IMPROVING LIVES, MAKING CITIES BETTER
UXcities is dedicated to developing projects and creating products that improve people’s individual experiences in cities.
INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCES MEAN EVERYTHING
Improving people’s experiences in everyday life is what makes cities better places to live. It improves our lives, makes us more happy and helps us to be better neighbours.
IT'S ALL ABOUT MICRO INTERACTIONS
Our individual experience of a place is made up of many micro interactions. Creating more joyful micro interactions enhances our experience. A micro interaction can be anything. That’s why urban living can be beautiful. Equally, negative micro interactions have a reverse effect on individual experiences. That’s why urban living can also be frustrating.
Less negative, more joyful micro interactions = nicer experiences, better cities, improved lives.
PASSIONATE ABOUT CREATING GREAT WORK
Inspired by the field of User Experience (UX) in design and technology, UXcities is an innovation+design co-lab bringing together different disciplines to solve problems and improve people's experiences in cities. We are a social enterprise based in the beautiful and international city of Geneva, Switzerland. Social impact is our main measure of success and we reinvest our profits into our mission; making cities better by improving individual experiences.
