DCN logo

Wellcome Collection are calling out to disabled visitors to user test designs for a forthcoming exhibition.
We would like to test the heights of exhibition cases, label angles and exhibition texts in
Gallery 1 Monday 5 June at 10am or 2pm.

To sign up or find out more contact g.monk@wellcome.ac.uk

We have an exhibition in development called Can Graphic Design Save Your Life? which will open our ground floor gallery at Wellcome Collection in early September.

We’re currently evaluating and improving our inclusive design process and will be trying out various models of user test over the coming year. In the immediate term though we would like to set up a small group to give us feedback on prototype showcase and labels before we commit to building all of the exhibition furniture for this September exhibition. We know from visitor feedback that we sometimes get showcase height & design, and label position & design wrong so would appreciate the chance to run this test, build cases in response to user panel comments, and then monitor feedback through the exhibition’s run.

We are looking for adult participants in the London area. We are running two session – at 10am and 2pm each with a total of 6 participants.  We could also run an early evening session if necessary.

Sessions will take place in our ground floor gallery and we’ll have a prototype showcase, object labels and some of the exhibition’s texts to get responses to.

We will reimburse travel and lunch expenses by cash or bankers draft.
