UX Trends Workshop – A Recap

The word ‘trendy’ usually brings to mind one of two things: older people trying desperately to keep up-to-date with current fads, or someone who has a willingness to follow, rather than lead. It’s true: blindly following trends – in your personal and professional life – because of your peers, colleagues or competitors is rarely a good thing to do.


Designing Chatbots: A Guide

When people think “chatbot”, it’s often not in a positive way. People conjure up images of themselves frustratingly sat by their laptop, as the conversational UI they’ve been speaking to replays the same error message over and over again.

User Perception Vs. Reality in Voice Controlled User Interfaces

Although they’ve been on the market for a while now, there was a huge push from Amazon and Google to get their ‘smart’ assistants – the Echo and Home respectively – in to our homes and lives this past Christmas, and Voice Controlled User Interfaces (VCUIs) / Conversational Agents (CAs) have been mentioned on countless blogs and sites as key trends to keep an eye on this year – including our own. The purpose of both the Amazon Echo and Google Home is to make our lives easier… but do they really?


2018: What’s In Store for UX?

Over the past year, we’ve covered a huge range of topics on our blog – from Bitcoin’s user experience issues to chatbots to how human-centred design could change politics. But what will we be talking about in 2018?

We decided to bash our Bunnyfoot heads together to predict what we think will be the key trends to be aware of over the next year when it comes to implementing a user experience – and how to make them a success.


Why Information Architecture is So Important in UX

You may not be aware of it, but you encounter Information Architecture (IA) many, many times a day, and the list of ways you do so is practically endless – whether it’s on road traffic signs, menus in restaurants, your online banking app, the sports results, and even reading the phone book (if you still use one!)!

But what really is Information Architecture?


A Straight Forward, Straight Talking Guide to Mental Models
