JD-Works Consulting offers clients a complete package of design services with a strong focus on user research and interaction design
How we work
Our service is completely tailored to our client’s needs. This extends from the initial approach on commencing a project, to the specific methods and tools that are utilised.
We also provides access to a network of user experience professionals, and can provide appropriately skilled individuals to suit a particular client, project or type of end user.
In-depth user research is the foundation on which successful products are created, whether this is ongoing collaboration with end-users throughout the design lifecycle, or research prior to starting a project.
We apply a range of techniques bespoke to each client. In the past, this has included interviews, A/B testing, usability analysis, surveying, and expert/heuristic reviews, applied in a variety of settings such as user journey mapping, workshops or one-to-one interviews.
Iterative prototyping combined with regular user feedback and testing sessions helps to create products that people want to use. Involving end-users from the outset increases buy-in, as well as the chances that a project will be a success.
JD Works will select the appropriate method for each project. This could involve low-fidelity sketches and wireframes through to use of interactive prototyping tools or coded HTML/CSS applications.
Form is equally as important as function, and producing a slick looking user interface is critical for stakeholders and end-users alike, forming a key part of the user experience.
We specialise in working with brands to design or apply an appropriate look and feel to a project, and have visual design expertise across a wide range of mediums, including digital applications, data visualisation, web sites, and in print.
With over ten years experience we have wide ranging expertise in producing high quality user experiences in a variety of fields and sectors. We have worked several high-profile B2C clients including the BBC, Sky, Sainsbury’s Bank, Yodel, and Channel 4.
We have experience working with public sector clients, and have taken HMRC projects from 'discovery' to beta following Government Digital Services assessments.
We also specialise in B2B projects and have worked closely with digital procurement firm Efficio Consulting.

JD Works Consulting was formed in response to the growing market for providing outstanding user experiences.
Over the last ten years a number of factors have driven the industry in a new user-orientated direction. Consumers are now highly demanding of digital services they interact with, and with levels of competition in many sectors at record highs there is little tolerance for less than perfect interactions.
Combined with these factors there has been an explosion in the amount of information present in our lives. Developments including wearable technology, smart phones and the ‘Internet of things’ has shown there is no let-up in the thirst for data, and we now have vast quantities of information at our disposal.
JD Works Consulting helps clients hone user experiences to provide customers with smooth and satisfying journeys, make sense of complex data, and designing products that are orientated around real user needs.
We are based in the beautiful seaside town of Emsworth, on the South Coast.
