The Interaction Design Group’s (IxDG) purpose is to help improve the human condition by improving the quality of behavior of artifacts, environments, and systems. To this end, IxDG’s goal is to help Interaction Design practitioners (UI Designers, Web Designers, User Experience Designers, Information Architects, etc.) grow and flourish professionally by:
- Helping practitioners understand how the design of behavior fits into existing design and development processes
- Helping practitioners provide the highest possible value to stakeholders and users
- Helping to foster a vibrant community and to facilitate knowledge exchange between members
- Empowering and inspiring practitioners to discover, innovate, mentor, and evangelize the process, attributes, and results of Interaction Design
