My UX research & design ramblings

UX Bag

A couple of years ago I blogged about creating a UX Tin. This little box went to so many meetings and workshops with me, and was so very useful that I was sad to leave it behind when I left for a new job.

Another job and a new set of workshops and I was feeling the need for a new UX Tin.

However I had learnt a bit since then, like the fact it is really annoying if the tin is too small and you can not close the lid.

So having done a little research I came across the BUBM ultra compact electronics organiser. Being material, it is a bit more flexible than my old tin, and it has a handle to make it easier to carry.

You can't have enough sharpies

Now I can fill it with sharpies, post-it notes and Blu Tack and they will not burst out while I am walking to my meeting. It is not full yet, I am waiting to see what other useful things I should add to it as I run more workshops with people across the business. But there is plenty of room, so I am not worried.

I am hoping we will get to the same place as the UX Tin, where people ask if I can bring it with me to their meeting. That is when I will know people are starting to appreciate what UX can help them with.
