NAfW

During a discovery phase Box UK worked with the National Assembly for Wales (NAfW) to redefine their web presence and shape their digital future.

The team managed product vision workshops and undertook user research to better understand stakeholder and user needs, conducting a number of activities bilingually to gain comprehensive feedback. The insight gathered informed a user-centred Minimum Viable Project aligned with NAfW’s core objectives, to help signpost a programme of future website design and development activity.

"From our perspective, the excellent work from Box UK helped us unlock a solution with our national teams."

NWIS

Box UK initiated a multi-stage programme of research and improvements to help the NHS Wales Informatics Service (NWIS) create a standard design, style and branding for their public-facing websites.

To build a picture of the ‘as-is’ situation, Box UK’s User Experience (UX) consultants conducted a variety of quantitative and qualitative research activities. From this, they then produced a series of design concepts to enhance the usability of the sites that were delivered to NWIS as a set of outputs that enable their internal team to apply a consistent look and feel to all NHS Wales sites, pages and content.

"Excellent training. The theories and principles were given practical context and we left with great advice that we could take away and start using immediately. I learned a lot."
