This month, Gist Design will be hosting IxDA Pittsburgh and leading us
in a unique, fun, and educational event. This is one you don't want to
miss, so get it in your calendar now.

Real-World Research

Designers know the benefits that design research provides in shaping
good user experiences for products and services. But practicing
effective design research for technology products in the corporate
environment (whether for start-ups or for international corporations),
requires ingenuity, flexibility, and a sense of humor. Want to try
your hand at it? Join Gist Design and other design colleagues for a
collaborative game of "Real-World Research."

Date: Wednesday, October 21.
Time: 6:00pm
Location: Gist Design
33 Terminal Street, Suite 425B
(South Side)

More details will be announced in the coming weeks. Please email jmoffett at inmedius.com
to RSVP, or visit our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=146471383291

See you there!

Design is a funny word.
Some people think design means how it looks.
But, of course, if you dig deeper, it's really how it works.
To design something really well, you have to 'get it.'
You have to really grok what it's all about.
It takes a passionate commitment to really
thoroughly understand something….

Most people don't take the time to do that.

- Steve Jobs

Simplicity is not the goal.
It is the by-product of a good idea
and modest expectations.
