Service Description

I start with researching the features and focusing on the user group to see if they're a winning combination. Then I create low fidelity mock-ups to help flush out the idea and improve it through iterative design process.

Once we're happy with the screen flows, I create click-thru's and test these on our targeted audience. Then we move onto high fidelity mock-ups of the app which we use for the app elements.

I also create a fully detailed spec with everything the developer needs to get their job done. I manage the development process and QA test the app on my device to ensure the design is just right.

I can also help develop a launch strategy that will get your app noticed on iTunes. All my apps have been well received across the globe and I know what it takes to make an app stand out from the rest.
