Testimonials

"Calliope worked with us on personas for a client, covering UK, USA and Australia. Her approach was thorough and professional throughout, making sure she gave us a clear view of where she was and where the data was taking her which in turn allowed us to re-think our approach to the project."

"We worked with Calliope over a period of several months on an international research project and got to know her well. She is a very responsive and detail-oriented researcher, and engages enthusiastically and critically with research questions. In Calliope, you will find a staunch advocate of the user's perspective - a useful north star to any design project."

"Calliope assisted me with one of our client's requests for usability assistance on an early prototype. We discussed a wide range of User-Centered Design techniques and processes to agree on a triangulation approach of usability testing, card sorting and the ISO standard SUS questionnaire. She was very open to feedback and her final report, recommendations and edited video were insightful and clearly addressed the issues with the prototype. I look forward to working with her again whether on an ongoing basis as this project matures or other projects that require a wide range of knowledge and skills."

"Calliope joined the team part-way through the initial concept creation phase of a digital design project and was able to pick up the work swiftly. This required thorough investigation of existing materials, frequent communication with the other designers and the capacity to continue creating relevant and purposeful ideas. Calliope led a number of interactive working sessions to develop the concepts and she subsequently produced sketched representations of these concepts. Calliope then worked with the team to enhance the fidelity and breadth of the concepts so that they were fit for one round of remote user testing."

"Calliope is unique. While working at Three as a designer I worked as a partner with Calliope who was our UX lead. We worked on many projects, in particular a PAy As You Go comparison page. Calliopes attention to detail an through research ensured we delivered a truly successful solution. Being involved in Calliopes user testing enabled me to tailor a design which benefited the user and the business. Anyone who hires Calliope will get a passionate individual who will bring creativity, and an exceptional understanding of the needs of users."

"Calliope produced an excellent logo design for the EngD Centre at UCL. She submitted several high quality iterations to a brief, and was committed to producing the final version. Good work!"
Jamie O
"Calliope was an asset to our team providing valuable input into the digital design process. Her approach to web design was rooted in clear values of usability and she was a fount of pertinent reading materials regarding this and wider principles of web design. She also showed her ability in developing using WordPress, html, css, PHP and MySql databases. When confronted with a problem she always showed a tenacity in trying to work her way around it while still delivering web builds that satisfied WC3 standards. I would recommend Calliope for a role where she is given space to input into the design and build phases of web design working as part of an experienced and dedicated team."
