My name is Ian Hooper and I’m a Sr. Interaction Designer at Autodesk. We are looking for people to participate in a usability session at our 210 King Street East office in the coming weeks. Both student and professional users are welcome. I am specifically looking for people that are either: 1) brand new to Autodesk Maya OR 2) brand new to Autodesk 3ds Max OR 3) have no 3D experience at all.
Usability testing is a process where we find individuals representative of the types of people who actually use our software and invite them in for a ‘sneak peek’ of one of our products, observing them using it and capturing what they have to say about it. It is this type of feedback that gets incorporated back into the design of our products and the end result is software that’s easier for everyone to use.
The sessions will be one-on-one and will last about 2 hours. They will take place at our 210 King Street East office during work hours. Participants will be paid a gift card honorarium for their time.
Anyone interested in discussing this further can follow up with me directly at email@example.com.
Thank you for your help,
