Name Top Agile UX Consulting Firms

Hello all,

I'm looking for a "short list" of top consulting firm recommendations (Boston, NY area preferred, but US-wide is ok too) to consider from anyone who has had direct experience working with such firms that have really proven their worth to introduce and foster transormative work practice around Agile UX for web design/development teams. To help frame the scope of the consulting, I'm envisioning a 5-8 day cross-discipline/stakeholder workshop and educational service focused on agile UX and collabortive web product design/innovation.

UX Roadmaps

I manage a small UX team within the Product department of a .com. As
part of the overall company strategy each department leader has been
tasked with creating a (gulp) 5 year road map of their respective
departments. I'm not a business school grad and have only seen road
maps and have never created one. Has anyone out there done such a
thing for a UX group and if so do you have any advice or resources
that might help me out.

I would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks,
Chip

good examples of online advertising

Hello all

I am looking for Interesting, fun, rich, interactive (anything really)
examples of good online advertising. I am designing a site that
requires featured space (ads to inspirational content) in order to break the
user's normal purchasing habits (in an attempt to increase average order
value)

Any examples of good online advertising?

(No static banners ads please)

Many thanks

Dan

Looking for an updated college list that offer Masters In Interaction Design / HCD - Etc..

I've been searching high and low for a good list of colleges that offer an all Online Only Masters in the UX, UI, Interaction design field.  

Anyone know of or have a list? There was one on here at one time but it doesn't seem to be update.

 

Thanks!

 

Also -  I updated my password on the IXDA site, and noticed that it violates the first rule of forms in regards to password. It didn't tell me I couldn't use special characters. Took me several times to get updated, before I just guessed that was the reason it was blowing.

Req: Reference on readability of centered vs left-justified text

Does anyone have a reference showing that left-justified text is more
readable than centered text?

Something like:
(a) an academic study or paper
(b) a textbook
(c) a well-known graphic design book

I've been googling for a while and have found many pages that agree
with me, but none citing sources. :/

How can I get the best out of a UX discovery workshop

I'm starting on a project in the New Year where the client has
arranged a 3 hour UX discovery meeting with 20 stakeholders right at
the beginning of the project before I've had any real time to do my
own research.

The client's objectives for the meeting are to define the personas
and user journeys and the first draft of the structure for the site.

After the meeting I will have an opportunity to conduct one-on-one
interviews.

The project itself is to develop a fairly laborious offline
application process into a streamlined online process.

Looking for Balsamiq expertise

I'm trying to use Balsamiq on a very large project and am frustrated by a couple of deficiencies.  I wonder if there are mods or add-ons that could help.

1. Balsamiq seems to encode project assets with relative pathnames; thus, if you move a mock-up you lose all your assets (even if they still appear in the Assets toolbar).  Anyone know a way to force it to use full pathnames?

Centred Layout Vs Left Aligned

One of those old chestnuts that keeps rearing its head in discussion with client and/or the visual design team.

Left aligned (fixed width) sites are evil right? ;-)

Anyone got any evidence to the contrary?

Love to hear your thoughts.

IX / UX or UI designer?

Hi All,

All through my career, as a Graphic Designer I never explored anything other than graphic and print design. Now, I am interested and want to expand my skill set. I have no coding knowledge, but can understand HTML and css codings. I am not good with coding and at this point in my career, I dont want to get into it. I am interested to learn more about IX, UX and UI design. Wherever I search, I am not able to find any standard description or  defined career path for UX, IX  / UI designer.
