UI design

Published by:

Hello

This is my job. I am specialized in UI and UX more than 5 years.

I did brand user-friendly style for local and international business.

I checked your current web site and its front-end functionality. It is amazing how many functions you provide to customers. Great job!

Of course you want to design the backend, but I want to add some comments about public pages:
– you implemented great instant search, but it does not do suggestions as Google does
– top navigation is too complicated and immediately disappeared if move mouse into wrong position
– page is overloaded by details, let move secondary info on a details page
– comparison: need to add feature to highlight the same values and show/hide them

I attached rough mockup how backend of list of product may look like. Do you want me to complete it?

My rate is $18/hr.

Would glad to work with you sir!

During last 7 years, as a project manager, I communicate with clients, write functional specifications (using best UX practice), make prototypes using Axure and Visio and discuss tech implementation with our development staff.

I setup QA and development process using 3 types of working environments: development, testing and training.

Project Manager

Published by:

Hello sir

Thank you for providing such opportunity to help your team.

I have more than 10 years experience as software developer (PHP, .Net, DB designing), team building and leading, project managing.

I started my own team 6 year ago from 1 person me and now this team includes ~50 high qualified employees with very friendly bonds.

3-4 team members is a very good number to work effectively without any bureaucracy.

The biggest problem of small teams is that one person may do the same time N projects as a developer, PM and QA simultaneously. It always leads to mess.

I am sure that my experience can be beneficial for your team.

Small advice:
– separate duties: developers must do only development staff, QA – only test app, PM – only do management.
– use Trello instead of Asana – it is free and easy. I think it is even more useful to use simple Google Doc
– do not try organize everything
– all team members must have good relationships, no slaves and gods

I think that applying some improvements will take minimum time if your team wishes the same as you.

My rate as PM is 50$/h and I can do all stuff related organizing your work for free, because if you and your team trust me then this process will be easy and take less time, otherwise I cannot help.

Let have a free phone/Skype conversation and then decide about this job.

Have a nice day!!!
