Winners of the Usabilla Q&A contest

On the Usabilla blog, I answered reader’s questions about Interviewing Users. The best questions won a free copy of the book. Check out the questions, answers and winners here.

Elise: What are your best tips for handling low-energy / quiet interviewees? I wonder if my extroverted body language is making them shut down more! Also, I have R&D team members who love to be involved in customer-facing activities. What’s worked for you in training teammates in user interviewing?

From Dublin, the results of the IxD12 Student Design Challenge

Just over a week ago, we came together with our four winners for a great two-day masterclass, with guest lectures and critics (thanks to Steve Baty, Martin Colebourne, Dan Lockton and Fiachra Ó Marcaigh). We debated, brainstormed, discussed, and designed. And after class, the students went back to their hotel and worked and worked and worked.  As the conference itself kicked off, each one got up and shared their vision for the future of the news for an audience that included our awesome judges as well a heap of conference attendees. The judges voted, we tallied, and here are the results!
Grand Prize: Priscilla Mok

 

1st Runner Up: Diksha Grover

 

2nd Runner-Up: Siri Johansson

 

Honourable Mention: Jaime Krakowiak

And what did they win? A dazzling array of prizes!

Meanwhile, our winners have taken on @ixdanewsfutures to continue the discussion. Check it out!
