It was a wonderful experience working with Shannon. She took on a challenging project for us with an uncertain outcome. Her research expertise resulted in a final product that far exceeded my expectations.  The creativity and customer focus Shannon brought to my project was impressive! I look forward to working with her again.

“I hired Shannon when I was with Access Graphics and again for Tendril Networks. We found Shannon’s input very helpful and appreciated that she found a way to work within our tight budget. You’ll see upon reviewing her credentials that it’d be pretty hard to find a more qualified and experienced user interface expert. I highly recommend Shannon.”

Your comprehensive site review and professional analysis, usability testing, navigation card sort, and design style guide set our redesign efforts on a clear course that helped us improve site usability.

Shannon and I have an interesting work relationship. She did UX consulting work for me in the early days of Netscape and then she and I worked together later, both as independent UX consultants. She’s a delight to work with and I value her experience and insights. It’d be hard to find a more efficient, effective, reliable usability/user experience consultant who provides quality and insightful results, no matter what the project constraints may be. I’d love to work with her again!

I hired Shannon as our company’s first U/X expert consulting resource. I was very pleased with her ability to navigate a startup environment, educate the sr. leadership on the value and need for U/X expertise, and the expertise she brought to the execution and delivery of consumer testing and feedback that we needed at the time. We’ve just hired her for a follow-on project. Welcome back!l
