Talking psych to non-psychologists

Psychology is a crucial discipline for all UX people – whether they started there or discovered it via other routes. However, it may come as a surprise, but not everyone spends all day philosophising on how the mind works. These ‘non-psychologists’ actually have other things that they think about. Who knew?!

Design Principles at the Cinema: a UX Consultant's tale

As a UX consultant I often find it difficult to avoid or ignore poor design, particularly in the digital world.

A look back at UX Bristol

Whether you are a UX designer or consultant you’ll know that both disciplines work hand in hand to form a great user experience. Here at Nomensa, UX designers and consultants work collaboratively.
