The Design by Fire Conference provides a stage for inspiring professionals to share their passion for interaction design with peers, refueling knowledge and competence to cope with the challenges of IxD's professional practice.
The conference is named after Andrei Herasimchuk's weblog designbyfire.com. The name ‘Design by Fire’ is a variation on the expression ‘Trial by Fire’: a test of one's abilities to perform well under pressure.
In 2004 Andrei dared to present a redesign of Jakob Nielsen's website. Since then he keeps on challenging the HCI community to take interaction design to the next level. Andrei has delivered keynote presentations at the Design by Fire Conferences in 2007 and 2010.
Design by Fire 2011 is an IxDA conference organized by the volunteers listed below.
The Design by Fire Conference is facilitated by IxDA Nederland, a non-profit organization dedicated to the professional practice of Interaction Design. By organizing this conference and a bi-montly Design by Fire Café, we aim to advance the Interaction Design discipline.
The Design by Fire Conference — under the auspices of IxDA Nederland — is an initiative of Arjan Haring.
