"It's great to find a profession that aligns with my obsession for experience and visual design. Having a hand in larger, more creative projects and being able to make a difference in products has been very encouraging. While the industry is hungry for engineers rather than designers, I see demand for IxD and UX also increasing."

Interaction Designer at TMP Worldwide Advertising & Communications
in New York City, NY

"I love that my biggest strengths are my greatest assets as an Interaction Designer. My biggest strength is my organizational ability, so being an Interaction Designer made sense. I'm also very creative, so this role allows me to use both of these skills. In my experience, getting to the end product without going tremendously over budget is the most difficult aspect of being an Interaction Designer, so at times I hate that. It takes a lot of resources to create a web or mobile product or service, and most projects end up costing much more than was originally expected or budgeted for."
