Hoekema Design & Editorial (HDE) is the consulting business of Jim Hoekema, an interaction designer, information architect, writer and editor.
The content here generally predates 2008, when I put my consulting business on the back burner and took a full-time position at Accenture, in a group known as the User Experience Group, then Accenture Experience Agency, and finally Fjord. In March 2016, I stepped down from that role.
During my eight years with Accenture, I had the pleasure of working on 33 client projects, traveling to 20 cities, and designing for a variety of industries and platforms (including web, mobile, kiosk & car). Most of those projects were proprietary, but a selection of scrubbed remnants are in the "portfolio" PDF (right).
Meanwile, if you have 35 minutes, catch my talk about my first project at the Office of Charles and Ray Eames back in 1977-78, given at the Interaction 18 conference in Lyon in Feb 2018. (Scroll down about 10 lines to the "Art Game")
Career: In one capacity or another, I have provided interactive design, information architecture and usability services for:
Summary of skills and services:
By the way, sorry about the appallingly outdated, frames-based site design. Maybe one of these days I'll switch to a more fashionable mobile-first design with text in girant all-caps & centered over desaturated photos, with parallax scrolling, etc. Will take care of this as soon as I have nothing better to do.
