Recently we posted about our passion for designing the user experience here at Bloomberg. Well today, we are pleased to share one of the ways we are bringing that passion to a much broader platform. Building on our strong relationship with the Interactive Design Association’s (IxDA) New York chapter, we will be sponsoring their annual event and their leadership awards this year.
The IxDA network provides an online forum for people who are passionate about design to discuss issues as well as ways to advance the discipline. This community, started in 2003, has more than 70,000 members today.
“Bloomberg has been an essential partner for IxDA at the local level and a passionate supporter of the design profession,” said IxDA President Nick Gould. “We are thrilled to introduce them to the global IxDA community as the premier sponsor of Interaction15 and the exclusive sponsor of the Interaction Awards. We look forward to continuing to build the value of interaction design with them.
The 2015 Interaction Awards will recognize and celebrate examples of excellence in Interaction Design across domains, channels, environments and cultures. In 2014, the Interaction Awards recognized 27 projects selected from over 350 entries and from 27 countries.
Both the annual conference and awards will take place in San Francisco from February ¬9 through February 11.
“We are thrilled to be sponsoring this year’s event and awards,” said Fahd Arshad, Bloomberg’s head of UX Design. “IxDA is a passionate group of global professionals who are leaders in the field of design. Their mission is to improve the human condition by advancing the discipline of Interaction Design. At Bloomberg we fully embrace this concept and believe that through elegant design all things are possible.”
