Research and strategy

I do the research and set the strategy. From start to finish, the most important step before any project can start, research is the most important part of any project. Your competitors are out there, including your key search words, which is where strategy will come into play.

Wireframes and design

I’ll create complete user maps and low-fidelity layouts before the project starts, to compare research with copy and design. This is a great way to ensure proper user design for your website as well as your brand.

What are wireframes?

Development and scale

Capitalize on low hanging fruit to identify a ballpark value added activity to beta test. Override the digital divide with additional clicks along the information highway.

Testing and evaluation

Iterative approaches to corporate strategy foster collaborative thinking to further the overall value proposition. Organically grow the holistic world view of innovation.

I believe in creating a meaningful experience for clients. To create purpose-driven brands where people can discover their own brand purpose through digital marketing by creating emotional human interactions and relationships.

I have spent many years in the Corporate Environment, which gave me knowledge in all aspects of design. I have great respect for all previous designers and Art directors I worked with, as I have gained so much valuable knowledge from every project.

What I loved about each place of employment, is that I had to adapt to the different software and the different ways of thinking. This got me truly inspired, and I am now teaching myself software like Cinema 4D and After Effects to combine the two. Just 4 years ago, when starting a new position, I was forced to learn InDesign & Illustrator, as I only had knowledge of CorelDraw & Photoshop. Now I am proud to say, I have done Annual reports of more than 150 pages and even a 400-page Dictionary in Indesign. I have mastered what I thought I would never be able to do, from web design, social campaigns, short videos and so much more!
