I provide design thinking and solutions at all levels of business, from startups to complex enterprise systems.
Designing for the Internet since 1998. Broad yet deep expertise in user-driven design, including requirements gathering, wireframing and prototyping, conceptual design, interaction and user journeys.
I worked with Jake briefly at Imarda, and have since contracted his services for print and online designs.
I enjoy working with Jake, A) because he's a great guy, and B) because he goes beyond graphical design, considering online product user-experience flows, and marketing conversion rates.
I'll be engaging him more in future, that's for sure!
I worked with Jake & Aflua over a 3 month period in all aspects of the creation of my photography business. Giving Jake a blank canvas to work with along with complete creative freedom, Jake delivered to me to a complete and commercially viable solution fitting to my requirements, vision and business needs...what more could I ask for! I must add, considering I was in the UK and Jake was in New Zealand, the project could have take much longer than 3 months. However, with Jake's hard work, dedication and most importantly great communication skills, the project was delivered on time and was a very enjoyable joint venture.
I would strongly recommend Jake and Aflua without hesitation. In addition and as a testimonial to Jake, I am already looking to start the next phase of my business with Jake in mind to deliver it.
Jake and I got to work on some great projects together. Whether it was a video, or a website, or a magazine, he dug deep beneath my words and found images in them that I could never have imagined on my own. And while his creative eye is second to none, he thinks in numbers too: if it's not on budget, then he'll adapt it to fit.
Jake has endless ideas up his sleeve and he's not afraid to experiment. But he knows when to call it a day if he has to.
I think the biggest credit to him is that when we worked together, it never really felt like work.
I have no hesitation in recommending Jake. He is easy to work with, creative and knowledgeable. I have worked with him on web and offline projects and he has always proved to be an invaluable part of the project.
Jake es una persona de trato muy agradable que me ofreció una gran ayuda profesional sincera y desinteresada. No dudaré en tenerlo en cuenta cuando emprenda mi próximo proyecto empresarial.
Jake has an absolutely excellent understanding of his client's needs and requirements, so while the work is highly creative and meticulously put together it's always very specific to the individual client. He is also an excellent communicator so easy to work with.
