"I worked hand to hand with Carlos for over a year while the company he was working for was building out a social media site for the company I am working for. Carlos is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to UI/UX Development. I can honestly say he knows exactly how to write proper code, his design skills are unmatched against most and he understood exactly what we were asking him to do and he produce a finished product which made it a pleasure and easy to work with him. I hope we will get another opportunity to work together in the future.

"O Carlos é sem dúvida um excelente profissional. Com o trabalho dele aqui na Assembleia conseguimos remodelar uma série de portais e dar um caráter profissional às interfaces dos portais e sistemas. O Carlos tem um perfil raro de Web Designer que é bom na parte de criação e muito efetivo na parte de implementação da concepção final. Lembro de vários trabalhos que pensei que seria muito difícil de implementar o layout proposto e que ele conseguiu fazer com agilidade e fidelidade à proposta. Outro ponto importante a destacar no perfil do Carlos é que ele pega muito rápido a ideia do que comunicar e de pra quem comunicar, ao mesmo tempo que é flexível com as sugestões e opiniões dos usuários/clientes. Recomendo muito o trabalho dele."August 11, 2014

Usability Testing and User Research

Usability tests are of great value when it comes to make user-friendly products. I am able to go from very simple hallway test to a complex and well-documented usability test. Evaluate and measure the overall users’ experience and satisfaction is the essence of a good development.

Google Analytics

Data tells us part of the story. By crossing statistics, usability tests and feedback from users we certainly can understand the whole story much better, right? Besides Google Analytics, I also use A/B Testing, Heat Map Testing and Data analysis
