  • UX for Non-UXers

    City Interaction Lab has developed a series of introductory UX workshops aimed at those with UX responsibility but lacking any UX training.

    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.

  • Our work

  • Testimonials

    • The Interaction Lab were hugely supportive before and during our two day hire. We had a complex technical set-up that was non-standard, but they met every requirement. We couldn’t have wished for more.

    • I booked the City Interaction Lab to conduct usability research for a client. We used the lab for a whole day and found the facility to be tidy and well equipped, and the service we had from Stuart was fabulous – he made sure we were well catered for and that all our participants felt comfortable and welcome. Our day went smoothly, we got some great product feedback and test results, and my client left very happy. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stuart and the City Interaction Lab for your research.

      The User Story
    • We were incredibly impressed with the team’s professionalism and attention to detail. We found the whole experience invaluable and could never have predicted the changes we needed to make to our website. I would highly recommend the Interaction Lab.

    • We recently worked with The Interaction Lab to test a new website we had created for a Government agency client. The quality of work was exceptional, as well as the speed that they were able to turn around our last minute brief. The Interaction Lab were able to provide a full 360 service. They added value from the start by fleshing out our original brief and testing plan, and were able to provide high quality recruits to participate in the sessions. Further more, at the end of the process they provided highly detailed and insightful documentation, to allow us to understand the session results and how to best implement them to improve our site. Highly recommended as a team to work with for usability testing.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • Using the lab’s eye-tracking equipment, and working alongside the research staff, we gained a greater understanding of the usability issues faced on our clients’ websites… and the information gained from the eye-tracking process was fed back into the design process.

    • We hired the City Interaction Lab for some user testing sessions in March 2014. The facilities were very good – as well as containing everything we needed, our client described the Lab as ‘welcoming’. The team were very responsive to our requests and made sure everything was set up correctly for us. Overall, we couldn’t have been happier with Lab and the service we received.
