Yesterday I spoke with a software company that is strongly motivated to improve their interface design. They asked me where good software UI designers come from and who could I recommend to help them out.

From my little bubble, I couldn’t think of anyone to recommend outright. I know some good folks who are already employed. But a “go to” consultant? Not really. A school with good curriculum to scout at? Couldn’t think of one of those either.

So I tweeted to a sizable circle on Twitter. In response, I got less than ten actionable leads. I figure it’s time to cast a wider net.

Who out there is doing great UI consulting for software businesses? Who is doing UI training? Where is the good UI curriculum?

If you know of somebody, help me out and post a comment here—preferably with a personal experience. Thanks.
