I provide UX and design services for custom enterprise data products. I believe good design goes beyond data visualization and dashboards, and business success stems from the delivery of useful, usable, delightful experiences.

Better design can prevent an analytics-related intiative from becoming one of the 75%+ of "big data" projects that fail. Customers don't care how "big" the data is. But, they do care about user experience, and so good design strategy is good business strategy.

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.

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.
