Hello Everyone,

I'm a 2nd year Graduate student for Kent State University currently earning my masters for Architecture and Urban Design. I'm very much interested in the Interaction Design field and the possibilites of crossdisciplinary projects between the two professions. I'm wondering who I could personally talk to for more information about the profession? I currently go to school in the Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative (CUDC) building in downtown Cleveland around Euclide and 14th.

I'm at the research portion of my work but depending on the project there can be consultation/installation possibilities by the design phase by January. If  anyone is interested or simply knows the right people to talk to, please let me know.

 

sincerely,

Amadeus Escudero

Hello Amadeus,

Feel free to contact me any time. I work in the interaction design field and also am the local leader for the Cleveland IxDA so may be able to connect you with someone whose experience is more in line with the path you wish to travel.

Also, I just happened to read this Tweet with link to more information about an Interaction Designer seeking someone to mentor:

Kent State has an Information Architecture and Knowledge Management department that relates directly to the Interaction Design field. There are many good faculty and staff members in that department who I bet would be happy to discuss your options. http://iakm.kent.edu/user-experience-design

Best Regards,

Eric Wiley

Hi Amadeus -- I'd like to talk with you. I am starting to learn more about urban design - so sorta going in the other direction as you (from user experience to urban design). The extent of my cross-over is limited, so far:

 

So, contact me if you are interested. Plus, you have folks in your own "backyard" at Kent State - http://iakm.kent.edu/ - who you should definitely talk with. I would start with David Robins and Karl Fast.
