Hello NYC IxDers,

It's time for another IxDA event! This month, Avenue A | Razorfish's
Andrew Green will talk about Interaction Design on platforms beyond
the web. If you'd like to attend, please e-mail nyc-rsvp at

Thursday, May 29th at 6:30pm
Location: Times Square, details provided on RSVP (e-mail nyc-rsvp at )

Interaction Design as Sculpture

So far, we have created mountains of Wireframes, Feature Specs,
Personas and Scenarios to get the job done. But we are now at a point
in Interaction Design/UX where we need to consider more than just
designing usable, useful products and services for the web. People now
have higher expectations for transparent, intuitive and simple ways to
interact, research, shop and decide. At the same time, CEOs are
starting to look at us to solve their hairiest business problems.
Easy, right?

Andrew Green an Experience Designer at Avenue A | Razorfish, will
explore these new challenges and explain some fresh ways to think and
design for them including ideas on Mobile Convenience, Emotional
Findability, Interaction Manners, and the general need for all
Interaction Designers to stop making sculptures.

About Andrew Green:
Andrew Green combines a background in technology and an obsession with
design to craft out innovative user experiences and digital strategies
for clients including Ford, Lonely Planet, Yellow Pages Australia and
Microsoft. He is an evangelist of interaction design and its potential
to help transform businesses and create new 'user experiences' for
consumers. Andrew can be found leading a team of Information
Architects, Content Strategists and User Researchers at Avenue A |
Razorfish in New York City. Otherwise, he's at home in Melbourne,
Australia barracking for the Collingwood Australian Rules Football
