Overview of experience design companies

I've been getting really into the stuff going on in experience design lately, which was probably spurred by my interest in alternate reality games earlier this year and the time I spent researching the Melbourne phenomenon known as neurocam.

I just lifted this list from Putting people first, more so I remember to look into them all in time and have it readily accessible. I also snagged his links to add to the side of my own here so I can sieve through them over time.

The list of experience design companies is growing longer and longer, so Mark Vanderbeeken organised it differently to include location information (most UX companies are US-based still):—
