    I am a full time UX Designer and so I don't have much time to devote to side projects. By packaging my offerings and showcasing the price, I am attempting to be transparent while implying to prospects that I'm not as flexible with pricing/timing which is what I want. In my experience, many clients just want a set price and a clear indication of what they're getting instead of hourly rates or ranges.

    It's incredibly helpful, thank you so much! I have heard for the second time now that mobile transitions are causing some confusion so I will look at omitting these for sure. It helps with perceived increased load speed.

    I will double check my assets - I am looking closely and see what you are talking about with my logo. Definitely should make that crisper. :)

    I mentioned to a fellow designer above that I cannot show most of my work as it's guarded by NDAs. It is the secondary purpose of the site, first is generating leads as prospective clients - startups or individuals.

    This is great feedback, thank you! I will look at adding prices in. Since my initial launch, I have changed "services" to be "reason for contact" as I want to promote public speaking opportunities as well. This may change the dynamic but I will look into this nonetheless.

    Yes it does! A strategy call worth 60 minutes of my time, resulting in a roadmap & recommendations costs $120.

    When thinking about patterns on the web, one should keep in mind consistency may prove valuable. While it's a cliché, it perfectly describes what I do while inviting collaboration with a prospective client. You aren't my target market so I would expect you to bounce right away. Thanks for your honest feedback anyhow!

    Thanks for your feedback. The majority of my work is guarded by NDAs so I cannot publically display my personal work. Portfolio content is not the primary purpose of the site anyhow.

    With all due respect, the UX of the side navigation could definitely be better... When a category expands down, if you have anything under a 15" screen or unless the browser window is at full size, the subcategories are missing or hidden under the search bar. Nice visual though... :D
