This case study is unusual (for me) because it documents from a UX perspective my involvement in a very short but intensive software development project. From start to finish it lasted only 10 weeks (5 sprints) or as I prefer to remember it, 4 haircuts (different people), 3 birthdays and a video… well I thought it was unusual.

Testimonials

Matt Warren (Enterprise Solutions Architect)

“Alan is quite certainly the most skilled Information Architect it has ever been my pleasure to work with. If you want a user interface designing to perfection then this is the guy for you. I just wish I had his skills at explaining abstract concepts to others – i’m just way too techy!”

Matt Warren (Enterprise Solutions Architect)
Martin Browne (Rootstock Software)

Alan is the best at what he does! When it comes to UI, there is no one better!

Martin Browne (Rootstock Software)
Simon Day (APMG International – Web Developer)

Alan is simply the best user interface designer / information architect you are ever likely to find and you won’t find anyone in disagreement.

Phillip Probert (UX Project Manager & BA – Freelance)

Is very smart and very talented with a lot of experience. A consummate UX specialist rather than an all rounder. Very positive and helpful attitude, one of the safest hands around. Awesome with Axure and a principle trainer for Axtrainers.co.uk the only Axure approved training company in Europe. Core skills: interaction design, visual design, analysis and hands-on rapid data visualisation prototyping.

Mark Stokes (Red Plane – Owner)

I enjoy working with Alan on every project we get to collaborate on. Alan is definitely led by, and has vast knowledge on the science of User Experience and challenges everything to ensure any product is absolutely right for the end user.

All devs, techies and business folk should work with a UX engineer and I would highly recommend Alan in that role.

He is also a thoroughly nice chap and a pleasure to work with.
