Making Products Work for PeopleI have been defining software and hardware interfaces between humans and technology for over 20 years. It is my professional passion and excites me every day. It is a fertile, ever-changing landscape of work, because as new innovations arise in computing and materials, customer expectations keep rising at the same time.
I specialize in identifying opportunities for innovation with design research, and then applying interaction design as a distinguishing feature for competitive advantage. However, I can also help companies simply modernize their offerings, if that is all the business requires.
Although customer-centered solutions don't always fall into just one category or technology, here are four general areas where I can lead the design and innovation process.
- Interaction Design for the Web.
This category includes information architecture, content management system migration and component optimization, as well as iteratively prototyping and specifying online tools.
- Interaction Design for Applications.
This includes SaaS web apps, thin-client/thick-client installed solutions, and enterprise software.
- Interaction Design for Mobile Products.
This includes work on mobile web, as well as apps for iPhone and Android.
- Interaction Design for Embedded Systems.
This category includes handheld and desktop instrumentation, as well as networked sensing and monitoring systems.
