As a self-motivated (and self-taught) designer with a desire to focus on UX, I’m keen on learning as much as I can. Fortunately, there is a plethora of resourceful content available. However, as the field itself can be broad and roles can be blurred, the initial process in determining which methodologies and deliverables to use can be disorientating. As I’ve continued to read and take courses, even participated in hackathons & the Startup Chile program, and attended meetups and conferences given by the field’s associations and experts, I’m grateful to the community for being so informative; yet, what I still found lacking was the opportunity to apply the knowledge learned while collaborating with others designers …until I found the UX Lab!
Introducing THE UX LAB
The UX Lab consist of GUIDED HANDS-ON workshop(s) working in teams with other designers, ranging from new to experienced, in a supportive learning environment warmly led by Meagan and Sean. The concept of partnering up with a startup to help them build a better UX design is absolutely brilliant. The ability to brainstorm with feedback and see the different approaches and proposals resulting in a real live solution implemented soon is awesome! A win-win for all: the startup, the designers AND the users!
During this series, we worked with Zoraab – a wonderful sister & brother team (Tina & Sunny) founded to provide an alternative to the bland sock lifestyle. It’s a beautiful site that not only offers an online retail section to purchase an eclectic assortment of mens’ socks, but a monthly “sockscription” service, where you never have to shop for socks again! A great concept, depending upon your needs and preference, different styles of socks will be deliver to you.
ZORAAB + THE UX LAB =
GET READY TO HAVE YOUR SOCKS KNOCKED OFF!
So happy to be a part of this 😊
I’m doing some initial user research for a side project I’m working on and sent out a survey to family and friends as one of the first steps. In the survey, respondents could opt-in to a follow-up interview.
I sent the survey to 27 people.
1 declined the interview.
That person was my mom.
Yep, that happened.
