Hey, Businesses Building a UX Team or Practice


Ptype is your UX partner.

You know you can’t keep doing things the same old way… expecting your programmers, visual designers, product people, or the CEO to design the product. That hasn’t totally been working. It’s time to build your UX team.

You know you need in-house UX… but where do you start? Your company has never really hired a UX specialist before. How do you know if someone is good at UX? Do you hire specialists? Hybrids? Juniors? Seniors? Freelancers? Full timers? What do these people get paid?

You can’t afford to get this wrong.

Everybody at the company is watching. The customers are at the door with torches, demanding the product be more user friendly.

Don’t worry. You’ve just discovered your perfect partner.

We will work with you and every relevant team at your company to introduce a UX process and UX team.

Ptype can train your workers and teams, and train other departments on what UX is, where it fits into the organization, and how to best collaborate.

And if the work is already piling up, we can perform the UX work, help you build everything up, and then transition to your in-house UX.

Training and Consulting

In addition to our perosnalized consulting, we offer two training courses that we can deliver to your team. These workshops are available on-site (preferable) or live and remote via a collaboration tool like GoToMeeting.

“Starting or Improving a UX Practice” is a multi-day workshop for managers, company executives, team leaders, and other stakeholders. It help explain what UX is, its role in an organization, and how to set up your teams to collaborate.

“Understanding UX and Collaborating with UX Practitioners” is a multi-day workshop for non-UX roles such as business analysts, developers, QA engineers, product managers, project managers, Scrum Masters, Lean evangelists, graphic designers, copywriters, and anyone not performing UX tasks. This workshop is similar to the above one but is aimed at the practitioners who will be working with UX roles (rather than management or executives).
