How does it work?

We conduct several types of design research studies throughout the year with both students and educators.

When a study comes up that matches your profile, we will contact you to determine your availability.

After you complete a session, we compensate you with a gift card ($75 and up, depending on the study length and type).

What is the format?

While the sessions vary in structure, most are 30-60 minute interviews conducted via web conferencing software. Occasionally, we conduct in-person interviews at participants' homes or at meeting centers.

We will advise you of the session type before you agree to join a particular study. All studies are for research purposes only; we do not attempt to pitch any products to you in the process.

Your Info and Privacy

Our clients often need to learn from particular audience segments, so we collect information through the form below to help determine participant fit for each study. We may use this information to contact you and ask follow-up questions to further qualify you for the study. All responses are completely voluntary.

We take your privacy very seriously. See our full privacy policy for details.
