Andrew Robert Burgess – UX Designer

Andrew Robert Burgess

Hello!

My name is Andrew Robert Burgess. I’m a UX Designer based in London, UK, with over 18 years experience in inception, design and development of websites, interfaces and promotions. On this site, you can read my blog, look at my portfolio, find out more about me, or get in touch.
 

A bit more about me

I’ve worked in a number of roles in interface design, software development, and have built on that experience to work better with production teams to build products that put the user first. I’ve worked with teams across the world, creating applications for international audiences, as well as those for much more select user bases, guiding developers, analysts and stakeholders towards producing products that fulfil and delight those that use them.

UX Research: when the users can’t come to you, you have to go to them

The Springer stall at the ACS Fall Conference

In some projects, the users don’t come to you for research, so you have to ensure you go to them. This is crucial in ensuring that your project addresses their needs, and that you don’t get mired in assumptions during production. This post discusses an example of how I went to a conference in Philadelphia to seek out users to talk to.

We’ve been working for some time to find ways to talk to machines, and one such method of late has been the idea of a purely conversational interface. This article provides a history of how we came to this point, and where things can go from here.

A discussion on survival in the modern world.

I’m currently in a bit of a hiatus from Facebook, and, to some degree, from reading the news. The culmination of post-Brexit blues, the rise of Donald Trump, the constant barrage of news stories about people slaughtering each other with machine guns, knives and bombs around the world, the refugee crisis, the decline of the […]
