  1. Designing BBC Search

    Dan Tallis Dan Tallis User Experience Architect

    Users frequently enter short and vague terms, which are often misspelt. If we could help users enter more accurate search terms then we would be able to give them much more useful and relevant results.

    Leanne Dougan Leanne Dougan Senior Designer

    The app importantly had to incorporate everything which Children love about CBeebies, the humour, surprise, and excitement. We also needed to make sure it was scalable for an audience who are driven by image led navigation, and reliant on large hit states.

  4. Lean-UX and the big picture: a case study

    Monday 13 October 2014, 07:30

    Ferdinando De Meo Ferdinando De Meo User Experience Designer

    Over the last six months, I have been working on some internal systems that the BBC uses for curating and editing some of its content online. Based on this experience, I have realised that a Lean UX approach for a complex media organisation like the BBC can be extremely beneficial.

  5. Creating a universal UX pattern for responsive location search

    Wednesday 1 October 2014, 11:08

    Simon Meredith Simon Meredith Designer

    The brief was to create a responsive UX pattern for searching and setting a ‘preferred’ location across the BBC. We needed a unified UX solution – something that would make the user experience more intuitive and reduce the need to repeat location searches.

  6. Design Sprints at the BBC

    Tuesday 2 September 2014, 09:27

    Dan Ramsden Dan Ramsden User Experience Architect

    Each ‘sprint’ focuses on a specific design challenge. And because ‘sprinting’ is so quick, we explore a range of ideas in a relatively short space of time. That's the theory. But like any bit of design thinking, the real insight came from trying it out and testing it in practice.

    Rory Pickering Rory Pickering User Experience Designer

    While positioned in the GEL [http://www.bbc.co.uk/gel] team, I was involved in producing design guidelines to inform our web-based products across the BBC. One such guideline gives recommendations on how to optimise our products for touch input (in simple terms, to make things ‘touch-friendly’).

  10. College of Technology round up: lean UX, codecs, file delivery

    Wednesday 25 June 2014, 08:21

    Frederick Botham Frederick Botham Researcher

    A source of near-constant frustration for internet users seems to be non-functioning or otherwise absent codecs. Media found online can often prompt a dreaded error message when put through our playback devices.

  11. Announcing the UX&D roster

    Tuesday 17 June 2014, 14:32

    Colin Burns Colin Burns Executive Creative Director

    We have made the decision to appoint a smaller roster than we have in the past. This was because we wanted to make sure that if an agency was selected, they would have a reasonable expectation of getting work from the BBC, as well as a greater opportunity to build long-term working relationships with...

  13. BBC iWonder interactive guides: navigation and user experience

    Thursday 8 May 2014, 15:28

    Nick Horrell Nick Horrell Senior Product Manager

    We started out with the structure of a guide. It had to be completely scalable, both in user experience and the way we wrote the code. Our first 3 fortnightly sprints (working under the Agile Methodology) were focussed largely on responsive navigation and how each step of the guide would be displayed...

  14. User experience and design in BBC Playlister: how to be David Fincher

    Tuesday 6 May 2014, 07:31

    Wai Tai Li Wai Tai Li Senior UX desiger

    We focused on the core concept and tried to get it right. I didn’t create loads of formal UX deliverables. But I still killed a lot of trees by making quick sketches. We built a prototype to validate ideas and user journeys but not with any high fidelity visual design.

    Kutlu Canlioglu Kutlu Canlioglu Creative Director

    There are around 1,200 hours of content available on BBC iPlayer at any one time... So exposing the breadth of content available, without getting in the way of those users who have come with something specific in mind, was a key consideration.

     You can see how the responsive site works at different screen sizes on desktop by adjusting the size of your browser window to see how the content automatically flows and re-adjusts to the screen size i.e. it is one site that works across all screens.

    As of today the homepages for individual programmes, known as the brand page, have been relaunched with a new design. This design is responsive, making it flexible for all devices and joins the A-Z, Category and Schedule pages that were built this way last year.

    In June last year we published a draft of the BBC Mobile Accessibility Standards and Guidelines. Since then we've been listening to feedback, reviewing the standards and guidelines, and refining techniques so that today the standards can finally come out of draft.

    Friday 20 December 2013, 09:39

    Robin Pembrooke Robin Pembrooke Head of Product

    We’ve found that much of the original code deployed has had to be refactored to allow for styling differences to be applied rapidly across indexes on all 27 of the language sites in a way that works at all different types of browsers.

    Mala Vadhia Mala Vadhia Senior Designer

    We currently support 438 different screen resolutions on over 1000 Android devices. The key challenge here was to produce a design that scales, rather than bespoke solutions for both iPhone and iPad.
