Designing better experiences

A session at UX London 2013

Thursday 11th April, 2013

2:00pm to 5:30pm (GMT)

This workshop delves into the core principles of user centred design and how it can help designers, developers and product owners build better experiences for their users. Through hands-on activities we will explore techniques for implementing a better and more agile UCD process from researching and gathering requirements to evaluating and refining your designs.

By putting our user at the centre of our design process we can create better and more delightful experiences. Many organisations are waking up to the benefits of user research driven interaction and interface design. In this workshop, through practical activities and real-world examples we will teach you techniques for effectively gathering requirements and prototyping, testing and refining designs when faced with constraints such as budget and time.

You'll learn:

  • The importance of user research driven design
  • Striking a balance between user and client needs
  • Techniques for understanding and gathering user requirements
  • Participatory design techniques
  • Evaluating designs through effective user testing
  • Discuss the effectiveness of different methods of user testing including eye tracking
