Most UX designers use qualitative researchâ€”typically in the form of usability testsâ€”to guide their decision-making. However, using quantitative data to measure user experience can be a very different proposition. Over the last two years our UX team at Vanguard has developed some tools and techniques to help us use quantitative data effectively. We’ve had some successes, we’ve had some failures, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried, and we’ve developed ten key guidelines that you might find useful.

As designers who work with clients, we often concern ourselves with output; most of the apps we use are designed to produce it.
It’s been a while since I last talked about a design project here on my blog.
