Constructive criticism for this redesign?

I am not an employee of the company, had an interesting time trying
to maneuver around it this morning, and finally caught hold of the
ear of someone involved who wanted specific repsonse. What Spool Rules
(tm) [I just made that up, it sounded funny. I don't think Jared had
trademarked rules...yet] is this following or not following? Thanks!

Studio Fellowships


This podcast is really interesting to me. The idea that a studio would

interesting to me.

Should we have testimonials, from UX clients and candidates, on our website homepage?

Hello All,

At Bestica, nation's leading User Experience staffing company, we thus are in the process of revamping our website to convey our value proposition better to the UX community at large.

Thus, we were wondering if having testimonials from our clients and candidates on our websiite homepage be helpful to instill trust to the UX community in our services, or if it wouldn't really have any major affect to the viewers coming to our website.

Your kind suggestions on this matter will be highly appreciated.


Best Regards,

Work in groups or as individuals in your IxD work

I know that everything we do is collaborative in that we have to work with
biz & tech and often other roles of design like visual, copy, research, etc.

But my question is how often do you find yourself collaborating on group
work in your specific role as an IxD or UX designers?

I ask this question b/c when I look back on my work career there were very
few moments when I did work in a group.
