How can businesses imagine
and create Better Experiences?

In an ever-evolving digital world, businesses and people are the most unpredictable variables. I help organizations to equip themselves with rapid methods and tools to keep up with fast and evolving markets to build solutions that empower and enable their user and their teams for a sustained digital transformation process. I am able to bring together Design + Product Management + Technology to pursue better experiences.

Algorithms still have a long way to go…

To successfully move forward towards Human-centered AI solutions, you need a new way of understanding the many dimensions of your users' needs, motivations and mental models if you truly want to survive in such a competitive and fast market.

According to VentureBeat and Gartner between 80 to 85% of data analytics & AI projects are failing to deliver outcomes. If your solution requires human engagement to produce value, then the user experience of your solution is as important as the technology behind it.

Joana was very candid and generous in sharing her knowledge and experience. She has a tremendous experience in UX. Her talk was not only useful but very inspiring. Our 30 min was really well-spent and I'm glad I chose to reach out to her. She was very enthusiastic on everything UX but also had some specific suggestions and ideas on how to approach the cleint depending on personality type. I'm looking forward to continuing to speak with Joana going forward! Highly recommended!

Joana was friendly and knowledgeable. Together, we went through the design of my project and she gave me a lot of feedback. Furthermore, she gave me some non-design related ideas that were very helpful and I intend to implement. I look forward to having another call with her soon.

Joana was quick to understand the problems I'm trying to solve with my Software. She helped identify the concerns my leads can have during the onboarding process and gave me UX solutions to answer those concerns. We also went through my landing page and there Joana explained me how to think as my potential costumers and craft a copy to get them to sign up.

I can not be more grateful for Joana's call. She gave me stellar feedback on the UX/UI and proposed some important questions on what users may need. I can't recommend her enough if you're in for some insightful feedback on your product. I'm looking forward to talking to her again soon!

Joana did a detailed analysis of our landing page design and gave very good points. She gave ideas on how we can improve the home page and also talked about things that are very important but we are not looking at such as accessibility audits, accordion structure etc. Very insightful on the UX/UI.
