Director of User Experience

It was a wonderful experience working with Shannon. She took on a challenging project for us with an uncertain outcome. Her research expertise resulted in a final product that far exceeded my expectations. The creativity and customer focus Shannon brought to my project was impressive! I look forward to working with her again.

Thumb Up
UX Research Director

I feel like there are two layers of results which Sage provides us. The first layer provides the answers to our original problem at hand, and they are VERY actionable. The second layer goes up and beyond our expectations. Sage packages up research themes so nicely that we’re able to apply the research to further projects down the line and build up our general knowledge base.

Your comprehensive site review and professional analysis, usability testing, navigation card sort, and design style guide set our redesign efforts on a clear course that helped us improve site usability. The detailed reports are full of examples, explanations and visual aides that continue to be a valuable reference as we continue our efforts to improve The Florida Bar website. We are happy to serve as a reference and to recommend Sage Research & Design as an excellent resource for improving usability.

I hired Shannon when I was with Access Graphics and again for Tendril Networks. We found Shannon’s input very helpful and appreciated that she found a way to work within our tight budget. You’ll see upon reviewing her credentials that it’d be pretty hard to find a more qualified and experienced user interface expert. I highly recommend Shannon.
