On Monday 23 November 2009 the second Design by Fire Café will take place. Design by Fire Café is an informal gathering for (interaction) designers organized by IxDA Nederland. Each café will feature a short, inspiring presentation as a starter for discussion and chat.
Froukje Sleeswijk Visser is our guest speaker on Monday 23 November. During her PhD research Froukje developed a set of guidelines to translate the outcome of user experience research into useful input for a design process.
Alrighty folks, for some this is probably good news; for others,
you'll have to wait until I get my new blog up and running to hear me
rant about all things design related in the tech sector.
I'm signing off the list.
Why? I've decided to take a position at Yahoo! to help in the design
of their applications with a heavy focus on next generation products
and emerging markets. I'm leaving Involution Studios in the hands of
my more than capable business partner of five years, Dirk Knemeyer.
