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

Messaging when user does not have permission to edit some data

I'm working on an app where users have fine-grained permissions to edit
specific bits of data on a page (edit buttons appear next to each set of
data). The problem is, when users don't have the permission to edit the
data, then they think it's not editable - period. They don't realize someone
else in their organization might have permission to change it. Instead, they
call the app host's customer service.

What's a friendly, non-obtrusive way to let them know that even though they
cannot edit the data, someone else might be able to?

There are some sensitivities around this.

To hide or not to hide - resolution

Hi everyone

Thanks for all of the notes and suggestions. Its great to be able to put these questions out there and get such thoughtful responses! I thought I'd let you know the outcome of this one.

We're at the stage now where final decisions are being made on how to proceed with this, and we're going to go with a fairly informative and interactive approach. We'll have information about the advanced product available via splash screens during the standard installation process, and we'll have a link to upgrade information and purchase procedure (via a HTML page) under the help menu.

interface standards - the CE space

Dave Collins makes an excellent point regarding consumer electronics:
> In the case of stereo equipment, the companies are still jockeying for

> is still strongly perceived by the user to *be* the device.

IA Cocktail Hour Amsterdam --> UX Cocktail Hours Amsterdam


[apologies if you see this message more than once, and congrats on being in the right places ;-)]

For those interested in meeting fellow user experience practitioners when traveling in Europe (and obviously those that live or work close to Amsterdam) I'd like to point your attention to the following announcement.

Since 2001 I have been organizing IA Cocktail Hours in Amsterdam, about 6 a year. These events have always been frequented by a mix of people with and without the job title Information Architect, and with or without a strong focus on IA in their work.

Sketching & Prototyping Workshop IA Summit March 19th [PLUG]

Times running out and space is limited. So, you better sign up while
you can still get in.

Leah Buley of Adaptive Path and I are running a full day workshop at
the IA Summit on sketching and prototyping—you won't want to miss it.
It's the first time we've done this workshop together, but previous
versions of her sketching workshop and my prototyping workshops have
sold out. Now, we're bringing the best of both worlds together for the
first time.

What are you waiting for?
