Designer/Developers in San Francisco Bay Area

Hello,

We are conducting a field study to gather information about how
designers (of any type) use web metrics to make decisions on product
design and development. We are looking for both designers working on
client work, or designer/developers working inside a company on a
single product. We would like to visit your place of business and
interview you for approximately 90 minutes. We are offering $100 to
anyone who participates in the study.

Re: [IxDA] Re: [IxDA] HTML 5 Design and Development Rock Stars Wanted!

Everyone aspires above their station (or should!). Most everyone exaggerates a big to seem worthy of that. Employers know this.

If most people exaggerate some, they can't tell that you don't. So if the roadies describe themselves as rock stars, what are they supposed to think a self-described roadie actually is?

Jazzy point for a UX pitch to a bank

Hi Group,
I'm doing a UX project pitch to a bank.  It includes going mobile.  Right now, our ppt. is a little flat and wondered if you all might have a jazzy, shazam point or two that has been effective.  Our case studies are solid but just no pop on huge ROI of why they need to sign up now (at least at my read of it).

This just in from Cnet...

"Macromedia drops FreeHand from bundle

Macromedia executives cited "extensive research with our customers" as the
reason behind the decision, and not its impending acquisition by Adobe
Systems--which current sells a competing product called Illustrator.

Success Metrics (was: Visual aspects of interactiondesign...)

MessageHi Frank

Please see my responses below... ***

You wrote:
Yes, most of us are after better products from a usability and visual design perspective. However, don't you think that all designs should be evaluated based on unique, pre-identified success metrics?

***Certainly, this makes sense.

For example, an interactive design submitted to Comm Arts is probably going to have success metrics skewed toward innovation in the visual design realm. In that realm, text on gifs *could* be evaluated as good design if extensibility, download time, etc.

Request for advice to undergraduate Industrial Engineers (Human Factors Stream)

HI all,

I am currently in my 3rd year in Industrial Engineering at University of Toronto and am going through the job hunt to look for a full year internship in the area of Interface design,  information architecture and usbiliherty analysis.

However Im finding it extremely frustrating that there are no (might be an exaggeration) internships out there for undergraduates. They all seem to require masters degree or experience.

an interface vocabulary

I'm developing a taxonomy with several vocabularies for a client. One
vocabulary is interface objects/GUI for web and software, so it crosses web
content, web application and client application terms. I was wondering if
folks would mind commenting. It's quite rough (and perhaps you might enjoy
it...)

I'd love:

new terms I don't yet have
comments on relationships (I.e. that's not a control, it's a X)
and anything else you have to say.

the notation is traditional LIS..

BT = Broader Term (I.e. parent)
NT = Narrower Term (I.e.
