UpFront 2019; what we learnt...
A couple of members of the Absurd Front End team were in attendance at this year’s UpFront conference at Manchester's Bridgewater Hall.
Designing for Chatbots
As chatbots become prevalent and their AI matures, we’ve started exploring use cases for a number of our clients looking for ways to improve efficiency and service experiences.
Running an effective pitch process
As an agency we are supposed to roll our eyes at a pitch and do everything we can to avoid them, and there are legitimate reasons for this. But the honest truth is, we love a pitch when it’s run correctly.
Is the Progressive Web App here to stay?
Progressive Web Apps have been widely discussed at Absurd recently. We’re interested in whether they will disrupt the demand for native apps.
Early feedback and the non-customer
Something we’ve been conscious about recently (more so than ever) is ensuring we involve customers as early on in our design process as possible.
Building a viable MVP
A few articles have recently suggested the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) is dead; a concept that should be abandoned.
Absurd targets growth with senior hire
Absurd, the Manchester-headquartered agency, has further strengthened its management team with the appointment of Mark Carrington as Program Director.
