Design games

I've been running design games with my team over the last few months,
and wanted to share my experiences and find out what other things
people are doing.

The objectives of the games have been:

- Help better understand design process
- Improve design criticism skills
- Get better at designing under pressure
- Get better at designing collaboratively
- Mode switch - focus on something that's not related to our daily work
- Have fun!

The games are structured around a 20/20 rule - 20 minutes working in
pairs, then 20 minutes together as a group (six people total plus me).

The structure is a van

Where Does Someone New to the UX/UI Industry Learn?

Hello IXDA Forums I am a recent graduate of Illustration at Sheridan College in Ontario Canada. I am interested in the field of user experience and user interface design. It seems to combine art and technology really well. I am not sure where to begin my journey though. Where does one learn the software, theory and get the experience necessary to start a career? Specifically in Ontario, but Distance Education could work as well. Thanks everyone! Jonathan Barker

Pixel Perfect ppi

Fellow Designers,

What is the best way to design icons for multiple devices? Different devices (Andriod, Windows Phone 7) have different screen specs - each phone has a different pixel-per-inch resolution.

By what method would one ensure that icons look crisp across devices with different ppi?

Who Are the Consultancies for Design Project Managers in the Bay Area?

I recently moved to San Francisco from New York with 10 years of experience in project management for interaction / industrial design, and have a Master of Industrial Design from Pratt. I am looking for more experience in design consultancies or client-based design businesses in the Bay Area, but do not really have the lay of the land out here yet. If anyone has suggestions beyond Frog, Smart and IDEO, I would be enormously grateful.
Thanks for all of your recent posts as well.

From the description:
Much of what we know about innovation history is wrong. That's the
bet this talk takes, as it romps through the history of innovation,
dispelling the mythologies we've constructed about how we got here.
