Hi IxDA,

Behavior is ramping up for 2010 and is looking for freelance and staff IxDs or IAs (it doesn't matter which you call yourself -- chances are you do the other stuff, too!). We're also seeking visual designers and project managers, as well.

For these UX roles, we're looking for practitioners with 3+ years experience, as well as senior talent with 7+ years design leadership experience.

Re: [IxDA] Axure... Thoughts?

In a similar thread, a new Mac OS X native application called Antetype just started beta testing. From their site[1]:

"ANTETYPE is a brand new, ground-breaking design application that supports user interface designers at every step of their work. Design beautiful interfaces, invent new widgets, style them and put it all together in an interactive prototype!"

I haven't had much time to kick the tires yet, so I'll hold my thoughts for now.
