Re: [IxDA] The PERFECT interaction or experience designer's workspace

My personal preferences (mostly built around what I've seen work well :-)

Personally I like spaces where the majority of people are sitting and working together around a project, with a few separate private spaces for people to go off and take phone calls or work individually.

> * Are clear-desk policies stiffling to creativity?

I'd say yes.

Is the iPhone hard to use?

Young children are accustomed to experimenting with their world via
touch (and putting things in their mouth of course) so the iPhone fits
into their normal mode of discovery. Adults by contrast have learned
other means of discovery that might fail them when they have only a
single button and a screen.

Corporate website redesign, where to put intranet access?

Perhaps call the employe login link: "Remote Employee Login", as
that sounds like what it does.

Instead of "Corporate Information", perhaps "About [companyname]"

I've seen the "graphics" section of many corporate web sites
called "Press Kit", "Media Kit", and "[companyname] In The
News", depending on what's really there, and for whom it's

informal cmu clan at interaction '11?

Farkas and I are making noises about a clan meetup, drop me email or message him on twitter if you're interested. It might be as simple as drinks one night or actually going out to dinner depending on how many people are around.

pattern or feature inventory

ia/IAs and d/Designers,
<no apologies for the cross-post>

Has any of you ever created a graphical inventory of features, design
patterns, or functional elements? If so, please share learnings or
examples. I'd like to hear what format you used, how you presented it, and
what worked or didn't?

I'm specifically considering an inventory of competitors websites. In this
case, if I cataloged patterns, I wouldn't be listing the explanation found
on a usual pattern library, but showing how they visually accomplish
something or behaviorally execute a transition.

Thank you.

IxDA in Manila

Hello All!

We had our very first F2F meeting here in Manila and I could say that
it had little success. Attendance was low, but I'm still optimistic
things will pick up soon. The Interaction Design community here needs
to be more united and I'm thinking of ways on how to develop our local
IxDA chapter.

I'd like to ask the community on how you were able to overcome
challenges awareness and community participation. Are there any
specific steps to take on how to go about this?

Feedback on my portfolio - industrial designer wanting to switch to interaction/visual design

Hello, I'm new here! I studied and worked for 1 year as an ID (with some projects in IxD and interface design), but now I want to make the switch to interaction/visual UI design. 

I was wondering if I could get some feedback on my online portfolio? I've been working on on some new projects that are more focused towards interface and graphics, as a lot of my prior work was more product/industrial design. The website is
