The Evil Martians team has launched a new service—User Interface audit! A UI audit is an examination of a web or mobile app's user interface that checks for compliance with more than a hundred criteria that, if met, will help increase your app's conversion rates, enhance user experience, and make the UI more accessible and inclusive.

At Evil Martians, our team of designers has over 16 years of interface development experience with a range of UIs—from large ecommerce platforms, to dev tools and commercial open source products. Over the years, we’ve learned both the critical factors and the slightest details that can improve UX—and now we’re ready to share this experience with our customers. We’ll help you recognize and implement 100% of the criteria to make your UIs better for users.

Who benefits most from a UI audit?

We recommend the UI audit service for mature products which have already found their product-market fit and a defined business model. This is critical since a UI audit is intended to be an optimization—and by the same token, you should be ready for the impact of those optimizations on the development side of things; your product should be prepared for the influx of new users and ready to scale.

If the above doesn’t apply to you: for products in their early stages—MVPs or startups that are testing hypotheses or undergoing fast, iterative development—the Martian design sprint can bring the most value. It helps solidify ideas, shape feature priorities and work scope, define UI design, and ultimately, can create an overall development strategy.

How UI audits work

Input: We start with a 1-hour call to interview stakeholders about your product and request. At this point, we define the scope—the screens and user flows which should be examined.

The process: We go through the scope and check each step of your flow and every screen for compliance with more than a hundred criteria: best practices for navigation, web forms, accessibility, and more. For instance, we’ll check if the form stores the user’s data after a page refresh, if an error message clearly explains what’s just happened and what actions the user can take to remedy it, or if the text and its background have a contrast ratio of at least 4.5:1. We allocate each item one of the following statuses: “passed,” “not passed (not critical),” or “not passed (critical).”

Output: As a result, clients will receive a detailed report for their product with a review of all the possible criteria for your particular project. The report will contain all the statuses and recommendations on how to improve the “not passed” points (even for “not critical” cases.)

What’s next?

Getting your results isn’t the end of the story. Evil Martians can help you implement all the enhancements, run a design sprint to elevate your UI, or launch a new product version.

Please email us a brief description of your request and a link to your product. We’ll respond within a couple of hours to organize your UI audit and deliver the results as fast as possible.
