The UK Usability Professionals Association (UK UPA) has been a source of Bunnyfoot discussion for a long time. There is so much potential when you are part of it to learn, network and grow but we have long felt that it seems more of the London UPA than actually UK spread. We have always tried in ourselves to avoid the London bias by opening offices across the UK, so maybe we are just more sensitive to this than most. We were thrilled when after many discussions about how we could help, a UK liaison role opened to spread the UPA outside London. We jumped at the chance to be part of it as we feel it will bring massive benefit not just to professionals, but all those interested in bringing a great experience to their customers across the UK.

Usability Snowman

Well, we asked for some snow donations on Twitter and they came in in abundance! One day there was not even a hint of frost and the next, we were ankle deep in snow, working from home, but still managing to inject some Bunnyfoot fun into the day with a “usability snowman” competition across our UK offices (I hope Hong Kong don’t feel too left out!).

2 hours, some snow and a little imagination produced an outright winner from Oxford’s Usability Consultant, Nick Antram. Here’s his entry…

Here is an attempt at a usable snowman. We talked to local snowmen users and asked them what they really wanted out of their snowmen and the overwhelming response of the 2 people we spoke to was that snowmen needed to be not only big fat piles of snow that were funny to look at, but useful too!

Popular suggestions were:

  • To have a flashing light on the top so users could easily see the snowman in a snowstorm
  • Have a comfy seat to allow users to have a nice sit down after struggling through the snow
  • To have a nice cuppa tea (when is this not a popular suggestion?)

So we sketched some ideas:

Well ok, just one

Initial sketches of a usable snowman

Did some anthropometric analysis and fitting trials:

Scientific sketches to make sure the snowman chair is viable

Which gave us the 95th percentile of users

Then we user tested it thoroughly in blizzard like conditions **

And this is the result…

The snowmatic ergsnowchair!

With some final user testing, we just knew it was perfect.

** May not have been user tested thoroughly


New office at Electric Works in Sheffield

September 2, 2008
Posted by in News/ Announcements

I’m really looking forward to opening in to our new office at Electric Works in Sheffield on Monday 2 nd March 09.

‘Sheffield?!’ I can almost hear you say,’ The grim Yorkshire city where they set The Full Monty?’. Yes the very same one and it’s come a long way since the coal mines and steel industry closed down for good; Sheffield has successfully reinvented itself a digital hub with a future the traditional industries could have never provided.

Sheffield has however not lost its love for Steel as can be seen by our new slide in reception ; )
