Re: Designer mobility to management (was ixd curriculum)

Hi Prady,

Interesting post. I wonder whether a correlation between variables is being mistaken for a causal relationship between them?

For the sake of discussion, let's take as true your perception about the negative correlation between design education and movement into management. A design education background is not likely a cause for comparatively low rates of migration into management (not likely to "handicap" one).

user panels

Hi,

Have any of you been involved in the successful use of user panels/advisory
boards in a UCD process? If so, are you willing to share some details about
how it was used and what went well/poorly? My company has a customer
advisory board, but it's made up of executives from customer companies--I'm
looking to create panels of actual users and administrators.

Wireframes: Illustrator/Indesign question%u2026

One way I've gotten around this problem is to lay everything in
Illustrator out in a big spread, rather stacking content in layers. I
then place this file into multiple content boxes in InDesign, panning
and zooming to the appropriate locations.

Using Illustrator and InDesign together for design documentation is
often more trouble than it's worth, and I agree that you may want to
check out some other tool options. That said, I hope the solution I
mentioned is helpful!

Designing for devices like an ATM, cable top box, etc?

Right now I work for a consulting company designing (ux, visual, front-end markup) e-commerce sites, custom applications, etc. I like what I do, but often think what I really want to be doing is designing on a larger scale. I would love to re-design an ATM interaction, or the on-screen cable guide you use every day.

My question is, how do you start to make this transition? I am young, self taught, and have thought on and off about going to graduate school for HCI. However, I'm not sure that is the right direction for the goals that I have. 

Any thoughts?

Improving task flows

I've been trying to add more context to task flows.

I think more context is better, and I'm also gearing up for
documenting asynchronous web apps (RIAs and Ajax).

To add more context to task flows, I've differentiated between active
and passive tasks.
