Hello members,

the UX team is developing a mobile site (not responsive).

I, as a online campaign coordinator have to cut down content from the current website.

Results of the IxD Survey

Here are the results! Thanks so much for the great response. One
thing: I wanted 50 responses and somehow SurveyMonkey let 51 through.
At any rate:


Very interesting results. I'm sort of kicking myself for not adding
"contextual inquiry" to the list of user-research methods. Several
people added it in the "other" category. :)

Thanks again!

Bringing your attention to something that impacts all of design (education)! Opinions, thoughts?

Georgia Tech is currently planning to eliminate the undergraduate
degrees in industrial design, building construction & architecture in
favor of a generic BS in Design. If implemented, the change will
likely impact all design education as schools, looking for ways to
cut costs, follow suit.

Several design educators & professionals from across the US & Asia
have voiced extreme concern and endorsed the cause.

Please help us reach our goal of 1,000 signatures!
