Sketching before the Wireframes

Hi Folks,

I wanted to ask around on the process of creating wireframes for designing mobile applications. In creating these wireframes, should I work on paper before actually hopping into a drawing program to lay out these wireframes? I believe working on paper is faster and easier before laying out the wireframes for a project. However, the company I am working with, might be wondering if I am wasting my time. That I should be doing wireframes within the drawing program. What are your suggestions and thoughts on this issue?

IX / UX or UI designer?

Hi All,

All through my career, as a Graphic Designer I never explored anything other than graphic and print design. Now, I am interested and want to expand my skill set. I have no coding knowledge, but can understand HTML and css codings. I am not good with coding and at this point in my career, I dont want to get into it. I am interested to learn more about IX, UX and UI design. Wherever I search, I am not able to find any standard description or  defined career path for UX, IX  / UI designer.

Defining a UX vision

Does anyone have any samples of a good UX vision statement? Everyone
talks about how important it is to have a good UX vision, but I
can't find anything that defines exactly what a "good UX vision"
is. I've been trying to develop one from scratch and I'm not sure
how it should be structured or what it should contain. Should it
contain specifics like "we need a dedicated UX group in our company
that all our design teams can use"? I don't want it to be
product-centered, because we build a whole range of applications.

Technical skills of an Interaction Designer

Hi all,
as Interaction Designer I think it's a foundamental matter to have a deep knowledge of  "how it works behind the scenes" what we design for people to use.

The question is: which language (HTML, Java, Javascript, DHTML...) do you think an Interaction Designer should be fluent in and at which level?

Thanks,

Silvia

Partial Date of Birth on forms

We need to know the age of users and their children to invite them to take demo-graphically targeted actions on our site.

Privacy concerns are being raised around getting that specific information, and we're thinking of going with Month/Year instead of asking for a full DOB.

I'm suggesting we go with a dual drop-down interface showing months (January, February, etc.), and years (1993, 1992, etc., (users have to be at least 18, so starting there).

What questions to ask for a persona interview?

Hi,

I am pre paring to conduct an interview to create personas for a medical web application doctors and patients. This app is not built yet, and the feature set will be drawn from the personas -- which is why it's giving me a pause. I am used to writing interviews about usability, and always used to work with existing websites. I never created personas before, though I used them before, and I'm having difficulty coming up with questions to ask the interview candidates.
