Recently, I have become fascinated by the dynamics of the creative process, especially between people. A bi-product of the last few years with my involvement in Graphic Mint and on the IxDA Board has been the sheer about of interactions I have had with hundreds of people revolving around creativity.

I’ve started to open the box over at the Graphic Mind blog, where I just started writing a series of articles relating to effective creative collaboration. It all begins with my first part which is all about open communications

It was fun having to delve into the UX of eCommerce for my talk at NCI on Monday night. Findings from my research underlined the diversity of multiplatform eCommerce and mCommerce options available today.

UX can play a big part in solving many of the problems with selling online be it through helping customers discover the offering in the first place, improving clarity around the description of the benefits and functions of the product or service, and by making the check-out process easy.

Bay Area friends, congratulations on your new Bridge. Cool time-lapse of the new 6.4 Billion Dollar “Bay Bridge”. 6 years of progress in 4 minutes! I have always been very fond of the Bay Bridge. I miss living in the Bay Area when I see this.

Séamus Byrne, UX Designer, Dublin proud of Defuse: Design for UseFive years ago my IxDADublin colleagues and I helped start up an Ignite event for Dublin Design Week called Defuse.
