What We Do
It All Comes Together
Our worldview begins and ends with our users’ needs — it’s all about them. When beginning on a major initiative, we conduct research to get to the next level of insight about our clients’ goals and challenges. Emphasizing low-fidelity iterations, we generate ideas, test them in our in-house usability lab, all the while making sure we’re aligned with our technology and business partners. In our small teams, we own these solutions — from beginning to end.
Our People Make it Happen
Keeping everything going smoothly is a dream team of UX skillsets — from interaction design to prototyping, visual design to usability analysis. Much like the user experiences we shape, our team works together seamlessly, collaborating on projects senior management deems crucial for our customers. We get kudos as the company acknowledges and affirms the value we add to the product. And always, we’re scouring the world for the best talent around to keep the momentum going.
Interaction designers at Bloomberg are responsible for concept development, wireframe design, and low fidelity prototyping. They visit customers to conduct contextual inquiries, document their observations and synthesize their findings to inform their design solutions.
Working closely with Interaction Designers and software developers, Visual Designers establish the visual language across all channels, including mobile, balancing the needs of the brand with the need for clear and precise display of complex data.
Usability analysts employ a wide variety of research methodologies including task-based lab sessions, heuristic evaluations, card sorts, ethnographic interviews, and data analysis. Our state-of-the-art usability lab is equipped with video, screen capture and eye-tracking technology.
Our prototypers are responsible for building interactive prototypes to validate design concepts for next-generation products. They work closely with the other members of the team to quickly turn interaction and visual design specifications into high-fidelity prototypes that are used by our customers in usability testing.

The theme of Interaction14 is “Languages of Interaction Design.” We see language in several contexts. There is spoken language, body language and written language. There is an interface language between user and system. Other languages include the jargon we use to discuss our work and the tools that we use to do our work. By enhancing the “Languages of Interaction Design” we create new ways to view interactions between people and things. Of particular interest is extending the context from urban to mobile screens and from immersive to sensor based environments.
