Hello! I'm Jessica Speigel and I'm an interaction designer. Depending on who you ask, this could mean I design anything from simple websites to benevolent robots, but these definitions are oversimplified. The way I see it, designers identify and address problems in order to meet the needs of people. Sometimes the need will be such that a single design artifact, such as a poster or book, can solve it. But these days, what often needs to happen is for the designer to think through how the user feels at every point of interaction and design a system around meeting the needs that arise at each step. The solution may involve many design artifacts, or none at all.

I have always been incredibly concerned with how my audience feels at each step of the problem and I think we designers would all do well to challenge our assumptions about the nature of so-called "classic" design problems and look at them in a new light by asking ourselves what our users are feeling each step of the way, and what gifts we can leave for them on the path from problem to solution.
