Not just another transport website. This is Manchester, we do things differently here.

Carolyn Warburton & Brian Austin

Carolyn from Valtech and Brian from TfGM will describe how the team applied design thinking to deliver the new digital service.

Testing a backlog of hypotheses across all Greater Manchester’s 10 boroughs, we applied the insight to create beautiful creative routes and high fidelity designs. We will describe how you can make these UX and creative tasks visible, so the team know what work is being done. 
We’ll also share how we include the whole team in the user research, how to engage developers with UX and design work and help the whole team learn what’s required to address user needs.
