What Makes Me Different & Why You’ll Love Working With Me

Need Something? Let's Talk

Stellar Work Ethic

I am a true expert when it comes to productivity and time-keeping. I have never missed a deadline in the entirety of my career and never intend on doing so. If something needs to be done, I will get it done no matter what it takes.

Intuitive Problem Solving

I can tackle any design problem I’m faced with by using proven & tested user experience practices. My designs are purely results-oriented and their preliminarily focus is to captivate potential customers and maximise conversions.

Can-Do Attitude

I like being pushed out of my comfort zone & I love learning new things. I strive to keep up with modern web standards & trends. I take my career very seriously and am available to assist my clients on a daily basis even after project completion.

A Glimpse Into My Design Workflow

Research

Research is a crucial component of every project I work on. Prior to the initial design phase, I conduct a thorough analysis into my client's target demographic, competitors, business objectives and goals until I'm confident that my findings will transpire into an exemplary finished product.

Draft

I then begin sketching and wireframing, taking into account everything I have learned during the research phase until I’m completely satisfied with the design direction. Using Adobe Photoshop, I then proceed to create polished design mockups for my clients to examine & enjoy.

Revise

Using a combination of client and user feedback, I then spend some time revising the design. Revision can play a key role in getting the most out of your product and should never be overlooked. These revisions can range from completely restructuring content to just a simple colour change.

Finalize

Once everything looks perfect, I very thoroughly check through everything to make sure it is flawless and bug-free across all platforms and devices. I then optimise any graphics used and minify scripts for lightning-fast load times. Finally I package the finished deliverables for my client.

Sam's attention to detail along with the ability to infuse our goals & company values into stunning designs are the reason we will continue to choose him for our design work. His experience, advice & insight into user psychology really took our site to the next level.
Corey Arbogast - x10

Working with Sam over the past year has been an absolute pleasure. He is a true professional and his design work is excellent. Thanks for the beautiful new website Sam, we look forward to working with you again in the near future.
Steve Eschweiler - Hivelocity

I’ve worked with quite a few designers over the past 11 years, but when it comes to UI design Sam is always my top choice. His experience, and ability to comprehend our needs really made it possible for us to provide our customers with a great UX.
Ben Gabler - HostNine

I've worked with Sam extensively over the last few years, and keep coming back. Sam's years of experience have proven to be invaluable time and time again and his passion for design is unrivaled; he won't accept anything but perfection.
Joe Biellik - Radioactive Frog

There are a lot of designers out there who can create aesthetically pleasings websites, but only a select few can really provide solutions that attract businesses & produce results. Sam Asante is a prime example of one of those select few.
