Helping Teams Innovate During the Pandemic with User Research
We’re proud to have helped teams apply user research to new challenges over the last year. Here are some highlights from 2020 and early 2021:
Tonal — Journey Mapping
In the era of “workout-from-home,” Tonal’s home gym is taking off. Just before the pandemic, we went into customers’ homes to watch them work out — and helped Tonal create actionable personas and journeys.
NIH — Mixed Methods
Early in the pandemic, we led user research for a large NIH study on building trust to increase Black and Latinx participation in medical trials.
NAACP — Content Research
As the 2020 elections approached, we led content testing and UX testing for an NAACP program to boost Black voter turnout in November and in Georgia’s Senate Runoffs.
PBS — Usability Testing
As kids jumped online en masse, we led our first-ever usability testing with preschoolers, helping PBS to improve access to its digital platforms.
McDonald’s — UX Research
McDonald’s is piloting a major initiative as part of a new growth strategy. We shared insights from in-depth UX audits and usability testing across 12 digital platforms.
Gates Foundation — Content
In late 2020 and early 2021, we partnered with Provoc to support a study related to COVID-19 treatments. Our focus was digital content based on in-depth user research.
Reports Get Ignored. Team Sport Research Gets Results.
Most user research agencies disappear to do research and return with a big report that no one reads.
We do the opposite. We guide your team through a collaborative research and ideation process that we’ve perfected with Fortune 500 clients.
This team sport approach works wonders at driving consensus, action, and a user-centered culture. And as a fully remote company since 2009, we can do it all virtually.
We’re a nimble 8-person user research company with deep expertise in collaboration and design thinking. We share a passion for turning user insights into better experiences and business results.
We’ve been a remote team for 11 years. While we love to collaborate with clients in person during normal times, we are experts at remote research and virtual workshops with all types of teams.
