Top design title in your organization?

I was wondering if IxDA'ers would share their views on promotion
paths in software design.

(I believe this has been discussed to some degree before)

I see two:

1) Chief of Design or Chief Designer or ??
2) VP of Product Design and possibly Chief Design Officer

The first seems more along the creative, individual contributor
track -- similar to Chief Architect.

references for designing international interfaces?

Hi all -

Wondering if anyone could recommend any good resources or give any
good advice on designing UIs with localization to different languages
in mind. There's a big difference in word length between Chinese and
German. :-)

Thanks -


PS: as an aside, if anyone knows any cross-platform GUI programmers,
my company is hiring.

Ignorance, or just poor terminology?

In the past, I have considered Palm to be a company that understands
and employs good design, both the industrial and interaction flavors.
I was disappointed to read this quote by there CEO:

> BARCELONA (MarketWatch) -- Palm, Inc, the maker of the Treo smart
> phone, will continue to focus on ease of use and reliability rather
> than design, Palm CEO Ed Colligan said in an interview at the 3GSM
> telecommunications trade show here.

Focusing on ease of use rather than design?

Creating a proposal for field research

Hey there,

I've been tasked with the job of writing a proposal to my supes to convince
the powers that be that field research will give real results and show true
value to all involved stake holders. I'd love to gain some insights from
others who had to do the selling of this great idea to people who just don't
get it at all.

Background: I work for a very business driven company.

October, when more people are back from vacation (so don't worry about
missing the first one).

Please send me private replies, to reduce traffic for our 2000+ other
