What will work best

I enjoy when great developers take beautiful design and carefully bring it to life, implementing all the tiny, seductive details. The result is amazing applications that nearly sell themselves.

My help is most effective for medium-to-small businesses, where I get the opportunity to build more intimate relationships and execute rapidly on projects of any scale.

We’re not the best match if…

  • You’re looking for a commodity designer to stamp out screen layouts according to a checklist. I want to help you build the best solution possible given our combined expertise, which means open discussion and trust from both sides.
  • You don’t have a solid developer team on hand, and don’t have intentions to hire one down the line. I’m a designer and focus entirely on the visual side of things, so I don’t write code for any of the projects.
  • You believe that it’s possible to disrupt the industry by great design only. We all know that stellar projects need to be perfectly designed, brilliantly developed, smartly managed and even better marketed.
  • You love to poke, prod and micromanage your team. That just won’t be necessary.
  • You’re looking for the lowest rate or your project scope is very small. Then it’s probably not a good fit for high-touch consulting services.

Ready to get started?

Before anything, please have a look at Correlation and see if this monthly consulting service is a good fit for your business. That’s the easiest and most effective way to get my help (the cost-to-value ratio makes it a no-brainer!). Or we could start a full-size consulting project — then the waiting list will be much longer.

In any case, I’d love to learn more about your business and the problems you’re facing. Please get in touch at with any questions or ideas.

Client success stories

Jane is consummate professional when it comes to all aspects of interface and experience design.

It is a such relief to find a subject matter expert whom I can trust to give me the best the best possible advice and guidance when building even the most complex applications.

Iain Dooley

I’ve worked with a variety of designers for the past 20 years and Jane is the best one by far.

She is hyper-aware of the user experience. She has great taste and is on top of things you may have forgotten. I highly recommend her.

Emanuel Younanzadeh

Jane asked all the right questions about our goals and requirements for our new product, and not only did she interpret our needs perfectly, but she was proactive about making additional design suggestions that enhanced the user experience.

Jane delivered the unicorn of consulting: speedy turnarounds, amazing quality, and everything on budget.

Joanna Wiebe at Copy Hackers

There’s no hand-holding with Jane. I give her a high-level objective of what I want to accomplish and some clues for the way I want my visitors to feel and she uses her considerable talents to take it from there.

I’m in business for long-term results. I will use Jane’s work for years and make many multiples of her cost during this time. She’s #1 on my list, every time.
