Book me for a free 45mins UX feedback and advice session for your product (A 9y experienced product designer and developer) - Round 3

Jim Zarkadas @jimzarkadas

Hello people!

This is my 3rd round of UX sessions for fellow IndieHackers 🤩.

So far I’ve done 35 1-1 sessions and helped others with their product and landing page UX (round 1 and round 2). I also recently started co-hosting a live-stream show called Feedback Friday where me and 2 fellow design experts give design feedback in public.

Book your session

So far it has been a great success, that's why I decided to do another round and open 7 more spots until the end of next week 🙂

👉 Feel free to book your session here https://calendly.com/jimzarkadas/ux-session

If you don’t make it don’t worry I will open new slots again in the end of next week and will announce in this group.

What you get

  • 45mins 1-1 video call where I present you my feedback as a user and suggest you potential solutions as a product designer.
  • Once we are done with the call I'll send you all of my notes written by email so that you can take another look and ask me any additional questions if needed.

What I ask in return

Nothing. Read below what’s my motivation behind this idea.

Why I am doing this

  • I meet new IndieHackers and expand my network. It feels great to call with others and not stay isolated behind my screen. IndieHackers.com isn't just a business community. We are like a tribe with solid values and I want to make more connections with people that have a similar mindset.
  • By completing the 1st round of session I realized I enjoy a lot teaching fellow indie developers about UX. I am a huge believer of quality and user-driven products and by doing these sessions I can spread my love and knowledge about it.
  • On top of this I get plenty of insights on what you struggle with when it comes to design. Realizing that I enjoy teaching UX that much I decided to start creating free and paid courses on Gumroad and to tweet daily about UX tips

About me

I am an 9years experienced product designer with an engineering background. I built my own boutique design studio https://www.befoolish.co where I reached 120k annual revenue, I worked as the design lead for https://www.ticketswap.com a marketplace with more than 5 million users and I am now building my own products as IndieHacker. I also document and share my journey to indie-hacking on a weekly basis on my journal called "12 months to IndieHacking"

Feel free to comment your thoughts or questions below!

Looking forward to meeting you 🙌

    Thanks for doing this! :) Hope people get some value out of your UX critiques.

    Are you the sole person working at befoolish? I checked out the work there and it looks nice!

      No problem happy to help!

      Regarding befoolish thanks for your kind words! We were 3 people in total. Me and http://twitter.com/yannis_abelas as founders and then Ioanna, an amazing girl we hired as the illustrator of our team.

      I was the engineer back then of the team with no design experience, and I actually learned how to design through Yannis and Ioanna haha.

      Feels like the best investment of my life so far :)
