Yesterday, I had an inspiration after a conversation with someone who was
trying to understand what I do and created a diagram that I just posted on
our blog explaining where my work fits in at a high level.

What do people think? I felt like something about it suddenly made clear
where we fit in when we work with companies to create products.

Julie, this is what I wrote on your blog (sharing here):

I think this is a standard model for many, but for the last 5 years
or so, I think many agencies and definitely many internals are also
idea generating arms of the process/organization. And by this I mean
that design research is generative in nature, and helps or informs
the creation of ideas.

further, I think "code" should be substituted with "engineering &
production" so that it can include non-software environments of
interaction design as well.

Hi Julie, so here's what I wrote on your blog post, to share with
others :-)

I really admire the basic simplicity of it, and I get what you're
trying to convey (being at the converging heart of it all), but I
always keep coming back to the Eames Venn diagram which pretty much
sums it up for me and is frankly very difficult to improve upon IMHO:

Of course, substitute his words with "engineering" and "QA" and
"Biz Dev", etc. all those various parties of competing/conflicting
concerns.

But what I really admire about Eames' is the note Eames wrote that
these areas are not static but always growing and evolving (hence the
organic, sketchy nature of his diagram) Also, his point that
%u201Cadding more clients add to the relationship in a positive and
constructive way%u201D which is vital IMHO.
