UI/Interaction Designer name dropping

When it comes to software interface design, in your opinion, who is doing amazing work? I’m on the hunt for some great talent to consult with us here at SolidWorks on a future product. Any suggestions would be appreciated.


perhaps look to some of the folks doing the some good web applications, firewheel design (www.blinksale.com) or 37singnals perhaps?

cg would certainly know names rather than company’s. Try asking the guys over on the Nielsen Norman group (http://www.nngroup.com/) too.
