We have some great events queued up for 1Q 2015. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us at ixdaphoenix <at> gmail.com. Date, locations, and details TBD.




Hear from the people who will be looking at your resume and evaluating your portfolio. This session will feature a talk from hiring managers and recruiters with tips, guidelines, do's and don'ts. We will end the night with a round-table with valley hiring managers who will answer your questions.

More details to come.




What really is the difference between a UX designer, an Information Architect, and a User Researcher? In this fun, interactive session we will be creating personas that define what our job titles are. At the end of the session you will know more about what each job role does and know how other people in the field define themselves.

More details to come.




Hear from people who have really interesting jobs, what inspires them and how they got to fulfill their dreams.

More details to come.

Just wanted to introduce myself :D

I wanted to say hi to everyone in the group. I am here in Phoenix have been an Art Director for 6+ years, a developer, and a designer among many other hats. Been working in the field as a graphic and web designer since 1998. I am currently getting my masters in web design and new media, focusing my studies on UX/UI design I am hoping I can help out with this group, or at the very least attend the meetings and be a positive and creative influence.

May's Event - Redesign Phoenix

Thanks to all that attended our May event! We had a great discussion and ideation on Phoenix that evolved into some potential side projects for members of IxDA an the community to work on. I've added some photos of the event to a new Flickr group I created. The link is on our local grou page as well as at http://www.flickr.com/groups/ixdaphoenix.

To keep the momentum going on this project, we may have a one off meeting the end of this month before our next regularly scheduled meeting in July. Please let me know if you are interested in attending.

IxDA Phoenix Update

I wanted to take a moment to thank all our members for bearing with us through the transition to our new home on the web. When I began IxDA Phoenix a year ago, I knew that our previous home would only be temporary, due to exciting changes coming within the organization as a whole. They have finally started coming to life with the redesign of the IxDA global site.
