The UX Crunch is London’s largest user experience networking events company. User experience is one of the hottest debatable subjects within the digital world at the moment, with networking and learning key for UX professionals who are keen to develop their careers. In a contract-heavy market, it’s always great to network with hiring managers and meet potential connections that could help you secure your next contract. We approach our networking events in a unique way by hosting our events at various venues around London, showcasing the workplaces of some of the top user experience companies. By always including a stellar line up of industry experts with new and exciting topics of discussion, we aim to create a new phenomenon within digital networking; making cutting edge events and opening up possibilities of collaboration within the UX community.

Our Junior UX Crunch events offer the same top-notch industry insight but with a lower price point to encourage younger UX designers to get involved and see what the UX Crunch has to offer.

Our events often offer free drinks and food as well as some of the most inspirational user experience guest speakers in the industry. We welcome people who are looking to get in UX and find out more about the area. Recruiters and hiring managers are also welcome and we encourage jobs and opportunity networking in an ever-changing and evolving industry.

Host an event

We are always looking for major companies to host events. Hosting is free, however you will be expected to provide food and drink for the attendees as well as a space large enough to hold more than 60 people.

Hosting an event is a great way of getting exposure to a huge user experience audience. This helps promote your brand name, encourages people to join your organisation and gives you a great way of promoting to your clients/customers. Those hosting the UX Crunch can promote the event on their social media platforms to demonstrate support for the UX community and you take pride in your website’s usability.

The Junior UX Crunch: Bias and Design

WeWork

Cognitive bias is a systematic error of our heuristics–subconscious associations, beliefs and split-second judgments. No one can simply eliminate his or her biases. Due to their innate nature, we can consider ourselves lucky that we’re even aware of them. What we can do instead is notice, harness and use their positive aspects in our designs. Learn from leading designers and equip yourself ready for the next steps in your career as we discuss bias, research, data and design. We'll be joined by; Martin Hicks - Senior Research Manager - Lloyds Banking Group Melissa Clark - Experince Strategy and Business Design - Formely Google Launchpad, Code and Theory, Method Hardy Sidhu - Product Designer - AKQA ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ TICKET ONLY EVENT > http://bit.ly/2HlLLmv Please make sure you purchased a ticket to secure your place.
