[Sigia-l] Open Lead Visual Designer/AD and mid level VD contract-Irvine onsite only

Greetings All!

I’m reaching out to let you know about 2 open visual design contracts I have in Irvine.   These are onsite
only engagements so they are not able to entertain telecommuting.   

One is for a senior level Visual Designer/AD and the other is a mid level VD.  The description below is for the
lead role but the midlevel will be doing similar duties more in line with a midlevel skill set.
The Lead Visual Designer’s primary mission is to execute the visual development of key strategic
projects through scalable, consistent designs that deliver against our user-centered goals, brand
identity and business strategy. 
 Position responsibilities: 
*	Lead the creation and execution of visual designs for my clients online products and services, ensuring
they are appealing, engaging, and useful. 
*	Collaborate with other designers, copywriters, user researchers, product managers and developers to
articulate clear rationales for design directions and solutions. 
*	Advocate for appropriate visual design across the company and represent the design perspective in
cross-functional work. 
*	Derive visual principles from successful designs. Evolve these principles and communicate them for
other team-members to apply. 
*	Identify and exploit opportunities to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of my clients design
processes. 
*	Provide limited supervision to others through motivation, direction, review and feedback of assigned
tasks. 
*	Supervise work through the planning and scheduling of work, and the review and approval of tasks. 
*	Minimal overnight travel (up to 10%) by land and/or air. 
*	Performs other related duties as assigned. 

Essential skills, knowledge and abilities:
*	Professional experience collaborating in a team environment on large-scale Web site development
projects.

[Sigia-l] CFP Symposium on Usability, Information Design, and Information Interaction to Communicate Complex Information

Symposium on Usability, Information Design, and Information Interaction 
to Communicate Complex Information

February 24-25, 2012

East Carolina University
Greenville NC

Proposal due date has been extended to August 15.

http://workshop.design4complexity.com/

The future will see the design of information and communication 
technologies that serve ever more complex purposes and problems. For 
these technologies, creating user centered design is particularly 
challenging when users are engaged in sophisticated knowledge work and 
collaborations and do not want to become power users to conduct this 
work electronically. Goals of this workshop are to clarify what we 
already know about communicating complex information and clarify our 
understanding of what issues urgently need further research.

We hope to reach new insights about the current major research issues 
that need to be addressed and ways to transform research into practical 
applications

We want this workshop to maximize the exchange of information and ideas 
among the participants. The workshop will feature a highly interactive 
format with each participant giving a 15-20 minute presentation followed 
by a 20-30 minute discussion. We wish to encourage high interactivity 
and in-depth discussion about each topic.
