On Wednesday last week, our friends at Fluxx hosted their regular 'Experiments in Design' meet-up at the company's very cool office by Hatton Wall in London. It was our first time attending this meet-up, but it certainly won't be our last as it was really awesome.
The meet-up had several components to it, including a talk on how to structure an experiment in order to validate user appetite for a new idea ('Wizard of Oz' and 'Shut the door' approaches), a case study of using the right way to present a concept to gauge user feedback (and a summary of an Imperial masters course in just 5mins!) as well as a drawing class from Fluxx's own designer Stefano.
We were pleased to attend for the content alone, but it was fabulous to see the uptake of Hiver from the event's attendees. Senior consultant at Fluxx, Tim Hanby-Holmes, was kind enough to give Hiver a shout-out at the beginning of the event which meant more attendees downloaded Hiver, inherently making it easier for people to remember who they met.
We were also pleased to get some really positive feedback from one of the event's attendees on a new feature that was introduced in the latest edition of Hiver.
You are now able to add the details of an event listed in Hiver into your calendar so it's super easy to block time out and then find details about the event.
