I provide UX and design services for custom enterprise data products, apps, and decision support tools. I believe successful design for analytics goes beyond data visualization and dashboards, and business success stems from the delivery of useful, usable, delightful experiences.
While better design can prevent your analytics-related intiative from becoming one of the 85%+ of "big data" projects that fail, that's just the start. Your customers demand good user experience and simple tools. Your business wants to see outcomes like better decision making, easier sales, and increased profit.
Design is the glue that facilitates all of these goals.
“One of the key capabilities Brian brought to the table was the ability to help us distinguish between "vanity" analytics and "actionable” analytics, so that our service’s data was always presented in a way to help users actually make better business decisions. In the end, the prospects to whom we showed Brian’s designs were wowed by the extremely clean and elegant presentation of our video analytics, and we got excellent feedback that this design was much better than the existing, highly established players in this space.
My consultancy specializes in design and UX strategy for custom enterprise data products and applications. Client deliverables vary with each Service Offering but may include:
- Advice (audits, advisory services, etc)
- Strategy (clarifying business and user goals, roadmaps, sprint planning, use case development, and especially problem definition and exploration)
- Process review (is your development process helping or hurting the delivery of good UX?)
- UX research (e.g. usability studies and user interviews)
- Sketching and workflow diagrams (low-fidelity design)
- Visual / UI design / data visualization improvements
We can discuss which activities are relevant to the Service Offering you're interested in during your free consultation call.
Past Clients and Companies I've Worked With
“When Brian came on board, he helped us significantly accelerate our design efforts and meet our major enterprise clients’ expectations and deadlines. We have gotten a lot of mileage out of his work, and we've received good responses from our customers. I can’t recommend him enough.
