Our projects

Building the beta

It’s been a busy couple of weeks on the essex.gov.uk project as we’ve moved on to building a working version of the new site. This post talks about how we're managing some key aspects of the development during the beta phase.

User testing: creating our own user panel

An empty user testing lab

I’m Narelle Ong and I’m the User Researcher in the Service Design team. It’s my job to help the whole service design team to understand the needs of our users, ensure we have these at the heart of our work, and that everything we build is robustly tested with them. In this post I’ll tell you about developing a pool of testers to support the work of the team.
