Event Details

A bimonthly event in Sheffield where we invite speakers from around the country to come and talk about their experiences in research and design projects. 







With many VR applications being built and companies dipping their toe in the VR water we are seeing that many of these have a poor user experience. As with any service, it’s important to consider the basic principles when designing for VR. Based on our experiences from testing with users, we’ll talk about some of the UX principles to consider when creating a VR app.





Jamie Wales

Jamie graduated from Loughborough University achieving a BSc (Hons) degree in Ergonomics, therefore understanding the importance of designing for the needs of the user. He was particularly interested in the HCI aspect of his studies and this is what led Jamie to join Bunnyfoot, a place where he can advocate the benefits of applying user centred design services throughout the design process and quite simply make things usable.

Jamie is well versed in carrying out various UCD methodologies such as expert evaluations, user testing and card sorting. During his time at Bunnyfoot he has worked closely with big name clients such as BSkyB, Visa and Sony, such client relationships have seen him undertake and coordinate studies internationally, both face to face and remotely. He has particular experience of user testing on mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones and has in depth knowledge of mobile interface design best practices.

Outside of work Jamie's main passion is music, he plays the guitar, ukulele and attempts to play the Saxophone when the neighbours aren't in! He has been involved in various bands throughout the years and recorded two albums, the highlight of his musical experiences being a highly eventful whirlwind tour of Europe, one to tell the kids about!

Ian has experience of all stages of User Centred Design, including usability studies, information architecture, wireframes, and interaction design. Prior to working at Bunnyfoot, he spent 5 years working in the financial services sector as a UX designer and so is used to working on complex, highly regulated projects.

Ian had previously spent 4 years working with content management systems, again in the financial services sector, which has given him a good understanding of the technology behind the designs and the challenges it can present.

Ian's recent clients include Arsenal, OAG, NEST, Platts and the Department of Work and Pensions.

Ian enjoys playing 5-a-side football, cocktail making and travel (recent trips include walking the Inca Trail in Peru and cycling down Death Road in Bolivia).
