Gain confidence and make more money with better websites
Like most junior designers working in-house or freelancing my dream was to design great websites to be recognized as top designer in this highlighy competitive field.
But I failed at it because I didn't have the right methodology to create successful websites in order to satisfy the stakeholders and clients expectations.
Solving the wrong problem positions you as an amateur and makes you lose credibility in the eyes of both clients and stakeholders.
You struggle to design effective websites and to be seen as an expert because your process is confusing and relies too much on creating pretty websites.
You don't solve the right problem and this leads to bad results and frustrations from your stakeholders and clients.
I know that designing websites that people love to use and that helps you to make money is hard and comes with many challenges.
So if you’re sick of…
Being lost about where and how to start your design project;
Feeling stressed about meeting stakeholders or clients expectations;
Being controlled by stakeholders or clients;
Feeling burned out and overwhelmed about the process of solving the right problem with your website design;
Wasting time searching for reliable resources to improve your UX design and Web design skills;
I can help you overcome these challenges.
Today, I am trusted by stakeholders and clients in general as I have helped several of them create engaging interfaces to reach their business goals.
I also help designers to create better websites, to teach them how to overcome these challenges by in-depth articles that constitute the basis of the present guide.
This is why I feel you and know how I can help you succeed.
