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.

Junior UX Crunch: Inclusive Design

Aldgate Tower

TICKET ONLY EVENT: http://bit.ly/2FJ65wS For both moral and legal reasons, designing for accessibility has always been a necessary part of a design to allow a product to reach its full potential. The UN estimates that more than 1 billion people around the world live with some form of disability and as populations age over the coming years, that number is expected to rise rapidly. "Accessibility is solved at the design stage" - Daniel Na. Join us as we sit down for another fantastic evening of theoretical insight, case studies, networking and more!

She has led design for many projects both in London and globally, for a number of high profile clients including Tiffany & Co, The FA, and Ford. Curb Cut: Building an Inclusive Design Process Most fledgling design teams don’t put inclusivity at the forefront of their agendas, what happens when you change that? This talk will cover my experience of developing an inclusive design process for my multi-disciplinary team and overcoming my own design challenges along the way. Gul Rasool & Peter Farah - User Research - Home Office Digital Gul is a user researcher with a background in anthropology and participatory design. She is driven by creating services that are shaped by people's needs and lived experiences. Since joining Home Office she has been researching with visually impaired users to test how accessible Home Office services are, and worked to improve them to ensure anyone who needs to use a Home Office service, can do so in way that is equal and fair. Peter is a user researcher at the Home Office with a background in psychology. His interest in research began during his BSc where he used qualitative research methods to explore the experience of boredom. He is passionate about making accessible and inclusive services that work for users, and has been working with the access needs team in the Home Office to achieve this. Gul and Peter are both user researchers at Home Office Digital. They will be talking about why it's important to do research with users with access needs, how to find research participants to speak with, conducting the research, and the implications this has for design. They will also share some personal learnings from research they have done with people with visual impairments.
