Forms design - I'm researching and need help

Where are we on forms design today?

How far have we come on designing effective, intuitive, intelligent web forms? I'm researching forms design, both best practice and the more innovative ones. But I'm having a hard time finding really good examples.

HiOscar the insurance company is one example with some innovative qualities and certainly worth a study. But I'm searching for more advanced forms with higher complexity.

Companies / Agencies that do service design or tangible stuff?


I'm at the start of my XDA path really, and am wrapping up graduate school applications. I'm really interested in doing tangible interaction and service design. I am wondering if anyone knows of companies or firms that do this kind of work? I'm looking to connect with interaction designers in LA who are also interested in this type of design. Thanks a bunch!

Conversation around the IxDA Awards

Here's the link to the short list and finalists and winners of the IxDA Awards:

Steve Baty during the closing ceremonies of the conference said that we do these awards and similar initiatives to create a discourse in the community about them. I know I have little conversations here and there about them, but I don't see it happening in a way that moves things; that impacts the larger group. So I'll put this out here.

Job titles - what's hot


I'm writing a job description for something I'm calling a "visual web designer" because the person would be doing visual design of websites and it's strong on the design side and less on the coding side and not a developer role. There isn't a lot of UX but there is a lot of visual design and production.

It includes:

Visual Design mockups for web app, marketing, mobile; Landing pages, banners, email newsletters, posting content in WP, some product design, production of assets, some html/css but not a lot.

Prototyping vs annotated wireframe deliverable

I am wondering if it is possible to create annotated wireframes with a browser chrome or a device around the UI that can be viewed in an annotated deliverable but then be able to remove the chrome/device in the prototype version of the same wireframe file. I.e. Maybe put the device/chrome in a layer that can be turned off when the prototype is generated? Anyone have ideas which programs may be able to do this?
