Interaction Design is the Fastest Growing Design Field

Interaction Design is one of the fastest growing fields in design. There are several books (right), websites, organizations, and other resources for those interested in learning about interaction design.

Interaction Design (IxD) defines the structure and behavior of interactive products and services. Interaction Designers create compelling relationships between people and the interactive systems they use, from computers to mobile devices to appliances; Interaction Designers lay the groundwork for intangible experiences.

IxDA is an organization for interaction design. The IxDA Manifesto is " We believe that the human condition is increasingly challenged by poor experiences. IxDA intends to improve the human condition by advancing the discipline of Interaction Design. To do this, we foster a community of people that choose to come together to support this intention."

IxDA is an online network for interaction designers. With the help of more than 10,000 members since 2004, the IxDA network provides an online forum for the discussion of interaction design issues as well as other platforms for people who are passionate about interaction design to gather and advance the discipline.
