IXDAers, if you are looking for an intro level Design Thinking class, we
have come to your rescue! Send that person you are trying to bring around to
Design Thinking or using research to inform design. You could join yourself for a fun opportunity to chew on a
challenging design problem. Past attendees have included design professionals and others curious about Design Thinking. Bring some new tools to your problem-solving and
design toolkit along the way.
I just got a residency at a startup accelerator as a UX/UI product expert, but as I was only shopping around for internships and have no work experience in the field (which I made clear to them), I feel as if I'm in a little over my head. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Maybe by then the snow will be glistening, and we'll be walking in a wonderland - or maybe it will just be colder than a...we all know what. Either way, come join the IxDA group for some warm food and delicious drinks at Cooper's at West End.
I am at a crossroads in my career. I have been a UI Developer for 15 years and I am a capstone away from graduating with a masters in HCI. Should I look to internships as a way to get into a full time UX position or should I apply for entry level UX positions (as long as I can show related experience)? Internships seem like a great way to get introduced to a company, but I am worried that internships are only for people in their 20s. I am in my late 30s and the clock is ticking.
I have been asked to
(again) explain this difference at my work and am searching for a fresh
perspective on this conversation. Has anyone else here ever had to explain this
difference to others? What explanation did you use & did it work for you?
If you're using Notable (or other comparable services) in your day to day work, what are the obstacles you encountered during the implementation of it and how did you manage to overcome them?
As a UX consultant, I've used Notable since 2010 but I found it difficult to persuade stakeholders to trade emails for Notable. Notable (https://notableapp.com/) lets you take any interface screenshot, sketch or wireframe and exchange notes on specific details with your team.
What approaches and terminology do we use to talk to others about our day-to-day and long-term user experience work? How do we sell ourselves and get buy-in for our activities? Is there such a thing as too much transparency?
A panel of UXers from corporate, non-profit, startup and educational worlds discusses lessons learned from communicating UX work to internal stakeholders as well as clients.
