The HCID Open Day is a free mini conference run by the Centre for Human Computer Interaction Design (HCID) and Centre for Creativity in Professional Practice, at City University London. This years theme is ‘Design at Work’ and we are pleased to have a number of big profile organisations sharing how they approach the design process.Find out more about the Event!
Wonder no more! We’ve made this short video explaining the Human-Centred Design approach we follow and showcasing some of the user experience techniques we utilise within our consultancy projects.Watch on Youtube
The goals of the workshops are to provide a common language for project teams, get staff up to speed with UX fundamentals, and introduce them to design thinking.More information on training

The whole team were really impressed with the UX workshops run for us by City Interaction Lab. We were hoping for a broad look at UX skills but with enough practical content for people to take back into their day to day roles as digital professionals, and that was exactly what we got. I’d recommend the course to anyone looking to make sure that their users are at the heart of what they do.
LEaD Team @ City University London
We approached City Interaction Lab to undertake some user testing to help us to provide a more consistent experience for students accessing resources and activities provided on City University London’s Online Learning Environment – Moodle. The Team really listened to what we were hoping to achieve and worked with us to identify the issues caused by current inconsistencies and focused the user testing on aspects of the system that we had control over and could change. The Premium facilities in the Interaction Lab were great and we found it really beneficial to be able to work as a group in the Observation Space as the testing sessions were streamed into the room. We received a comprehensive report highlighting the key issues along with a findings workshop where we were provided with an opportunity to ask questions and discuss ways in which we might effectively address these issues. Overall it was a great experience; we really appreciated the collaborative approach of Stuart and Liad who worked with us at each stage of the process.

On the whole we were delighted with your service. The Team was very fast at responding to queries and it was great that you could accommodate our extra half-day at such short notice.
The Interaction Lab team, using a very structured UCD process has defined and refined a very intuitive user interface which has gone down a storm with our customers. They helped prioritise the functional areas of the system and provided us with a much deeper understanding of our users. The Interaction Team has been a joy to work with. I’ve always considered the team as an extremely valuable asset to the project. They have been reliable, professional, educational and fun. Stuart invited me to join him and shadowing a user and to be involved in user testing. I can’t imagine many other UX agencies doing this. I have already recommended the team at the Interaction Lab for another project within our organisation. I have no doubt that the project would not have been as successful without the team’s input.
