Everyone,

Over my time in 'the field,' I have always felt passionate about user experience design, i.e. the visual, the interactions, the architecture, and the interface. I chased my dream to the valley just in time for the end of the party and see the bubble bust. Not being one to want my own business, I have to proudly say, I have maintained gainful employment during this entire period of time. Some of the work has been better than other but mostly nothing to write home about.

All of this and I still love what I do - solve problems within predefined boundaries and create real world solutions. However, I find myself looking for more than just gainful employment. I believe my passion / dream would be to create user experiences for personally researched information.

So my questions are...
1. Does anyone know of companies creating these types of products?
2. Does any of these companies have user experience designers?
3. What are the titles for these jobs?

Thank you all for your replies in advance.

Afternoon all,

A few folks have replied with questions. To explain further, I am
more interested in web re/searches (via Google or Yahoo) conducted on
a computer and how people choose to work with / store those results
for later use.

Do you have any idea who is working in this type of area?

Best regards,
Marcus
