[JOBS] Dev IxD, Info Designer, Central NJ US, Infragistics, Full-Time

Hi folks,

It's that time again. :) We're expanding our Design team here at
Infragistics with some interesting and challenging spots that call for some
specialization in interaction design that is not standard.

Who is Infragistics <http://www.infragistics.com>? Among other things, we
make Quince <http://quince.infragistics.com/>, a RIA design patterns tool,
which we just updated to enable folks to have their own private libraries
and annotated examples.

Mind mapping a site map - how to turn it into a deliverable

We're mapping info architecture right now in a mind mapping tool (generates .mm files). This is for a content site (not a transactional site).
