For two days this week, the whole Bunnyfoot team came together to not only enjoy the hospitality of Sheffield, but primarily to learn from and share with each other. One of the featured talks of the training was our CEO Dr Jon Dodd’s presentation on the history of Bunnyfoot from its inception in 1999 looking to the future using ‘Business Origami’ to illustrate it.

You know when someone at Bunnyfoot comes to work and says “I had a dream about post-it notes last night” that they are probably deep in a project.


UX design and colour

It is important when choosing colours for a website to include UX Designers in the process. We are currently working with a client who recognised the need for our early input, including branding and visual style guides.


Scarcity in numbers

If there is limited availability of something, we assume it is more valuable, and we want it even more.


Acrylic Nails vs. Touch Screens

When considering accessibility issues of a website, rarely have the problems with acrylic nails crossed our minds.

Today we ran a lab test where a woman struggled to use her tablet due to her long nails (she uses a stylus at home).

A stark reminder to anticipate ALL the potential environmental conditions of test participants. We now have “styli” on hand in all of our labs.


Sometimes, the best interaction design, is NO interaction design

Recent user testing of a client website demonstrated an issue with a tricksy form control. We redesigned it to our satisfaction BUT in an epiphanous moment we asked if this control was necessary at all?


Einstein was into User Centred Design

When I teach courses on user centred design the delegates are often surprised that reduced development and design costs is a key benefit of the approach. This is important though because investing in the activities that really drive improvements in customer experience (such as customer insight research, mental modelling, prototyping and user testing) can seem onerous if you don’t appreciate this pay back.


It’s important to focus on what people do, not what they say: an example

We recently did usability testing for an organisation about which people have divided opinions – largely depending on their politics. For a few people (with initial negative impressions about the organisation), even after completing tasks with ease and efficiency they went on to slate the site and everything about it.


Creativity without considering usability
