[EVENT] IxDA Pittsburgh - Wednesday, October 21 - Real-World Research with Gist Design

This month, Gist Design will be hosting IxDA Pittsburgh and leading us
in a unique, fun, and educational event. This is one you don't want to
miss, so get it in your calendar now.

Real-World Research

Designers know the benefits that design research provides in shaping
good user experiences for products and services. But practicing
effective design research for technology products in the corporate
environment (whether for start-ups or for international corporations),
requires ingenuity, flexibility, and a sense of humor. Want to try
your hand at it?

Flash can export a native iPhone app now

This is great news. Looks like a big corporate war going on :)

But for me, as a Flash Designer and Developer, this is the best news
I have heard lately...

I was just contemplating learning X-Code but now it seems life is
going to be easy :)

Dear CEO:

Hi:

Recently there have been a number of threads about how to present the
argument for UX design to a company. In response I have put together the
following outline for a presentation. What improvements can you add?

----------------------------------------------------------------

>>Value Proposition

User Experience Design is an enormous opportunity for our company. It will
allow us to be more competitive and more profitable. With the right strategy
it's straightforward to implement, inexpensive and risk-free.
