Qualitative Research in NYC

Hey folks, what are your favorite qualitative research labs and resources in NYC? Saw an old thread for this with lots of broken links - also include resource links if there's a thread that I'm not seeing that has a solid list.

They can include any and all of these:

- screening + recruiting

- facilitation

- on-site facilities for 1:1 and/or focus groups

It's largely ethnographic to aid in the development of customer personas around a product's domain as well as brand insights on an existing product.

Mentors, IxDA NYC

Hi all, 

I am new to the field of IxD and would greatly appreciate a mentorship with an experienced designer. I know that the IxDA branches in Boston and L.A. have already started mentorship programs but, as far as I can tell, the NYC branch has not. 

Are there any senior Interaction Designers who would be interested in mentoring?

Thank you,


Peter March

Liz Danzico - Frames: Notes on Improvisation and Design

Social spaces, private spaces, unfamiliar spaces—no matter where, people can detect even subtle frameworks and etiquettes. As our relationship to products, services, and to one another has been transformed over the past few years, entirely new frameworks have emerged.

These conditions signal a shift. People are being asked to improvise, to frame their own experiences. The designer merely sets out opportunities for people to use—to perceive connections and take advantage (or not) of a framework. But how do people know how to improvise?
