Sad you weren't able to attend the Interaction 09 conference in Vancouver
this past February?

Join IxDA NYC in welcoming visiting keynote speaker KIM GOODWIN for a
special New York presentation:

"Designing a Unified Experience: Bringing Interaction, Visual, and
Industrial Design Together"

Interaction design, visual design, and industrial design are distinct
disciplines for good reason: Each excels in different ways. Interaction
designers must be good at imagining structure and flow, which requires
strong analytical skills and a high degree of rigor, especially for complex
systems. Visual designers and industrial designers are masters of visual and
physical usability but are also masters of emotion: They know how to evoke
caution, attract attention, and instill desire for a product at first
glance. Users have just one experience of a product, though. All three
aspects of the design must work in concert, or the product will fail to
satisfy. Integration of the three disciplines is a central theme of Kim’s
new book, Designing for the Digital Age.
