Feature-based design, according to the Onion.

It's an oldie, but a goodie.

I swear, I wanna read that at a poetry slam sometime.

Typical job listings

Look at how few companies are using the title "interaction design" in their
job listings through BayCHI!

Re: [IxDA] design exercises and/or portfolio review during interview

You're right on one level: if you're asking them to do legitimate work on the problems you are currently working on, then you should pay them for the time (whether you adopt their solution or not!).

But I think most of us would advocate for a sample design task not related to the specific work being hired for: we want to see how you attack a problem more than the answer you get. (Just like high school math class: show your work.) Let us see how you do things you do.

Showing a portfolio largely demonstrates completed work.

Anybody interested in an Agile UCD best practice sharing session in the SF Area in July?

Really interested in this, but I too am based across the pond.

Perhaps you could let us know how it goes?

Cheers
Richard

filters for a profile search

Hey IxDAers,

I'm designing a site that enables law firms to search law student profiles
to find job candidates, and have have to build the interface attorneys will
use to search the student profiles. I'm struggling with how to start the
search. Most fields have set values (state, law school name, law degree,
field of practice, state licensed in), and it seems we'd kick it off with
filters. There are about 15 such fields to search by, and we've got the
primary filters list down to 5 (those stated above). other filters will be
progressively disclosed.

A great designer & framing design

Hi:

Just read that Tim Brown will be in Singapore - http://designthinking.ideo.com/?p=506#content and he wrote:

"I am off to Singapore in a week for my first visit. I have been invited by the government to give a talk on design thinking and meet with various government and business leaders to talk about the role of design thinking at a national level."

Excellent!
