  • After redesigning, Josh Jordan reached me with a new business idea. preHIRED was taking shape in his mind and an important part of that new endeavor was to build a website that'd reflect his vision and also that'd be effective on bringing qualified leads.

  • What went right

    We had a tight schedule to launch the website and we were able to work incrementally releasing fixes and improvements almost in a daily basis.

  • What went wrong

    We struggled a bit getting the SEO and some other optimizations right so the website could work as a performant lead collector.

“We genearted 892 leads and over $25k in revenue in our first month! Thanks Guilherme!”

"Guilherme is, hands-down, the most talented designer I have ever met. His sensitiveness, good taste and eye for details are just the tip of the iceberg of good things I could say about him. He is also am impressive illustrator. From comic strips, to icons, to full-featured user interfaces, he always creates amazing solutions. His comprehensive knowledge in user experience and usability; skills in HTML, CSS and JS coding makes him a unique front-end developer. I just feel blessed having him as a friend and working partner.

"It’s rare that you come across a standout talent like Guilherme. Guilherme worked out of Brazil as a contractor for our design team in Sydney. The first thing I noticed about Guilherme are his unparalleled design skills. It was also inspiring to see Guilherme tackling each challenge he was given with enthusiasm and to make the impossible possible. Guilherme is a very pleasant person to work with, has a good sense of humour and integrated very well in our team and workflows. Guilherme would be a true asset for any positions requiring a senior designer and comes with my heartfelt recommendation. "

"I worked with Guilherme to design a set of landing pages and ad units to be A/B tested for my B2B software client. Guilherme studied and understood the wireframes, style guide, offer, and test hypotheses to create beautiful, communicative, and convincing compositions. He has a positive attitude, clear communication, and his designs were detailed, polished, and professional. He designed multiple versions of the pages to test layout and messaging hypotheses. I'm certain that these pages will result in improved conversion rates and happier customers for my client. I would be happy to hire Guilherme again for UX, landing pages, ad units, logos, or print design work. A+ work! "
