Service Description

Customer experience strategy & design
I believe in creating experiences that deliver results. I focus on finding the most effective and creative solutions by discovering and understanding user needs (involving users directly whenever possible), and combining them with business goals and desired or available technical capabilities to create a design plan that will offer the best possible results.

I then use my 15 years of interactive design expertise to create interfaces and experiences that have proven themselves every time. I understand the importance of combining a clear visual language that speaks the company’s brand, and an interaction language that makes a usable interface to create a product that works while it shines.

Testing is a key a part of my iterative process. Whether a full-blown usability test or the more practical rapid-prototype test, I try to include iterative testing (as budget and time allows) throughout the different stages of design to help maximize the success of the design.

It takes a solid team.
I believe in building dynamic & diverse teams where each member contributes his strengths, and strict role definitions don't limit anyone's contribution.

In order to deliver consistent, reliable, and desirable results whether you're designing or programming or testing, I believe that each team member should have a strong understanding of user-based design principles and know when and how to apply them as part of their current role.

Leading the effort...
