UX Design

Successful online communities are places where everyone is welcome and encouraged to share their knowledge, passions and pursue shared interests. Communities must be optimised for members, from new visitors to regular users right through to super users. We have refined our Community UX design process over many years, and we always ground it in three core values; everyone is welcome, participation builds trust and loyalty, and it should always be enjoyable.
