Nightingale Design Research is a research partner that gives you evidence-based recommendations to put you ahead of the competition.

In May 2020, Beeston-based user research consultancy Fowlam became Nightingale Design Research. Since founding Fowlam in 2016, founders Frances and Michael Brown have worked with a very wide range of organisations, including startups, successful local tech companies such as Commify and Silktide, household names like LEGO and government bodies such as The Pensions Regulator and Health Education England, providing rigorous qualitative and quantitative research. They work with companies large and small to clarify their goals and provide practical insights, enabling them to make evidence-based decisions. We research all aspects of your business - your team, your market, your business model and your customers - to provide you with the knowledge you need to put your company ahead of the competition.
