About this blog

As the title suggests these articles and presentations are for anyone that wants to take a dip into the stimulating, refreshing and enlightening world of User Experience (UX). Whilst it’s more than just good common sense, UX certainly isn’t rocket science and it’s something that everyone can do. I share UX ideas, tips, techniques, tools and practices that everyone can use to help design a better user experience for all.

About me

Neil Turner

My name’s Neil Turner and I’m an experienced UX designer currently working at AstraZeneca (a biopharmaceutical company) in the UK. A former techy (well I’ve got a Computer Science degree) turned UX Jedi I have over 10 years commercial UX experience, together with a Human-Computer Interaction MSc (distinction) from University College London.

Previously I have led the UX design for projects at ProQuest (a content & technology company), Omobono (a specialist B2B digital agency), TUI (Europe’s largest holiday tour operator), johnlewis.com (a leading UK ecommerce website), Cambridge Assessment (an international exams group) and been a UX consultant for Webcredible (an industry leading UX consultancy) and a full service digital agency.

I currently live in Cambridge in the UK and along with being an identical twin (not as useful as you might think), I’m also a long suffering Norwich City FC supporter (come on the Canaries).
