- Provide feedback on design alternatives

What do you know about?
I (Eva Kaniasty) have been doing UX consulting since 2010, so I have quite a few projects under my belt (coming up on 80). Some topics I have hands-on experience with:
- User research methods (user interviews, usability testing, field studies, surveys)
- Content strategy (information architecture, content audits, navigation design and testing)
- Usability reviews (usability and accessibility standards, design patterns)
- UX strategy (for products or organizations)
- UX education or training
- UX resources (books on many topics)
Where do I sign up?
- Schedule an appointment online, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Unless other arrangements are made, sessions are payable by Paypal on the day of the scheduled session.
How should I prepare?
The more information you can bring to the table, the better the advice I can provide. To ensure that we are spending our time efficiently, bring one big question or problem and as much context and background information as you have available.
Meetings can be recorded for client use if desired, including a verbal confidentiality statement.
