Are you seriously interested in pursuing a career in user experience (UX) design? Then you should come through and meet UX. This workshop aims to demystify UX design and provide answers to the most relevant questions about UX today.

  • What is it?
  • Who is it for?
  • How does it work?
  • Is it for me?

Hopefully, you’ve already answered the last one but if not, come through and meet UX. There are limited spaces…only 36, so submit your entry quickly and possibly secure your invite.

Psst…we’ll be giving away prizes all day. Gift cards (electronic store), cool swag and opportunities to shadow with RetroRabbit or Fixxr in 2023.

Learn about journey mapstask flows and wireframing as you compete in teams* to design solutions (that could find the way to production) for Fixxr. It’s all paper-based, with no need for laptops or software, just good ol’ fashion problem solving. Impress on the day and you might meet your new employer or first client.

* Teams are randomly assigned.

Your client is FIXXR, a car repair and maintenance company looking to improve the way their services are presented, and ‘experienced’, on their website. FIXXR leverages technology to find better ways to provide convenient, transparent and quality car repair and maintenance services; wherever their customers are and whenever they need them.

On their platform, you can request almost any service under the sun to fix(x) your car – from general maintenance to repairing that dang door that won't stop squeaking! You can do this by going to their website and entering the details of your car and the services you require. FIXXR will then find a mechanic for you and send them straight to your door.

With such an innovative service the process you go through must be as seamless as possible to retain existing customers and draw new users to the platform, this is where you come in! During the workshop, you will work in a team and engage in a series of paper-based UI/UX exercises to identify opportunities to improve or streamline FIXXR’s current processes.
