As a multi-disciplinary agency, we have many of in-house experts who are able to combine their years of knowledge and research to create a consistent UX strategy that delights and inspires.

Beyond Foundational UX

Being part of a wider full-service agency means each team gets special access to expertise that traditional design and strategy agencies miss out on. Long before Google announced UX to be the fourth pillar of SEO, our user experience (UX) team collaborated closely with our SEO team to make sure recommendations are reliable and accurate, and work for both users and search engines. Sites are designed with UX and SEO in mind by default, meaning that your website can be easily found by Google while also providing a seamless experience for your users.

And we don’t just work with the SEO team. Because our UX team is dedicated to user experience – a separate discipline to graphic design – we focus our efforts exclusively on the experience, never compromising for the sake of aesthetics.

Our approach to UX

We’ve worked as the UX agency to some of the world’s leading brands on high-calibre design projects, providing guidance and even embedding ourselves into existing teams to add exceptional value. Our strategic approach helps businesses to increase their conversion and profitability through effective UX design that promotes engagement and brand loyalty.

Testing & analysis

First of all, we’ll analyse your existing website to see how it performs. Through a combination of user testing and heuristic feedback, we’ll get to the bottom of the issues people face when they visit your site. This initial fact finding will also encompass future considerations to identify and support the changing requirements and trends in UX design.

UX strategy

We’ll then work with you to develop and action a UX strategy that will bring meaningful change and quantifiable improvements. This strategy will be created in line with your business goals to ensure that any changes made to your site will benefit your organisation and its customers in the long term.

Continual improvement

Once redesign recommendations have been delivered and implemented, we’ll continue to monitor your site and examine user journeys to determine how well it’s performing, and make amendments as necessary. This dedication to providing ongoing support is one of the many reasons why our clients stick with Hallam.

We’re passionate about developing great relationships with our clients, and we combine our expertise with your in-depth knowledge of your business to create UX solutions that get results.

  • Can you review the usability of my site?

    Absolutely. Our experts know the ins and outs of UX design and can analyse your existing site to determine what works, and what needs to be improved. After reviewing your site, we’ll provide you with actionable insights designed to make your website easy to use and intuitive for first-time visitors. We always work with your business goals in mind, so any improvements that we suggest will be carefully considered to ensure that they don’t just help your customers, but are also in the best interests of your business.

  • Do you offer user testing?

    We sure do! We believe that research, analysis and testing are essential to the development of a successful UX strategy. User testing helps us to determine what does and doesn’t work, so you can make informed decisions. Your business is your livelihood, and we understand that taking risks based on hunches simply isn’t an option. User testing also allows you to better demonstrate the value of your UX strategy to key stakeholders within the organisation.

  • Is UX only important for e-commerce sites?

    While it may be easier to follow and understand a user’s journey on an e-commerce site, UX is actually an intrinsic part of any interaction a person has with your business, particularly online. It encompasses everything from navigation and layout to load times and payment options, as well as accessibility considerations for those that are differently abled. The easier it is for a user to get the answers they need, the more likely it is that they will choose you over the competition, and that’s the basis of a great UX strategy.
