I'm in product design. I dream up radical ideas, fit them into the business, gather requirements, design product features, draw up specs, then work with the dev team to make it, test it, and ship it.

For Me, Good Design is 5 things. Modular: elements can be re-used to build consistency. Flexible: modules can house many different types of content. Scalable: modules work with 0, 1, or 50 items. Fluid: task states and views flow in an obvious manner -- pushing the user toward completion. Simple: the UI employs the least number of steps and flourishes possible.

I've worked for BMW Canada, Microsoft, XBOX, Swedish Foundation, Frans Chocolates, Softcard, Precor, Gatorade, and a handful of other small businesses.
