My call with Joana was fantastic! I was feeling overwhelmed by trying to figure out user flow for my site and Joana gave me a very clear structure and process for gathering actionable user research to inform the site structure and content types - including taking into account user age/generation. Her guidance felt like a lightbulb going off and a real relief to have a process to follow. She also gave me advice on how to find the available tools to help with this. Loved this call!! I highly recommend Joana! What a gem. Thank you Joana!

Thank you Joana for your support and suggestions! You were great in calming me down and reducing my overwhelm of the upcoming prototype presentation. You were very friendly and understanding of my situation. My key take-aways were: - design system like from airtable have a direct link to building the frontend - you suggested more creative ways to finally have access to lawyers as users - you made me take a step back and focus on how to build trust with the user in our AI system - you provided a number of resources, including an entire book, great material to dig further! Thanks a lot for sharing your insights with me, providing valuable feedback + encouraging me to stress less about the design!

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.

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.
