Review of The Design Yard by Yasmin

Sam was an absolute dream to work with. His skills are second to none - he has created the most beautiful website for our company from scratch. He worked with our company as if he was part of the team, and believed in the vision wholeheartedly. He worked with us to understand the vision of the company and contributed to the visioning process with us. It felt like Sam became part of the team, rather than just working with a "freelancer". He has built us the most stunning website, beautifully designed with one-of-a-kind functionality. I have such little tech knowledge, and Sam has the ability to understand what we want and convert that into amazing functionality, whilst also explaining the technical challenges in simple language so I always felt up to date with what was happening. I cannot stress enough that if you want to work with someone who's impressive skills are matched by enthusiasm Sam is your man! A huge thank you to Sam, as a new property portal, our company literally wouldn't exist without you!

Sam impressed me straight away by responding to every question and application criteria in his initial cover letter. The work he produced was off an incredibly high standard on the first draft, and I appreciated that Sam was happy to work with our specs but also bring in different elements of his own. Communication was easy, it was a pleasure to work with Sam and I definitely recommend him!

Sam is one of those rare finds on. He is very knowledgeable with web languages and a fantastic designer. He implemented our entire platform from scratch and learn to work with a 3rd party app that we had already signed up for. Can't wait to work with him again in the near future..

Sam was able to deliver high quality work at an extremely fast turnaround without much guidance needed. He is thorough in his research, notes and the detail of his designs. Thanks to Sam's hard work, our agency won a pitch for a large scale project with a high calibre client. I look forward to working with Sam more in the future.

What makes a great website?

A great website is one that tells your story to the customer. A good website will pitch your products or services in the best possible light. For us, of course, the best website is also beautiful and well designed because that our selling point.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

What makes your business unique?
Do you want us to handle everything?

When do you need it finished?
Can you tell us all about your business and what you want to achieve?

What do you love most about your job?

I wanted to create digital products like apps, websites and advertising since I was 12 so for me this is a passion. I started my limited company to expand and share that passion with more people than ever. I am an entrepreneur at heart and I love business dynamics.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I wanted to be closer to clients, in previous positions, all of the praise for my work went to managers above me, I believe what I have and what I started is rare as I value good work over money.

Depton Shoes

The Brief Depton was pretty tired of the basic WordPress template that did not display their business objectives and values correctly. The project started with a review of competitors websites plus drawing up a document outlining the process, competitor features and also outlining areas where Depton could outperform the competition. The actual work started by setting up a set of wireframes for the client. The wireframes allow us and the client to look at the site from a purely content aspect. Designs were then drawn up from the wireframes adding the finishing touches like animation planning and planning for how the site would integrate with the CMS.

Festivault Web App

The Brief Festivault is a beta product aiming to bring the films from the festival to the user sat at home, the expense of getting tickets and transfers for the biggest film events can run into the thousands. Saj and Hamzah are famous film makers and we custom built a systsem on Uscreen to run thier online festival.

Peekaboo Children's Shampoo

The Brief I was hired to create two homepage concepts for a children's shampoo and body wash brand. The brief was to create two separate versions for the client to pick from. The first was more photo oriented and the second was more illustrated. Doing custom illustrations was great fun particularly this little cute hedgehog I created. The process was different for this project as the deadline was in two days. I am happy to report that the project was delivered on time and to specification.
