Bunnyfoot’s Aaron Young talks to BBC News on the demise of ‘hated’ Captcha verification system

Ticketmaster has announced that they are to scrap the much loathed Captcha verification system which requires customers to decipher a jumble of hard-to-read letters in order to prove they are human.  The system is designed to prevent  bots from trawling for tickets but has become one of the biggest irritants for fans. As these robots have become more sophisticated, Captcha has had to become more advanced in order to stay effective. But in the process, it has become more difficult for humans to understand.

As Aaron told BBC News:

“It is generally speaking, one of the most hated pieces of user interaction on the web. The major problem with them is that it’s not unusual for several attempts to be needed. So when people see them again on different websites they have negative expectations.”


Bunnyfoot’s new bigger, better London office and labs!

Thanks to the continued success of our Westbourne Studios office, we are moving on to something bigger and better. We’ve outgrown the space at Westbourne so need more, better testing labs and more consultant desks.

For months we’ve been on the lookout for the perfect location and we found it at St John’s House in Farringdon.

Top tip: Use personas to design with customers in mind

3 examples of personasMany of our clients use personas to ensure the entire team maintains a focus on the customer, whether they are wiriting content or designing new functionality.
Take it from Clare Harvey at The National Archives, proud winners of a Public Sector Digital Award for legislation.gov.uk, “If it wasn’t for Mark Green, our primary persona, we would have missed crucial opportunities to present information effectively.”

Bunnyfoot to concentrate on 4 English offices – Scottish arm to separate and rebrand

December 14, 2011
Posted by in News/ Announcements
Tags:

After a management buyout the Scottish arm of Bunnyfoot will rebrand as Nile and operate out of Edinburgh.

The core of the Bunnyfoot operation will remain unchanged and continue to run out of the remaining 4 Bunnyfoot offices in England but still with full UK and global reach.

Currently we have no plans to open any further offices in the UK, but are due to relocate the London office to accommodate our expanding London team and offer new testing and training facilities.

All the Bunnyfoot team wish the new company the best of luck for the future.
