Can you help us in our focus groups?

Every so often a job comes in that stands out from the crowd as being particularly captivating or interesting. Naturally, different jobs appeal to different people but our latest British Library project is right up my straße as a one-time English Graduate.

Our brief is to conceptualise and design a site to support the Library's upcoming exhibition, Evolving English: a showcase of how and why our language has developed and changed over the ages. The magic of the exhibition is that it will be supported by dozens of astoundingly important documents and iconic texts such as Beowulf, Shakespeare folios and the King James Bible and we want to convey this magic in the online experience we are creating.

On the 8th September we are running focus groups at the Library to try and better understand how we can engage with website users through online tools that support the exhibition.

In total we are looking for 20 people who are;

  • ‘Creatively cultured’ and open to ideas-based exhibitions
  • Ideally, but not necessarily students of English, languages, history
  • Between 16 – 40
  • Internet Users
  • Use a form of social network or other online tool
  • Articulate
  • Comfortable communicating in English
  • Haven’t been to focus group in past 3 months
  • Happy working in groups

We will be running 2 sessions with 10 people in each and you will be handsomely rewarded for your time.

Session 1: 9am - 12pm
Session 2: 2pm - 5pm

If you fancy getting involved and can make either of the 2 sessions on the 8th please contact either Michael or myself as soon as possible.

Not only will you be involved in the creation of something compelling, you will also be given more tea and biscuits that you can shake a sizeable stick at.
