Picking up on this thread again (think it was being discussed here) another
term for "interaction design" is "intelligent design"
This came out of a discussion over lunch last week with one of our
interaction designers. As he was walking through how he applies design and
as I was talking about bridging usability findings with the design - he said
Don't know if this has been used before, but quite like it as it shows that
there is purpose and research behind a design rather than a mix of visuals
and colours that looks nice but perhaps has no real value for the users and
business with the aim of improving the user experience.
