Design Thinking tips

Simple Websites & Apps are better for your customers

Many users get overwhelmed by overly complex websites and apps with confusing information architecture and massive menus.

Through UX design techniques we will make things simple for your product or site users. Simple solutions reduce the cognitive load within your users and this impacts engagement, sales and conversion.

What you want is what they call ‘invisible design’, which is where your customers flow through your content uninterrupted by the design itself.

Let user research guide your business decisions

Without user research, many key business decisions in design and marketing can come down to the politics of stakeholder opinions.  These opinions can be very expensive downstream, especially if they are inaccurate and unquantifiable.

The savings in development costs and the ability to create something of value for your customers comes down to utilising the benefits of conducting user research at the beginning of the project.

 

Effective Branding is about simplifying and clarifying your  content

The challenges to effective Branding often occur because the content is not unique or strategic. Often the messaging is unclear and the brand has no clear differentiation by using generic stock images and similar copywriting.

This then flows on to digital marketing where expensive mistakes often occur with the little wonder of what just happened.

I can help you simplify your message and clarify your content so that your marketing makes more of an impact. I achieve this through combining photography with all the other elements which make your customers know, love and respect the people and ideology behind the business. This works.

I sit somewhere between hiring an Agency and employing a Designer

One of the problems with Agencies is the high fees (Over $200 per hour) and often difficulty in getting direct access to the designers themselves. With Agencies, communications go through Account managers who then pass feedback and communications on to designers. This process can be slow and expensive.

When working with me, you get direct access to me, and my rate is only $120+GST per hour. I can offer this discount of 40% of what an Agency will charge as I do not have the overheads of staffing or cost of larger premises like that of a Design Agency. The only drawback is that I get booked out and have a booking timeline so reach out if you have a project.
