Learn how Texturemedia's Interaction Designers integrate with all other disciplines to create award-winning interactive pieces. Josh Zapin, the Director of Project Management for Texturemedia, will share stories from his experience as a project manager working with the roles of interaction design, information architecture, and usability on projects ranging from advertising micro-sites to large-scale web applications.
