[JOBS] IxD & Visual Design, Maark, Freelance (Anywhere)

I have a cool project for a Fortune 1000 company that came across my
desk this morning. I thought one of you might be interested.

We'll be designing and developing a tool for creating custom branded
slideshow presentations that can be saved/exported for use outside of
the tool itself. Could be pretty fun to hash out.

I'm looking for a designer to take lead on both the interaction and
visual design over the next couple of weeks.

If you're interested, shoot me an email and let's discuss in more
detail.

Practical question on MS Visio stencils (or masters) ...

Hello everybody,

I'm currently working on a wireframing project of a web app on
Visio, which involves using stencils, because identical panels are to
be displayed on different Visio sheets. Thus I don't have to modify
each sheet one by one if a change has to be done : I only modify the
concerned stencil.

The problem I'm facing now (and I miss Axure for that) is that in
some sheets -depending on the context, like picking a radio button or
checking a box- a panel may slightly vary compared to its respective
stencil.

[JOBS] Dev IxD, Info Designer, Central NJ US, Infragistics, Full-Time

Hi folks,

It's that time again. :) We're expanding our Design team here at
Infragistics with some interesting and challenging spots that call for some
specialization in interaction design that is not standard.

Who is Infragistics <http://www.infragistics.com>? Among other things, we
make Quince <http://quince.infragistics.com/>, a RIA design patterns tool,
which we just updated to enable folks to have their own private libraries
and annotated examples.

Helvetication iphone game

Hi all,

I've been silently reading posts from here and really enjoy the
discussions and really glad to see the vibrant community growing.

Just want to post this to shamelessly market our own iphone game that
is geared toward designers that is called Helvetication.

It's a game that trains you to learn helvetica and makes you spot
differences between Arial vs Helvetica in split seconds.

To prove that you actually know Helvetica, you should definitely try
it out :)

anyone interested in a short project?

Hi all,

I just got a request from a client for a short project. And, I'm really busy.

Anyone interested? I'm happy to send an intro email.

Cool, good local MN client, they would likely be looking for more IA help in the future, too.

Magic Wish #2 for IxDA

Local groups are great. There are a lot of people who are working hard
to bring interaction designers and other interested folks together
locally on a regular basis.

Wouldn't it be great if local groups had a dedicated space that
brought events, discussions, and jobs into a local-centric space?
Wouldn't it be great if ixda.org could expand the ability of local
groups to communicate & collaborate?

Your wish is about to be granted:
http://www.ixda.org/blog /2010 /02 /new -website -launch -is
-imminent /

Launch is set for 5 days and counting!
