Re: [IxDA] How else can you say login and register

This is an unsubstantiated claim, and even if more apps use "login" than "log in," of which I'm far from convinced, the notion that users would be at a loss when encountering one rather than the other strikes me as silly.

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.

OLPC: Sugar Not So Sweet?

I'd be interested in hearing from interaction designers who have
played extensively with the new One Laptop Per Child UI ("Sugar").

I saw the first public demo of Sugar back in August at AP's UX Week:

but never really got to play with it.

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

Can an interaction designer creat (great) interaction without (great) visual design skills?

Hi all,

in my daily work as an interaction designer I mostly create wireframes and
support the visual designers in their creation of the visual design for
these wireframes.

I notice though, that there is a strong dependency on how/if the interaction
will work and the (eventual) visual design.

My question: can an interaction designer create great working interaction
without having visual design skills?

Kind regards,
Rein Groot

Current Design Topics

I'm preparing my design seminar for the Fall semester, which is a
masters-level course. The last time I taught this specific course was
2005. I assigned readings on the following subjects:

Design Certification
Offshore Outsourcing
Design & Business
Formal Education vs. Self-taught
Design Ethics
Design Leadership
Making a Business Case for Design
Experience Design

Many of these are still relevant four years later, but I want to keep
the discussions contemporary. If you were picking current topics for
students to read, write about, and discuss, what would they be?

Thoughts on checkbox controls in iOS7 Apps

As there is no checkbox control in iOS, it always become a bit of an issue on how to mimic that functionality in an app or in a mobile site. The Apple HIG is strangely silent on the issue, other than offering up a segmented control that will only accept a single choice. That's fine for a radio group, but doesn't work for something where you want someone to check a box before continuing, like accepting terms and conditions.
