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 relies on individual initiative, contribution, sharing and self-organization as the primary means for us to achieve our goals.
IxDA is a group of individuals who are passionate about Interaction Design. In choosing to come together to advance the discipline, we have created a network: the IxDA Network.
The IxDA Network is composed of people and platforms.
