This month, we opened the doors of our London office to students from UCL and City University for World Usability Day.
The event was designed to give students a good idea of how we work here at Foolproof and how the skills that they’re developing during their courses can be applied to commercial projects.
The day was kicked off with a presentation by Tim on Foolproof’s clients and industry perspective. After this, students were invited to take a guided tour around the offices and speak to our consultants and account directors about some of the different roles in our organisation.
Students were also able to get an in-depth look at our research facilities and some of our lab-based research methods. They were given the chance to try some of the user research tools and techniques that we use on client projects, including in-depth interviews and eye tracking.
The day was concluded with a presentation by Elsa on current UX trends and some of Foolproof’s predictions for the future. Afterwards, we opened some beers and offered students the chance to have an informal chat with Foolproof staff.
We were really impressed with the attendance and participation on the day. We had a great time talking to everyone and we hope that we’ve had the pleasure of meeting some future UX consultants.
