Search Pattern Library

In concert with the publication of our new book about search and discovery, I'm pleased to announce the launch of...


...a gateway to the Search Pattern Library, our colorful public collection of examples, patterns, and anti-patterns.

We hope you find these resources interesting and valuable. Please let us know that you think. Thanks!

[PLUG] We're Breaking Up The Band - UIE Web App Masters Tour


We're breaking up the band.

With one stop to go, attendees are telling us the UIE Web App Masters Tour is one of our best events ever. Application designers have found inspiration from our world-class experts. Fortunately, there's one more stop on the tour and you can be there too.

With each stop, the tour gets stronger and tighter and our last stop in Minneapolis on June 27-28 is sure to be our best.

Job outlook for prospective students.

Hello everyone!

I am a prospective student on a specialization course in interaction design. My background is in a general design programme (with a focus on graphic design) where I have worked freelance with games and apps. What I am interested in is how competetive the job market is out there? The kind of position I would love to have after my specialization course is as a interaction designer at a digital agency preferably in Stockholm - Sweden, London, New York or San Francisco. If anyone of you have any insights regarding this I would be delighted to hear them :)

IA Cocktail Hour Amsterdam --> UX Cocktail Hours Amsterdam


[apologies if you see this message more than once, and congrats on being in the right places ;-)]

For those interested in meeting fellow user experience practitioners when traveling in Europe (and obviously those that live or work close to Amsterdam) I'd like to point your attention to the following announcement.

Since 2001 I have been organizing IA Cocktail Hours in Amsterdam, about 6 a year. These events have always been frequented by a mix of people with and without the job title Information Architect, and with or without a strong focus on IA in their work.

Breadcrumb Trail Separator Terminolgoy

In the interest of a controlled vocabulary, what terms have you used, or do you prefer to use for the > that is placed between breadcrumb trail elements?

^ is a caret, but that isn't quite accurate.  "Greater-than sign" just sounds out of place.

Thanks in advance for your replies.
