Test Tube + Special Guest: Christian Wallin. UX Lead, Birchbox

Welcome to an evening of intense usability testing with fellow startup companies. Think 'Speed Dating' for Product Feedback. Over the course of an hour and a half you'll meet with 5-6 other startups and take turns to give and get feedback on each other's ideas.


You bring your wireframes, sketches, and just-baked apps - and arrive with one clear task you want the user to achieve.

For example, it could be navigating through your onboarding, posting an event, listing an item on your site, or taking and sharing a photo.

You'll then have 7 minutes to watch (and listen!) to another startup interact with your product, before the tables turn and you get to test their product out too.


Christian will be running us through some practical examples of how they approach UX at Birchbox.

Christian's Bio: I grew up on the curb of New York. And by "curb" I mean New Jersey... where the city's garbage goes. I lead User Experience at Birchbox, where we relish in the opportunity to design for both digital and physical experiences, from our eCommerce and content website to a monthly delivered box of happiness. 

From a professional perspective, my focus is to build smart products and love every second of it. I have the great pleasure of working with a design team at Birchbox that makes that easy. 

From a personal perspective, my focus is to learn to longboard (skateboard) with as few concussions as possible. 


Simply send a tweet to let people know you're attending the the event, and we'll refund your ticket. Be sure to include @testtubenyc and the link to All refunds will be processed the day after the event.
