TITLE:: Interaction Design Contractor


TEAGUE's Product Studio is looking for contract interaction designers,
who will work with our Product Studio team in Seattle for short and
medium-term (2-12 week) projects. These designers will have 3 or more
years of experience, be driven by the desire to work as a team player,
show a talent for creating unique, yet relevant, design solutions, and
be committed to our client's success.

As a contractor with TEAGUE's interaction design team, you will be
expected to:

* Participate in user and market research activities to understand the
needs and desires of your target audience
* Develop scenarios and storyboards to communicate design
concepts to team members and clients
* Design, build, and test interactive prototypes to iterate
and evolve your designs
* Deliver detailed information architecture and interaction
design specifications to the client


TEAGUE is a design consultancy on the ascendancy. Building on
more than 75 years of heritage, Teague has assembled a new and
inspiring team of product development experts from around the
world. We work on a wide variety of projects in the consumer,
business, and medical markets. Our process relies on the
collaboration of exceptionally talented individuals within
integrated teams to create products that resonate emotionally
and functionally with the target audience.


Before you apply, ensure that you:
* Have 3 or more years of interaction design experience, including
significant non-Web design work (desktop software design experience
is a must)
* Are experienced in designing both hardware and software user
interfaces (mobile device interaction design experience is a plus)
* Have a BA/BS in Graphic Design, Industrial Design, Computer-
related Design, HCI, Human Factors, or closely-related field
* Are an expert in the major graphics tools and at least one
prototyping tool
* Possess strong project management and communications skills
* Are willing to co-locate with our team in Seattle for the
balance of the project duration

We should get to know each other if you:
* Are fascinated by the design opportunities that arise at the
intersection of physical and digital media
* Live for ideation, but laugh at the jargon
* Obsess about generating design solutions that offer both
functional and emotional benefits
* Admire the work of Charles & Ray Eames, Doug Engelbart, and
Richard Saul Wurman
* See design as both a cultural and strategic activity

Free agents with both consulting and corporate backgrounds are
highly appreciated.
