When we met Sophie, we quickly saw what an asset she would be to R.E.M. Residential. Sophie is not just hugely talented at design, she is highly technical as well, which is an unusual combination. She is an extraordinary writer, is organized, and manages anything tech-related with ease.

Full Testimonials
First, I thoughtfully engage with my client to elicit qualitative and quantitative information such as key problems, system needs, and non-functional wants.
I then analyze the data and present the findings in easy-to-understand formats for business, technical and/or design-centered professionals.
Next, I use the findings to sketch low-fi wire-frames and design content. This goes back and forth with the client, with the purpose being to understand exactly what is wanted.
Once the sketches have been accepted, I produce mid-fi mock ups in Sketch App/Photoshop that present a closer representation of how the system will look.

I can also create hi-fi mock-ups which include functionality - the client can click around.
If the system is a website or web app, I can develop it using front end applications and languages - HTML, CSS and JavaScript.
Once the system is complete, I can create a handover document that includes information including research, analysis, design and development documentation, system testing and user manuals.
