I am an Interaction Designer and Researcher and have been with Cornerstone on the Development Team since July 2008. I specializes in user experience and interface design, thrifting and antiques, and marketing intangibles/ideas. I'm a percussionist, beer brewer, and lover of all things musical. I strive to design beautiful and interesting products that transform the ways we work, live, and experience information technology. I received my B.S. in Informatics in 2006 and my M.S. in Human-Computer Interaction Design in 2008, both from the Indiana University School of Informatics.

As any User Experience professional does, I like to talk about touchy/feely things such as experience, emotion, empathy.  I'm stepping onto a soapbox to say it…  I believe that the most important thing a business can do is put Design Thinking and User Experience at the top, an important job function of nearly everyone. I believe that dedicating the most resources to improving our understanding of what it means to create "an experience", finding ways to evangelize UX and more broadly, design thinking, to all leads to better products, happier customers and employees, and success for any business.  Today's post is all about how you can participate in understanding experience.  The methods I will describe are accessible, easily understood and attainable.

Hi there, follower of Cornerstone and travel professional! I’m Kayce Reed-Buechlein, a 28-year-old interaction designer and I’ve been with Cornerstone for nearly 4 years.  I studied Human Computer Interaction Design in the Indiana University School of Informatics, as an undergrad, I marched in the Hundred on the drumline carrying a snare (I tell you this because so much of who I am is due to my experiences with music), and I’m part of the great team of developers that bring you world-class travel tech solutions. 

I grew up in a small Indiana town founded by German immigrants, Jasper, and have been in Bloomington since 2002.  I’m passionate about the intersection of people, technology and design.   I believe that majority of design work in user experience is about recognizing generally accepted practices, understanding human traditions and tendencies… and always trying to add a flare of fun.  I work and talk fast, sometimes too fast so tell me to slow down if you ever meet me in person.
