A Night At The 2017 IxDA Awards Ceremony

Kevin Richardson, Ph.D. / Monday, February 20, 2017

As I wrote in an earlier blog, the Infragistics’ UX team was named a 2017 Interaction Design Association’s (IxDA) international awards competition finalist. It was a great honor to have been selected by the judges for our redesign of the complex, scientific software that controls Keysight Technology’s line of Atomic Force Microscopes.

As Infragistics’ user experience consulting group, the UX work that we do for our clients doesn’t always get the public recognition it deserves. While our efforts measurably improve the working lives of thousands of individuals across all industry verticals, our proudest achievements are often celebrated only by the project teams and the other UX folks here in the office. On the evening of February 8th, we celebrated with others in our profession!


No, we didn’t win but there is honor in being selected and no shame in being runner up against the best examples of interaction design from across the world! Plus, we did get to go home with a trophy…which made us feel better ;-)


Drop us a line if we can help you with your complex application!
