design-people in Denmark is looking for an interaction designer trainee from August 2010. design-people is a danish industrial design company, located in Aarhus, second biggest city of Denmark. The recent focus has been design of complex industrial software interfaces, for agriculture and power managemant. We recently hired a MMI psychologist, so this is also a great opportunity to get insight in this field.
I'm pretty green in interface design. I've read quite a lot but
often sit down to start a design and have a complete block. I realise
that there are a lot design patterns on the web, but it can be
difficult to really get a deep appreciation of them.
I'd like to build up some experience. Of course, the best way is to
'just do something'. However, students and newbies, such as myself,
perhaps don't have any real projects or sometimes long gap between
I was thinking about reverse engineering a couple of sites.
My first question on this platform. Well here it goes:
I am restructuring my Experience Design courses for 1st and 2nd year
bachelor students of Security Technology and I would really
appreciate your input. I've already renamed the course "Design for
Security", because it seems to convey the goal of the course
So I want to use methods en techniques from the design discipline to
create more secure/safe environments. Information security is not
what the program is focused on.
I'm looking for some advice, examples or even recommendations of who might
be good at solving this particular problem for us.
In the context of a longish multi-page web form we have a need for the user
to tell us at a fairly granular level what their occupation is. the total
length of the list is long, more than 1,000 choices. The accuracy of the
answer is pretty important to our business as is our desire not to stop the
users flow through the application because of either the difficulty or
perceived intrusiveness of the question.
As the User Experience Lead, you will be a core member of our User
Experience group, a unique and small team of highly talented wizards
responsible for the overall user experience and creative direction of
our products. The UX Lead is a unique interdisciplinary role that
bridges the gap between our Visual, Interaction, and Information
Design Leads. Therefore, you are expected to have and demonstrate
proficiency in each area.
With so much to get done, every member of the team is encouraged to
participate in all areas of the group.
Please join us in welcoming

"Designing a Unified Experience: Bringing Interaction, Visual, and
Industrial Design Together"
Interaction design, visual design, and industrial design are distinct
disciplines for good reason: Each excels in different ways. Interaction
designers must be good at imagining structure and flow, which requires
strong analytical skills and a high degree of rigor, especially for complex
I am currently researching on a website with immense data and this
company being a corporate needs some good user interface that will
showcase this data, get more hits, have interactive elements, etc.
This software company has a 18 year history.
Can the IxDA community help me with a few things on IxD, UX and
(1) Websites that help me understand all the three things mentioned
(2) Website examples with good user experience.
(3) Website examples with bad user experience.
This follows on from a discussion I was involved with regarding
education for UX professionals. I'd be interested to know how easy
it's considered to move from one area of web work into a more
UI/UX-focused role (but still within the web industry).
I've read a couple of comments on older discussions that suggest
that it isn't that easy but I'd be interested to get wider
