Who We Are

IxDA Charlotte is the local chapter of the Interaction Design Association, a global organization dedicated to the professional practice of Interaction Design. 


We are designers, researchers, developers, strategist, content writers and more. We’re not a professional organization in the traditional sense: we don’t care if you call yourself an interaction designer or not.


We believe that the human condition is increasingly challenged by poor experiences. IxDA intends to improve the human condition by advancing the discipline of Interaction Design. To do this, we foster a community of people that choose to come together to support this intention.
