UX FOR GOVERNMENT

What does it look like? In this fast moving world where the public want clear information, available right now, we bring together web/mobile application design as well as social media to improve the experience of digital public services. Here's some of the benefits of great UX for government.

IMPROVE DAILY LIVES

61% of people look for information on a government website. UX ensures your department provides information and services that are usable and useful to your audience. 

SAVE MORE MONEY 

By putting a larger emphasis on UX principles and practices, you can make iterative improvements and avoid costly large scale rework that doesn’t fit your users or departments goals.

INCREASE CREDIBILITY

Enhance transparency with your users by identifying and responding to their needs through conducting user research while still meeting organisational goals.

HOW IT WORKS

UX RESEARCH 

 What makes the users of your services want to click? We gather information about them, their needs and pain points. We then using quantitative and qualitative methods such as questionnaires, interviews, personas and usability testing, to create profiles you can act on. 

How do you encourage usage of your online service? We create wireframes and interactive prototypes, integrating branding, design, usability, and function, making your apps accessible and engaging to your audience. 

UX WRITING

What do you want your users to do? We use information about your users to craft engaging, concise words that guide them through your application and gets them to take action. From your website or app, to emails and social media.

LATEST CASE STUDY

Here's some high profile projects we've  worked on and the results they had...

FashionBrain Showcases - UI/UX Design & Development

The challenge 

The FashionBrain project is a €2.8m 3-year project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme.

The FashionBrain project aims at combining data from different sources to support different fashion industry players by predicting upcoming fashion trends from social media as well as by providing personalised recommendations and advanced fashion item search to customers.

We were tasked with the design of a website showcasing all these tools and techniques that is accessible and easy to understand for the general public.

The process

(design)  

1) Initial face to face meeting to discuss the scope of the project, as well as the layout and components of the design 

Output: Sketches of design drawn on whiteboard. 

2) Create wireframes that describe the layout and colour scheme of the site. Colour scheme based on the existing Fashion Brain style for consistency purposes.  It was decided to mobile version of the site was not to be surprised would be accessed by people on deslup.

Output: Hi-fidelity designs created in photoshop. Sent to EU commission for approval.

The process (development)

While the design did not necessarily need to be responsive. In case of the future changes. The site was a built on the back of a bootstrap template.

We used HTML5 and CSS3 for the entire website. Showcase images were provided by the EU commission. 

Results

Coded website approved by the research lead and the European commission.
