Overview

www.josephtesta.rocks

For 3 years, I've designed, developed and marketed websites and creations for people and business in Ohio and around the country. I design and code by the mantra "Don't make me think." The best user interface is one that is simple enough to understand without reading and efficient enough to achieve what is needed. To accomplish that, I use minimal and recognizable design patterns. My long term goal is to help build a new layer of the internet, where information is more accessible when it needs to be and private when it...

Service Description

Discovery & Research
I start by collecting assets, understanding the project scope, interviewing users, and asking targeted questions to help determine the emotion behind the brand or idea. Then, I dig deep to understand the industry, competition, and analogous concepts across platforms.

Architecture and Message

For marketing pages, I treat the messaging to capture the user's attention, drive up their interest, and get them to convert. Within the application, I clearly explain what the user can achieve on each interface.

Sketch & Mockup
All of previous components are taken through a bunch of iterations on paper while I explore to find the best flow and design patterns for the site or application. The sketches are brought to life in high quality mockups, which will be presented for feedback of which changes will be made.

Code & Enhance
When mockups are approved I get busy cranking out efficient and reusable code to add the magic that makes the application work. Depending on the scope of the project, this is where we really make things shine; adding animations, transitions, and other components to improve the user's experience.
