In other very exciting news, I’ve been featured in Galen Moore’s Mass High Tech article New England software experts put UI/UX specialists on a pedestal.
I love how he describes the “new” importance of having a great product experience:
The increased demand for good design, which began with the iPhone and online social networks and games, has come to the call center and the shopping mall security desk. Developers must try to predict how a human will use even the most mundane applications. As it turns out, that’s not an easy thing to do. Combining user focus with a good aesthetic eye? Near impossible. The UI or UX designer has a seat at the head of the table, and companies are under pressure to fill it with the best talent possible.
Thanks to Galen for the nice write up and the fine folks at Viximo who recommended me for the article.
