I am trying to pull together a list of ux academic journals and magazines that not only introduce ux methodologies (both research and design) but also best practices. Off the top of my head, I can think of Interactionsand UX Magazine. Anything else that is worth reading? I am interested in both theories and case studies.
I'll be more than happy to share the results with everyone!
Fellow Designers, can we talk creative business career strategy?
Last week, a Bay Area ad agency hired me to "simplify the UI" of a project under the title Senior Interactive Designer. I expected two to three weeks of freelance work, but I didn't see day three. My conundrum concerns leadership.
I get the job and join a team that doesn't trust each other.
An article of mine was published by core77 yesterday and I'm interested in hearing your reactions. Does the article resonate with you? What did I miss? Get wrong/right?
Designers of interactions have the opportunity to move their purview
beyond the shallow plane of interaction into the design of systems,
organisational capability and culture; to tackle very complex problems
and affect profound and lasting change.

I manage a small UX team within the Product department of a .com. As
part of the overall company strategy each department leader has been
tasked with creating a (gulp) 5 year road map of their respective
departments. I'm not a business school grad and have only seen road
maps and have never created one. Has anyone out there done such a
thing for a UX group and if so do you have any advice or resources
that might help me out.
