People Love Us

Some of the beautiful comments we’ve received on our UX services, consulting, Axure prototyping, and training.

Thanks so much for the [Advanced] Axure training. We here at Epsilon absolutely loved it and have already recommended that one of our team members take the next one.

The pace was great, I realize we ended up with more time than we needed both days, but that’s so much preferable to the opposite. It felt like you covered exactly the right amount of material.

The format was a little unexpected in that it didn’t feel very linear, but for an advanced class it felt right that it wasn’t. i.e. It felt more like a string of “You’ve probably run into this problem. Well, here’s the solution…” than “Now we know A, let’s move on to A+B.” It felt like we weren’t wasting any time with review and just got into the meat of the training. (Thank you, thank you for sending out the training file with all the grunt work finished.) Also, your approach of breaking it up into smaller modules made it feel more nimble and customized to the group.

Finally your presentation style was great. It was very helpful and friendly but still organized and authoritative. It’s a hard balance to strike but you nailed it.

I wish I had concrete pointers for you on how to improve the training, but I’m honestly stumped.

UX Designer at Epsilon

Our client needed to get their whole design team proficient with Axure. Debbie worked with us to create a curriculum that benefitted both novices and the intermediate team members. Her conversational style and real world experience made the dense material fun and easy to absorb. Our client was thrilled and immediately started putting the lessons into practice. We are very lucky to have worked with Debbie. I look forward to working with her in the future.

Debbie is an absolutely brilliant prototyper and if you’re reading this you should hire her! She really came through for us and was extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of prototyping. She delivered everything on time, to full spec and was always contactable. I really hope to work with her again!

Debbie has a talent to explain things in a very practical and easy to follow style. She showed our team the basic ropes of Axure and enabled us to start exploring additional functionality on our own. I especially liked that her teaching style is very hands on, guiding her students through step by step examples. She inspired all of us to start utilizing Axure as a prototyping and wireframing tool.

Axure Ninja doesn’t begin to describe Debbie’s addition to a UX project. She has mastered the tool, that’s not in question, but her true worth lies in collaboration, ideation and execution. Debbie is smart, fast, and able. A great attitude, a quick study and a solid producer. If you get a chance to work with her, jump at it.

Debbie’s Axure​ training is absolutely THE BEST program available. I have tried several online courses, two thick books, a few short seminars, and even a two-day competitive bootcamp, and NONE of them even came CLOSE to the quality of Debbie’s course. While other trainers seem to jump randomly from topic to topic, she takes you through the program in a logical flow, making sure that you understand each concept before moving onto the next. She is great at assessing the level of her students, and allows you to set the pace that works best for you. Her calm style and friendly demeanor puts her students at ease and makes the program seem much less intimidating.

Debbie is a good choice to gain a solid foundation in Axure knowledge. Her training is very flexible and reliable. Whether you want to learn something specific or are just getting started Deb will put together a plan that works specifically for you. I felt Deb went above and beyond to accommodate my schedule (3 hour time difference) and answered all e-mails and questions very promptly.

I’m a newbie to Axure, as green as it gets. Axure’s videos proved to be too advanced and only confused me. What I needed and wanted was to first be introduced to the UI and have it explained to me at a very basic level. I wanted to watch something then have the confidence to be able to do it myself in the real world. Debbie’s style makes it easy to understand, easy to keep up with, and by the end made me less scared of the Axure program. No other resource or video I’ve seen so far has explained things so well. Some people are born to teach and Debbie is one of them.

The instructor is very clear and is easy to understand. This goes a long way for me. Also, the instructor breaks down concepts into bite sized chunks so it’s much easier to learn. I take a lot of courses here at Udemy, Treehouse and and she ranks amongst the best.

I found this course to be the perfect way to get going with Axure RP Pro 7. Debbie gets straight to it and there was no fluff or wasted time in the videos. I learned a lot and I’m confident now to explore Axure further on my own. Of course I will be signing up for Debbie’s other Udemy course, I want to learn more!

I enjoyed this course. It was well-presented and provided a good solid overview of the basic elements of Axure RP Pro. As an almost complete beginner to Axure (I’d used it prior for one week) this course helped me discover things about Axure I wasn’t aware of and helped make the interface a lot less daunting.

Debbie is the best damn Interactivity/Usability Designer I’ve had the pleasure of working with.

We started working with Business Analysts to create Use Cases and User Stories, and thankfully realised this was a big waste of money. We saw many wireframes plus a few prototypes and were impressed most with Debbie’s work.

We’ve since felt even more impressed with how Debbie’s been able to understand our complex user requirements and how she’s providing valuable feedback and guidance that is translating into a much improved product build. In the past we made the mistake of building demo versions of online products (they weren’t ‘supposed’ to be demo versions), and are now completely bought into the time and cost saving prototyping approach.

Debbie works fast, is up to speed on so many aspects of her trade, is trustworthy, and is passionate about getting the best finished product.
