I have a question for all you IxD experts that could really help me. I have just qualified from a degree in HCI, and am aiming to start a job in Interaction Design. I have a good grounding in general usability, but would like to find out more about good, practical IxD that would help me prepare for a career in this field. I know a book alone isn't enough, and experience is the most vital thing, but everyone has to start somewhere.
Are there any good books people can recommend?
Is there an IxD bible?
Is there a good book that describes practical methodologies?
Is there any book you can recommend that you find invaluable, or that you use frequently?
What would you recommend as a good introduction to IxD?
I realise people have made lots of recommendations in the archives, but I know that new books come out all the time, so would like the best, most up to date recommendations.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! You could really make a difference to my future career. Please help!
