UX Studies: An Interview with Philipp von Kiparski

Philipp von Kiparski has a Bachelor of Arts in Information Design from the Stuttgart Media University, Germany. His degree was based out of the Faculty of Information and Communication. Philipp has just completed his second internship as an Experience Architect here in Australia, at Different. I thought it would be appropriate to kick off this interview series with a recent graduate of a course focussed on user centred design. This interview was recorded on 28 January 2010.

May 21 and 22 was the 7th webDU and my 3rd as part of the Daemon team who organise the event. WebDU is a technology conference, primarily but not solely, focused on developers. Amongst all the code and whiz bang-ery this year was an entire track dedicated to the consulting and planning side of projects: Team/UX (user experience). The room was packed for the whole two days.

What is a Web Producer?

At an IA-Peers Sydney meet up this week I discussed what it is that I do as a web producer. The group also chatted about the job titles Information Architect and Experience Architect. Anyone in this industry will know that job titles change all the time. This is something I would like to cover in this blog; speak to other professionals and get them to define their job title.
