How much design research do you really do?

Does your workplace walk the user-centred design talk?

 I am investigating the gap between the user research that digital designers and product owners would like to do versus what actually gets done on a typical design project.

Why you should sponsor Interaction 13 (#ixd13)

Is your company recruiting designers? Will they be in 2013?

Did you know that the best way to get on the radar screen of the best potential recruits is to have a booth at Interaction 13?

Is a site accessible if it requires JavaScript?


The Target.com website blocks users who don't have JavaScript enabled. If you turn JavaScript off and visit the Target site, you'll see a modal dialog warning you that "Target.com requires javascript to be enabled." If JavaScript is off, you can't dismiss the dialog box.

It would never have occurred to me to design a site that way, and I've never considered the accessibility implications of such a sweeping move. Is this kind of a website accessible?
