Hey, we're glad you're here!

UX Notts is a community of practice group with the aim of connecting UX, Service designers, researchers and consultants. We meet up in person at our bi-monthly events and online in our Slack group to share ideas, learn from each other and build friendships with like-minded professionals in and around the Nottingham area. Whether you're new to UX or an old-hand, we'd love you to join our community. 

UX Notts Workshops

UX Notts Workshops are free, informal sessions where UX, CX and Service Design professionals, and anyone interested in this area, get together to share and test design thinking tools and techniques. Each workshop will be led by a guest facilitator and will give our attendees the opportunity to practice a new technique in a friendly, collaborative, space.
