Devices & physical spaces

Design of devices

UX in devices is no different than UX in a digital interface - it needs to be smooth, efficient, effective and well designed.

We have been lucky enough to work on the physical design of a number of devices, including:

  • Radars
  • Sonars
  • Washing machines
  • Fridge/freezers
  • Ovens
  • Multimedia white goods
  • Remote controls
  • Mobile phones (working with Nokia)
  • Alarm systems
  • Wireless cameras

We can help you to improve the design of devices at any stage - from early prototyping through to final design. If you want to know more, please contact us.

Design of physical spaces

Good user experience is about movement. 

When you look at any system or software design from a UX perspective you are designing for movement; progression through funnels, through processes and pages. People navigate and move, and we measure that movement.

Physical spaces are the same. A UX process applied to them can measure the movement and flow of people, identifying where it can be improved. This can be particularly useful in restaurants, shops and in high traffic areas. 

Physical space design also encompasses the inputs and outputs during traffic flow - for example the design of menus and signs pre queuing and the design of messaging around delivery and handover.

 

We can help you to measure the performance of any physical space, to understand the impact of potential changes and to model up or implement improvements. Just contact us.
