User Experience Architect

User Experience Architect

The User Experience Architect role in the team is focused on drawing together the client’s business requirements, the user requirements, and understanding the technical delivery environment in which the solution is to be delivered. Our Experience Architects are process-driven, structured and able to bring order to complex systems.

Using their core skills in information architecture and requirements-gathering, plus their wide-ranging knowledge of usability issues and techniques, the Experience Architect defines the technical aspects of the user’s experience (e.g. identification of user types/usage scenarios, defining user flows, content inventories) through to delivery of detailed deliverables (e.g. information architecture, navigation systems, wireframes and documentation). They have an overall view of the objectives and strategy behind the project, plus the attention to detail to be able to define how the project will work at a granular and functional level.
