Streamlining Your User Experience
Where User Understanding Leads to Innovation
In the intricate world of User Experience (UX) design, understanding how users categorize and interpret information is crucial. At Nighthawk, we use Card Sorting, a powerful UX research technique, to gain these insights directly from your users. This method is key to creating intuitive, user-friendly information architectures that resonate with your audience.
What is Card Sorting?
Card Sorting is a participatory research method where users organize topics into categories that make sense to them. This technique helps uncover how users think about your content and structure, leading to a more intuitive user experience. It's especially useful for designing or evaluating the information architecture of websites, apps, and digital products.
