My name is Melissa Skrbic-Huss and there are two things in the world that I'm passionate about: helping others and technology. Ok, I'm passionate about other things too, but if you asked anyone about me that is probably what they would say. But the one thing that I love more than anything else is being able to help people create effective user interfaces!
Creating creating mobile and desktop presences requires many different skill-sets, from information architecture, visual design and front-end development, to conversion analysis, content management, and more. It's not enough to have a great design or a strong technology platform. You need both and they have to be seamlessly integrated. Over the last 10 years, I've worked in boutique agencies to global corporations and gained the experience for managing, designing, and developing websites and apps from concept to launch.
"I've had the pleasure of working with Melissa on several projects, some small and others large. Her creative skill set is impressive and one that I wish I could attain for myself. I learned a lot working with Melissa both as it relates to a host of technologies, as well as the art and science of creating well designed user interfaces and an overall rich user experience. She continuously made herself available for feedback and suggestions, and would take the time to step back and evaluate whether or not the project was in line with the clients' best interest. I would recommend Melissa for any creative team and hope I have the pleasure of working with her again in the future."
"I worked closely with Melissa during her tenure at Amadeus Consulting. Her passion for elevating the creative (UX / UI) bar within our organization was contagious. She developed and honed an excellent creative team and is responsible for the high quality work that we deploy today."
"Through my career, I worked with Melissa through various projects. I have never found someone as passionate and able to quickly build client rapport as Melissa. She immediately gains the respect and trust of clients. She effortlessly understands the vision of each project and she impressively improves upon the look-and-feel and usability of the end product. I have personally seen her involvement with a project convert the final result from an average experience to a unique, creative, and innovative solution that results in an outstanding post launch success. She is a visionary that successfully designs for the future of the web balanced with the reality of the now. I highly recommend Melissa as her involvement is a main factor in guaranteeing a project's success."
"Melissa is creative, innovative, and adept at developing a Web and mobile experience that converts to revenue. She leads others by inspiring those around her with quick turn around on her deliverables, listening and discerning team, client, and senior staff input to deliver the best user experience, and always maintaining a positive attitude no matter how crazy busy things get."
"Melissa is a complete joy to work with. She has incredible design skills, and a great attitude. Melissa is always willing to help out whenever she can to accomplish goals, and works very well within our team as well as with other internal clients. She takes direction well and picks up quickly and easily where others leave off or fall short."
"Melissa worked tirelessly to accomodate all the changes and opinions of the company executives. She did an exceptional job, was very patient, and was completely committed to an excellent outcome."
