User Experience

UX is not just a fancy looking visuals, it is a sophisticated process intended to generate and maintain positive attitude of your clients towards your product throughout the whole user journey. From the moment a user sees your ad to the moment she tells friends and family how good your service was, all this has to be flawless and stable all along the timeline.

Defining the user experience is one of my main fields of expertise. For years I was developing UX for different services, involving different target audiences and interaction paradigms. I can help you to establish a good, well thought UX and iterate it to the very perfection.

Usability Engineering

Usability is the degree to which a software can be used by specified consumers to achieve quantified objectives. In majority of cases it's one of the main factors defining the user experience. Usability directly responsible for conversion rates and forms attitude towards your app or service you provide in general. Therefore, it is vitally important for an application to have better usability.

Usability engineering is a term defined by Jacob Nielsen [2]. It is a set of procedures intended to (i) analyse the user interaction model, (ii) setup tests, and (iii) conduct proper studies. I can help you to measure usability parameters, identify problems and propose adequate solutions.

UI Design & Visuals

Usability and UX are very important to keep your customers satisfied, though good looking apps make people go back to them. This is why clean, modern visual design is one of the main components of a good UX and Usability.

I have a lot of experience in visual design and original approach to the problem. Either it is a local re-design work or a design from scratch, it will be delivered to you the best way possible.
