JOB: Contract IA position at Staples

We have an immediate need for an IA to work on browser-based interfaces.

This is a short-term contract position (3-4 weeks) with the
possibility to convert to long-term (~6 months).

The scope of the work will comprise creating process flows based on
understanding gleaned from existing systems, prototypes, requirement
sessions and ongoing ethnographic user research.

IxD definition WAS Interaction Design forESLTextbooks?

Perhaps this statement encapsulates our disagreement. Just because I
believe that an Interaction Designer can be of value in most cases of
human interaction, doesn't mean that I think I am king of that

When a widget is just not right ( was RE: [ID Discuss] Re-orderingrows in a table.)

I agree Dave. And besides ... the checkbox idiom is exactly what's desired here.

Why in the world must the user be limited to selecting one row (i.e., in a radio button group) for the shift operation? And
would the rows thus selected have to be contiguous at the outset?

Re: [IxDA] Right-hand navigation

Yes we read top to bottom and right to left. When designed "graphically" we look around for primary information, or specifically what we seek.
Studies aside, and standards aside in a medium so very flexible and powerful, it seems that we over look the simplest case studies. We are capable of (on a good day) navigating our cars on roads with with both right side, left side, and overhead information.
Anything done well is worth doing especially if the case warrants it.(this bearing no comment on the signage in the US).

PC Suites and mobile handsets


Hope everyone is well. Apart from the lovely weather and all the hard work, everything is peachy around these sides of London. Got a new project in hands - the redesign of a PC Suite for a mobile company (discretion advised).
