Visual design internships out there?


My cousin is a junior in the San Jose State program in Graphics Design and
Digital media and is looking for an internship for the summer. Based on my
influence, he definitely thinks about interaction design issues as he does
his visual design work, but I would classify him as more of a visual
designer than an interaction designer based on his interests and coursework.

He's designed a bunch of websites for clients (he's had a web design biz on
the side for a while) and has been doing some cool coursework in Flash and
ActionScript --plus he's a great guy to work with in general.

My View of Interaction Design

Hi Everyone:

I've been an interaction designer for 30 years. It has been an interesting
experience to read all the posts on this discussion list about IxD and its
definitions. Some of the positions people take are interesting and mind
expanding while there are others that I disagree with.

I was recently involved in a discussion regarding the definition of UCD.
While that discussion did not converge as well as I had hoped, it did
inspire me to put down some of my thoughts about interaction design. I am
not attempting to create the definition of IxD - just to set forth my

You may be right that email is not ideal for "communities," but I'm not sure that the organization's goal of creating a community is what most people use this (or any) discussion list/forum for most of the time.

In-house design teams - what do you call yourselves?

I'm looking for ideas on what an in-house interactive/interaction/web design team should be called within a larger design group at a large (conservative) corporation. The designers will handle visual design, consult on interaction design best practices for applications, manage online campaigns, etc -- broad enough that I'm not sure that web design/interactive design/new media design really fit, but something like "Media Technology" or similar isn't right either. 

Any thoughts? 

thank you!

UCD Broken? I say "NO"

Maybe I should read the complete history of the thread first, but I
don't think the idea is dead, broken, or flawed. To me, UCD just
means letting user input (i.e., info received in form of a stated
requirement or request, as well as info gleaned from observations and
interviews) *INFORM* the process... not dictate specifics.

A good product manager (web producer, or whatever title he/she is
under) will have the skills and vision to guide execution in a way
that renders the best possible product.
