interface', which regular folk take to mean pretty looking
screens -- that it's actually 'Interaction Design'; that we are interested
in matters beyond 'merely' the 'interface', and in fact we would like to
design the entire interaction process.

Log out functionality

Question on standards:

When users log out of an application, is it better to:

1. Give them an exit message, like "You have successfully logged
out"? (i.e., a positive indication that they are logged out)

or, what I would prefer:

2. Just send them back to the original log in screen? (i.e., log out
is implied)

Option 1 seems excessively bureaucratic to me. It's not like I'm
working with a financial database or other application with
particularly sensitive information where people want to be absolutely
sure they've logged out.
