Jared Interviews Patrick Hofmann at UPA 2007 Austin and gets his insight on internationalization, visual communication, and getting writers and engineers to express themselves visually.

Show Notes

I had the good fortune of meeting up with Patrick Hofmann at the Usability Professionals Association's Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas. At any given time you may find Patrick in London, Sydney or Toronto. He travels the world working on design projects for organizations internationally, including HP, Nokia, Motorola, FedEx, and many more. The conference was all a-buzz about Patrick's sessions, so I cornered him and recorded a podcast.

In this podcast, we discuss,

  • Design deliverables and evaluations - gathering insight
  • What's involved in internationalization without words
  • Writers, software engineers, and others learning to express ideas visually

We had a great conversation, and I think you'll learn something. I did. As always, we welcome your feedback in the comments.
