| User ResearchW
Our skilled, experienced and enthusiastic team members provide user research and analysis services to help you develop the most efficient, effective, and satisfying products and services.
We make use of psychology, ergonomics and human factors, and design thinking and agile to create cutting-edge user experiences that will help you greatly increase your sales.
Using a variety of field studies such as on-site observation, diary studies, and in-depth interviews, we establish the true needs of users, and uncover why they behave in a certain way.
User Personas and Scenarios
With our work on user analysis, we provide an accurate description of the motivations, needs and pain points of users. We create research-based personas and scenarios to give your team an understanding of users to design a good user experience.
User Journey Mapping
By user journey mapping, we identify key events or activities associated with scenarios, and identify mental processes that users follow. This process documents where change is most needed in order to improve the product.
Through user testing, we help you diagnose weaknesses in usability and iterate as early as possible. We test users performing real tasks using your products, and observe their actions. We use lab-based testing, remote testing, A/B testing, or guerrilla testing.
Through participatory design, we actively include users within the design process. We ask them to create or adapt a design solution as they wish, typically using lo-fidelity modules.

When we have a task at hand, we normally find ourselves thinking about an irrelevant subject like our upcoming holiday or what we will have for dinner. This is quite a common situation and is called “mind-wandering”. In fact, studies show that the average person spends up to one-third of their lives mind-wandering. So, what […]
Urbanisation has become an inevitable aspect of modern life. However, since this contradicts with the evolutionary construction, there is no doubt that we are affected in many ways: physically, socially and psychologically. Many years ago, a research study by Kou and Sullivan revealed that as the city’s green area ratio increased, the rates of aggressiveness and anger among people living in that city decreased. A more recent study by Li and Li, on the other hand, highlights the relationship between the perception of feeling safe and green space rate. Using Google Street View images and 135 high-density residential, 149 urban public/institutional, 50 […]
