[JOB] Lead Product (visual) Designer needed in NYC

Hey folks -

TheLadders.com (one of the most successful startups in NYC), located in SoHo, is looking for a Lead Product Designer. This is a visual design position and is full time, on site.

There are three basic requirements:
- killer design chops (and the portfolio to showcase them)
- an opinion (and the initiative to express and pursue it)
- an understanding of Interaction Design

Local (NYC metro) candidates are preferred but relo's will be considered (if you're awesome, determined solely by me :-)

Interested? Know someone who is?

UI patents

Hello everyone!

I have been mining the web via google for information about u.s.
patents granted for (graphical) user interfaces.

Does anyone have any knowledge of information repositories of ui
patents, critical reviews of these patents that would maybe
contain understandable summaries of the patents or other publications
that might summarize gui patents somehow??

Best regards,

UCD, UX and Usability Courses in London (3 for 2)

(Apologies if you receive more than one of these.)

Thanks to everyone who completed our courses survey questionnaire. Oliver Pink at SAP was the lucky winner of the Amazon voucher.

Based on the feedback from the survey, we've set up a regular programme of UCD, UX, usability and related soft skills courses in London. We may extend this to other locations if demand dictates, but we are always willing to run courses in-house or in specific locations if requested.

Analyzing usability testing notes

Hello folks!

I'm trying to find a better way to do usability test analysis.

My current approach is: after i finish a usability study, with 8 or 10
users, and collected my own and all observers' notes, I usually read all
notes and then immediately write down the issues I feel area appearing
more often (assuming my brain will remember issues that are repeated in
many notes more than issues than appear only once).

Now, how do YOU approach analyzing those notes? Reading and re-writing
by heart? Putting all notes on a wall and eye-balling?

use scenarios. Those can embody all of the UX research/rationale and also
how that translates into pathways in the site. You could also try site path
diagramming (see Wodtke p.
