S8080 is well-known for its unique and comprehensive user experience (UX), usability and information architecture (IA) processes. Our aims are simple - to tightly align your online communication with your objectives and audience groups - this ensures that whatever we create for you will perform as it should.
Employing user experience design and UX tools including competitor and peer analysis, content analysis, IA, persona development and user journeys ensure your audience will not only use, but engage with your content.
As a leading UX agency, we can also undertake pre and post development expert reviews and evaluation of websites covering usability, online goals, user experience and accessibility, advising on usability tweaks to improve your ROI.
You can see lots of examples of our latest website build work in our work section. If you would like to talk to us about your project, please get in touch with one of S8080’s directors, Chris or Matt.
If your competitor or peer websites appear to be doing better than you, it’s time to call us in.
An S8080 expert review is a fast and cost effective way to improve your website and your user’s experience. It’s all about 'quick wins'. We’ll evaluate many aspects including ease of use, learnability, persuasiveness terminology and navigation.

True UX design means key design decisions are not just the whim of a designer or board of directors. Everything we do is centred around your users.
We help you to identify these people and gather their ‘needs and wants’, all the while defining your site's objectives. We do this using personas - lifelike pen portraits of your audience groups. They have faces, names, backgrounds and distinct goals. They define the content and functionality you’ll need on your website to engage them.

During the information architecture phase we re-categorise your information and define your site's hierarchy - developing your IA, wire frames, clickable site prototypes, content plan and functional and technical specs. In most cases, usability testing is employed to validate the UX work we do.
As everything we do is centred around your users, a well-considered IA will mean your audience will find what they want easily and quickly.

Once we’ve understood your users and the pages they expect to find on your website, we then look at the individual page designs. Wireframes are the first stage of the design process and help us (and you) understand the key user journeys, information structuring and functionality.
