User Research

Even with an intimate understanding of your business, industry and the audience you seek to target, truly standing in the shoes of your users can still be a challenge.

So how do you make sure you have the necessary understanding of who you are building for, and what they need?

The answer lies in user research. 

At Box UK we have extensive experience delivering user research as part an insight-led design process, where we define both the information that’s required, and the best way to capture it.

With a range of direct and indirect techniques at our disposal, we’ll select the ideal combination of research methods to give you the objective answers you need to make sound design decisions upfront.

Quality insight.

When it comes to getting to know your users, spending time with them is essential. That’s why we use one-to-one interviews and group workshops to uncover the content, features and functionality that will serve, satisfy and delight. 

As well as finding out what users think, though, this approach also reveals how they behave -  highlighting the subtle motivational triggers and persuasive ‘nudges’ that may otherwise have gone unnoticed. By really getting under their skin, you’ll be able to speak to your users at a much deeper, more personal level - delivering greater value for them while improving performance for you.

Quantifiable evidence.

While talking to your users is an unbeatable way to gather rich, relevant feedback, for a truly holistic picture you also need to combine it with the facts and figures that matter. 

We use analytics reviews and surveys to fill in any gaps in existing knowledge, and confirm assumptions about user segments, motivations, expectations, context of use, preferred devices, and more. Enabling a large volume of data to be gathered quickly, easily and cost-effectively, these indirect approaches also illustrate behavioural patterns and trends that may have been missed with a smaller data sample - so you can be sure your digital strategy addresses any potential challenges, along with valuable opportunities ripe for the taking. 

Your are not your users. But with user research, it won’t feel that way.
