He was also extremely knowledgeable about the specific user community and in-tune with trends and user design of other software manufactures."

WIREFRAMES

I can create wireframes quickly so that all stakeholders can benefit from seeing their requirements integrated into the first iteration of design.

USER CENTRED DESIGN

By bringing your users into the design process we can ensure the UX design directly meets users’ needs and requirements. Happy users mean happy business stakeholders.

WORKFLOW

Waterfall, Agile, Lean, or whatever your process is I can work with it. I’ve had considerable experience with UX project planning recommending plans that are designed to work seamlessly with your organization.

USER RESEARCH & TESTING

The key to a good user experience is understanding the users, whether you have your own internal customer insights or require me to collect and analyze your market.

MOCKUPS & PROTOTYPES

I transform  wireframes into visual designed mockups that communicate the look and feel of the final solution. I create working prototypes so that users and stakeholders can experience the design without the need for other resources to design and code.

MULTI-DEVICE DESIGN

Today’s digital world is accessed on multiple devices. I create UX designs that are optimized to work with multiple devices. I can take into account responsive frameworks like Bootstrap or hand-coded breakpoints.
