I am attempting to track down a comprehensive list of design
consultancies, most specifically those which offer both interaction
design and visual design services, within the Bay Area. I know new
ones have emerged, some have thrived, while more than a few have
fallen by the wayside over the last few years.
Does anyone know of a up-to-date directory of vendors? If not, I made
a quick first pass of agencies off the top of my head below. Many
vary their degree of focus on Ixd, IA, UX, visual design and
development. I imagine there are a good chunk of advertising agencies
I am not as familiar with, but few seem to actually list Ixd as a
service. Actually, I'm most curious about any new small shops (3-5
people) as those tend to be most difficult to track down online.
