How can we establish the best design under technological constraint ?

I am working with an approach of solving strategic design decision under various constraints. Usually there is always a challenge for design managers to establish a design concept however revolutionary it considered. Often these revolutionary designs can not be fitted in to the scheme of implementation due to various constraints such as technology revamping, large amount of framework re-engineering, engaging cutting edge skill workers etc. Finally these outstanding pieces of creative effort become an overhead on budget.

Why are personas written from the third-person perspective so pervasive?

First-person personas are more engaging, and by mimicking tone patterns, grammar usage and other linguistic characteristics that may be possessed by the persona would result in the ability to communicate more with less writing.

carousel nav best practices?

Client X, an editorial content site, wants a carousel on their homepage to display 4-5 content features.

Goes under the nav on the left side (2 columns wide).

Question: within the carousel module, should navigation among features be on the bottom (horizontal alignment) or on the right side of the module (vertical alignment)?

I do have an opinion, which I'll post after a bit, but am hoping for some validation ; )

thanks in advance

Attaching a video of yourself with your job application

Hello,

There are tons of UX, Interaction design jobs in North America and Europe. I have many times thought about applying for jobs in Canada. Since I am based in Europe the recruiter may not be able to "invite" me for an interview, so everyting has to be done via a long distance call.

My creativity lately wants me to send a video of myself where I present myself and maybe even record the current work location and get some recommendations from current colleagues.

The idea is that this videofile can be attached to the email along with my resume.doc file and cv.doc file.

How to get my company to understand the value of investing in UI/UX

I am in charge of a defining & launching a potential game-changing web-based service.  My company has a mixed history of launching products without putting the user at the center of the definition and design process.  The president has told me not to worry about validation (functional or UI) - "we'll validate after we ship, then tweak the UI based on the feedback".
