I feel grateful to have designed for a handful of hard working and bright folks. Here is a little of what they have to say about what it's like to work with me.
"I highly recommend working with Holly. She is creative, easy to work with, and delivers thoughtful and beautiful designs. She is user-focused, a great communicator, and great at guiding early-stage teams through design thinking. I initially hired Holly to work with us on figuring out the user experience and work flows for our very first demo and we have continued to work with her since. Holly filled a crucial gap by taking us from high-level product intuition and technical prototyping (with inscrutable command-line output) to a design demo that key stakeholders found exciting (and a compelling extension of their current workflows) and whose value even non-stakeholders could easily understand. She was organized and methodical about walking us through user interviews and creating our user personas. She was also patient about getting our team up to speed on design thinking. I had been concerned about how things might go with bringing a designer into such a technical product so early, but Holly handled everything well, including doing the appropriate background reading and research to get up to speed. What I've liked most about working with Holly is that she has not just been helping us build design artifacts, but also much deeper understanding of who we're building for and why we're building it."
