            Creative professionals such as journalists and copywriters are an important group of users who need to search for images as part of their work task. We describe the design and evaluation of a ‘high density’ image search interface targeted at this user group. We use a field evaluation together with a qualitative approach with creative professionals to gather feedback on the high density in-terface design. Our results show that creative professional viewed the interface favourably be-cause they were able to get a quick overview of research results. We make suggestions for the ap-propriateness of high density interfaces for different work contexts, and further work in terms of layouts of images in high density interfaces.
