Designers needed for usability study

From the User Research team here at Adobe:

Adobe User Research is looking for application designers, and we know this community of application developers likely has a network of colleagues and friends who fit that description. We have put together a short survey for designers to answer, and it can be found here

Of course, we know time is valuable, and as such, we will compensate application designers for their involvement in this process. After we review submissions provided via the link, we will contact a cross-section of respondents. If we meet by telephone for a 30 minute phone call, we will send you a $25 gift certificate for If we then meet in person for a 2-hour face-to-face meeting, we will give you $200. We are happy to travel for these meetings, so you don’t have to be in SF to qualify.

Please feel free to forward this information to any app developers (in the US, please) so that we can represent a wide variety of folks in this research.

Thanks for helping us-we couldn’t do it without customers like those who participate in this kind of research!
