Pacific Northwest IA conference and job announcement list

Hello all,
I've set up a list to announce conferences, jobs and any other NW
event that seems appropriate. f any of you are living in the Pacific
Northwest or have an interest in the happenings about these parts
feel free to sign up or lurk:


NOTE: This is a bit experimental, I'm not sure if there will be
sufficient traffic to really make this worthwhile. I figure there's
one way to find out - if it dies a sad and lonely death, so be it.

Need advice for web designer coming after 10 years break.

I used to be quite a successful web-designer 10 years ago (before we I got children and moved to another country). Now I plan to restart my professional experienced, whilst still working mainly from home as a freelancer. I used to work mainly in Photoshop, but also with HTML, CSS, JavaScript etc. So in general my task was to make the site look nice and practical, whilst leaving to others to make it work. As I said, I did know html coding, but this was not exactly my favourite thing.

ID-test regarding recruitment process

Hi gul and boys!

Im wondering how the design applications test look like?

Ususally when you are applying for jobs sometimes  after the interview is done; the second phase is about to do a design test right?  Now my question is:

How does it look like?

Does it happen that we need to sketch-visualize concepts-interactions? Sealed

I wanted to share an announcement from Dr. Liza Potts, the new Chair for SIGDOC, the ACM Special Interest Group for the Design of Communication. The board has a strong interest in expending the organization's profile in industry and gaining new membership and new vision.
