Why Phil?

Scott MacDonald

With a passion for design and a commitment to the highest quality experiences, Phil Amour was instrumental in bringing our startup from concept to market adoption in record time. As one of our founding team members at CueHit, Phil demonstrated a highly creative and intuitive sense of design - in all areas of our product and even our brand and marketing assets. He often developed design concepts from scratch and quickly learned a new demographic of users. Phil directly contributed to our rapid success and would be an asset to any team looking for the best in the field.

Phil was the first hire of Lightricks London branch. From the get go Phil was really impressive with the depth in which he analysed the target audience, usability and helped forming the product vision. Phil was able to quickly create innovative designs that facilitated a great user journey. It has been a pleasure working with Phil.

Phil is one of the most professional designers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Always a deep thinker, extreme edge case detector and prototyping master. He’s helped tremendously in taking product design at Lightricks to the next level and I hope our paths cross again soon!

Worked with Phil on an internal Design System that is used across multiple apps. Phil is a professional designer who is comfortable around code and is easy to work with. As an engineer I often find that working with Designers invokes challenges that arise from the different languages we speak, but with Phil it was a breeze, he knows to speak developer, he makes design guides in ways that are easy to implement in code and he provides mocks and prototypes for everything!

Phil is a very talented designer and it was a pleasure working with him and managing him. He is very dedicated to keeping a high quality of work, both from a UX and a UI perspective. Phil is also very organized and knowledgable, always up to date and up to exploring new things. Last but not least, Phil did an amazing job working on Lightricks' Design System! So, go ahead and hire him :)

Arthur Holcombe

Phil is very driven to learn and improve in all aspects of his work. He actively listens, he is thoughtful, and he provides considered ideas. We hired him for UI specialty, but he gradually evolved into our go to person for all iOS, Android and Web UX design. He worked diligently on problems. He sat with our engineers and got things done. He has an eye for detail, and his work was of high quality. He was a key contributor. He also got along well with everyone.

Marc Krejci

Pixel perfect and a year ahead of design trends is how I would describe Phil. I had the great honor of working with Phil on an iOS application for several months, during which he produced designs that followed Apple’s (yet to be announced) Human Interface design guidelines that I hadn’t even been aware of yet. Above all, I was impressed with Phil’s ability to be one of the strongest visual designers I’ve ever worked with, while simultaneously having a great intuitive knack for the UX as well. Phil would be a strong designer to have alongside you for any application requiring stunning interface design (particularly for all things Apple), and I strongly recommend working with him on your next project!

Tobie Azeez

Phil was an excellent designer for my application SwiftDine. He not only was a joy to work with, he took the initiative to add certain things to my application that he thought was necessary. If anyone wants a clean, and polished app designed, he is your man. I would recommend him to anyone. He gets back to you in a timely manner when you have questions, and isn’t opposed to joining group discussions with your team. Worked on 60+ screens for me in about two and a half weeks. Very diligent work this man does.

How does it work?

Brief

You write a brief outlining deliverables and scope of your project, including timing. The brief should ideally anser the following questions:
What are we building? What design problems are we trying to solve? What is expected at the completion of the project? What are the goals and objectives of the new design? What's the target market or audience? What's your budget and schedule? What are the project deliverables?

Contract

I will send a simple contract detailing the scope, delivery & payment schedule.

Work

I begin with analysis, follow up with design or development and share the progress with you with each milestone — communicating on a set schedule. Your feedback is important and I will make refinements accordingly.

Payment

A 20% deposit is due before I start working on your project. Any following invoices will be due in 30 days and payable via a national wire transfer to my US business bank account.

Delivery

Depending on your needs, this could be source code repo hosted on GitHub, Figma file, and/or a high-fidelity Origami prototype. It is preferred to switch to an hourly engagement at this stage so I can coordinate with your engineers on as-needed basis.
