Hey, I'm

Gloria Norvor

I started designing in 2019 as an undergraduate student pursuing a degree in Linguistics.

Why?
Because I started a tech startup at 17 even though I knew nothing about tech.
I dedicated myself to learning diligently.

In 4 years, I:
→ Learnt the art and psychology behind designs.
→ Worked with startups and companies on 3 continents.
→ Went to and won 7 hackathons.
→ Grew a community of 7,500 founders, designers, and developers.
→ Failed 1 startup.
→ Was nominated and won the Best UX Designer of the Year award, 2022.
→ Still learning and building.

Why Unique User Experiences Matter

You already know it does 😉

70% of customers will abandon a business due to poor website design.

Well-designed user interfaces can increase conversion rates by up to 200%

69.57% is the documented online shopping cart abandonment rate.

Every $1 invested in UX results in a $100 return, a 9,900% ROI.

88% of users are less likely to return to a site after a bad experience.

A well-designed UX can increase user retention by 5 times.

My Seven Step Design Process

Process is iterative and could change based on product 🌟

Step 1

Research and Discovery:

  • Conduct user research to understand the target audience, their needs, and pain points.
  • Analyze competitors and industry trends to identify opportunities and challenges.
Step 2

Define User Personas and Goals:

  • Create detailed user personas representing different segments of the target audience.
  • Clearly define user goals and prioritize them based on importance and frequency.
Step 3

Ideation and Wireframing:

  • Brainstorm and generate ideas for solving user problems and meeting goals.
  • Create low-fidelity wireframes to outline the basic structure and layout of the solution.
Step 4

Prototyping:

  • Develop interactive prototypes based on wireframes to simulate user interactions.
  • Test and iterate prototypes to refine the design and gather early feedback.
Step 5

Visual Design:

  • Apply a cohesive and visually appealing design to the prototype, incorporating branding elements.
  • Focus on color schemes, typography, imagery, and other visual elements to enhance user experience.colour
Step 6

User Testing:

  • Conduct usability testing with real users to validate the design's effectiveness.
  • Gather feedback on user interactions, visual appeal, and overall satisfaction.
Step 7

Implementation and Iteration:

  • Collaborate with developers to implement the final design.
  • Monitor the product post-launch, collect user feedback, and iterate on the design based on real-world usage.
The lesser features the better. Don’t waste your time and resources. Start with an MVP.
The lesser features the better. Don’t waste your time and resources. Start with an MVP.

Startups spend between $75,000 and $350,000 to build an MVP.

Design only the important features first. Feedback from users will inform us of what to build next. Laying a good foundation by investing into user experience could save you 75% of iterations costs down the line.

FAQs

What does unlimited designs mean?

On the turbocharged plan, you can request as many design tasks as you’d like throughout the month and I will work through them one at a time, based on when you submitted the request, and what priority you set.

What programs do you design in?

Most requests are designed using Figma.

How does the work process look like?

Discovery call - Contracts signed - 60% payment is made - I send you a work plan with deadlines - Project commences - Final payment is made after delivery. Lots of fun.

How would we communicate?

Based on your preferences we can collaborate using either Trello, Notion or WhatsApp. Weekly video meetings will be done using Google Meet or Zoom.

What other types of design can I request for on the turbocharged plan?

Website design, Brand guides, Social media graphics, Design systems, SAAS, Wireframes, Stationery, Pitch decks, Slide decks, Direct mail, Infographics, Brochures, Signage, Billboards, Email graphics, Resumes
Business cards, Digital ads.

What if I don't like the design?

On the off-chance you’re not happy with the output, I will spend 1 extra month revising the work for free. No questions asked.

Is there anything you don't design?

Absolutely. I don't do the following design works: 3D modelling, animated graphics (GIFS, etc.), document design (medical forms, etc.), complex packaging, and extensive print design (magazines, books, etc.).
