· You fully grasp of the theories, concepts, and methods of user-centered design and interaction design (controls, states, etc.) which you have applied in a variety of ways.

· You balance passion for your craft with a dedication to on-time, on-target delivery of work.


Qualifications:

· You have 2-5 years of professional experience in an agency or software setting or comparable education/work experience.

· Your expertise is demonstrated by a compelling portfolio that showcases your problem framing, research, problem solving, and visualization skills.
