The UXPH Research Team conducts studies to further understand and analyze the UX Design landscape within the Philippines. Our team's goal is to produce comprehensive reports of trends that describe how UX and design is integrated and implemented throughout various industries in the country. Our reports will help practitioners and companies adopt a more data-driven understanding to designing solutions that address problems and pain points in our nation.

Intro to the UXPH Research

Welcome to the UXPH Research team page! It conducts studies to further understand and analyze the User Experience (UX) landscape in the Philippines. Our teamโ€™s goal is to share reports that describe the UX industry and how it is adopted across various sectors in the country. We regularly explore and publish reports that serve as a reference point for practitioners and companies towards a more data-driven understanding of their work.

The UXPH research team is composed of two main subgroups namely the 3T (Think Tank Team) and the RSA (Research Support Arm).

The 3T drives the main research activities of the research team. They are responsible for executing the research mission-vision of UXPH, determining research questions, designing experiments, developing instruments, collecting and analysing data and releasing reports and data-driven policies and recommendations for broader dissemination. These reports are open, free and available for everyone who wish to use them. The 3T is composed of subject matter experts (SMEs) in their field that contribute to useful insights in the research process.

The RSA enables the main research activities held by the 3T. It is composed of a team of visual storytellers, data encoders and enthusiastic volunteers who contribute in the collection of data and preparation of reports by the research team. The RSA serves as an early starting point for volunteers interested in pursuing research as it equips them with meaningful experience to learn the ropes of industry research.

In 2021, we have published and released the first ever State of UX in the Philippines (aka SOUP) report. In the next years, we wish to uncover on specific pain points in the industry such as career transitioning, salaries and hopefully even design systems.
