User experience demands an analytical, data-driven approach. Long gone are the days of personal preference dictating the look and feel of your brand's digital presence. Done correctly, crafting a user experience will give your customers what they want when they want it, delivered how they would expect it.
As a UX design agency, we've demonstrated a proclivity for delivering great user experiences to our clients for over 17 years. We've curated countless low-fidelity wireframes, outlined umpteen user journeys, and produced an abundance of powerful personas.
Whatever your needs, we are primed to deliver, and exceed the results you desire.
Invest in user satisfaction. Technical performance = make it fast. Perceived performance = make it feel fast.
We focus on the user's goals
In an increasingly mobile-first world of multiple screen sizes, resolutions and software, the goal posts have well and truly shifted in regards to what great interfaces and user experiences look like. We are a UX agency that relish in the challenge of crafting interfaces that look as great as they work, regardless of device or platform.
We live and breathe for the development journey our clients share with us. We excel in implementing actionable insights from qualitative, quantitative, attitudinal and behavioural research.
Our UX architects
UX and UI services
Information architecture (IA) is the organisation and structuring of site content. We use an IA to map your brand identity in a way that captures the attention of your consumers. IA is the backbone to build upon for great user experiences.
We create fictitious personas based on experiences of the target audience segments. Personas help to theorise about audience interests and the platforms, services and brands they're already familiar with. It provides a bigger picture of a user of the system to help get better results.
We produce prototypes to get feedback early on in the design process. This allows us to be more creative and experiment efficiently with the usability of your website before taking it into development. We prefer low-fidelty prototypes which lack style, colour or graphs as they ensure that the main assessment focus lies in functionality, behaviour and priority of content. By stripping back the visuals we can better focus on meeting the user’s goals and not get distracted by colour or a particular image.
As part of our analytical approach to developing great user experiences, we combine data about current and prospective users via several sources. This tends to involve a host of qualitative and quantatitive methods, from focus groups and surveys to analytics and field research. Whilst asking people what they think and want is useful, often what they say versus what they do can be very different, so we don't like to underestimate the power of observation.
Your website architecture is incredibly important for both users and search engines. Working alongside our in-house SEO specialists, we create a sitemap which ensures users can easily navigate your website and search engines can see a clear hierarchical structure for crawling and indexing.
We write user stories to ascertain specific site requirements. They are statements written from the perspective of the user, describing who they are, what they want and why they want it. User story mapping ensures that requirements are informed by user needs, keeping our work user-focused.
User journeys depict the decisions users make and the journey they take through a site. We deliver this as a flow diagram for site tasks, showing the overall flow of the site. This informs flow and how site structure should work.
Building out the structure of your pages to ensure the user’s eye is drawn to all the right places is key to a successful web page. Again, we work closely with our SEO team to ensure we create wireframes which suit both users and search engines.

In today's world, your digital presence may well be fractured across several channels or platforms. In this environment, the necessity for crafting coherent and consistent user experiences has never been so great.
When looking to understand consumer needs, it's crucial to measure attitudes and behaviour through research. Whether we're gathering data with surveys or with field studies; we use quantitative and qualitative research to inform decisions when compiling customer journey maps, thus ensuring the user journey is of a standard that consumers have come to expect.
Our user experience research results in the crafting of invaluable user personas used to predict user habits and preferences, aligned with user motivations. We use this to exceed their expectations by crafting memorable experiences.
Our approach to information architecture and prototyping puts interactive wireframes front-and-centre of our UX and UI process. This allows us to enhance solutions at a stage where they're malleable. This ensures that our finalised solutions works for and engages your users; as opposed to just looking good.
There will always be scope for your website to perform better than it does currently. With solid KPIs, we apportion specific segments of web traffic to concurrent proposed solutions. We provide A/B, split and multi-variant testing to validate performance increases before investing funds into the work.
We are an award winning UX agency based in Bournemouth, but we provide UX services across the whole of the UK, from London to Liverpool.
User experiences and user interfaces aren't just about websites. We encourage companies to reflect on their business beyond the website. Instead, contemplating how putting the user at the heart of the business could result in new, attention-grabbing, digital experiences.
