Web App & Dashboard (UI Design)
Would you like to find a reliable designer that can help you craft a great web app?
Or have a tailor-made dashboard design that looks stunning, just like those of billion-dollar companies like Facebook, Airbnb, or Apple?
Would you enjoy working with an expert with over 8 years of experience that understands your needs right away and gets you the results you want quickly and without making you waste dozens of hours on micro-management, misunderstandings and communication issues?
If you even partially answered yes to any of these questions or would like to bring your app experience to the next level, you probably thought of hiring a freelance designer to help you achieve the results you desire within a small amount of time and without spending much money.
Imagine investing just a tiny amount and achieving the same visual design experience of billion dollar companies.
What would the extra ROI of this premium user experience mean for your (or your client’s) business?
Increasing the retention rate of the users of your web app up to 53%?
Increasing the conversion rate of free to paid customers up to 87.3%?
Winning that funding round since your web app impressed investors with its solid brand and visual identity?
By choosing to work with me, you will have the opportunity to work with a UI and Brand Designer with over 8 years of experience, and I will deliver high-quality results at a very convenient price.
For more than 8 years, I have helped companies in all sorts of fields and situations, from multi-million dollar companies looking to scale to the next level, to startups with their first million dollars in funding, and even early-stage startups who were looking to raise their first hundred thousand dollars in funding.
My premium web app designs follow the most cutting-edge UI/UX practices to maximise the chance that the final solution will achieve the business results and KPIs that you want.
The best part is that my UI designs are optimised and delivered in a format that will be extremely easy and smooth for developers to implement.
For many, finding a good designer is the biggest challenge.
There are tens of thousands of designers out there, and many will give you headaches for several reasons, including:
• Bad or Inconsistent Design Quality
• Missed Deadlines (Most Popular Complain)
• Communication problems (they will waste you hours upon hours)
• They aren’t proactive and won’t ask the right questions
• Deliver design files that are hard for developers to implement
On the other hand, when working with me you can be assured that all of the issues above won’t happen.
My standards are extremely high and I take each project as if it’s a personal project.
My Competitive Advantage
You may realise that the faster you find a great freelance designer, the quicker you can make more money and have a less stressful business life. That’s why you’ll love working with me.
Many designers out there (especially the ones you’ll find on cheap design marketplaces) will just take orders, grab your content without asking too many questions, and won’t make an effort to understand your project and business goals. They will use copy+paste templates to deliver the order fast, just as if you were part of a fast-food chain.
Listen, I created templates myself, and sometimes they can be useful to save a bit of time on manual work, but they aren’t a magic one-size-fits-all solution. I understand that when it comes to client projects, each one must be tailor-made and focused on explicitly solving the client’s problems and achieve their goals and KPIs.
With every project, I work to create a unique and tailor-made solution that will resonate with your brand and achieve your short and long-term objectives. Let’s be frank; you wouldn’t have read to this page so far if you thought that Facebook built their billion dollar business just by using cheap $5 design templates.
If you want a great web app and an expert that genuinely cares about creating a tailor-made solution for you but don’t want to spend thousands and thousands of dollars in useless services, or if you desire to have a great user experience for your product, then you’ll love working with me.
My Web App UI Design Process
My approach focuses around an initial research phase where I’ll learn about your company, your customers, and your goals for the project. I’ll start by asking you several vital questions to be 100% sure we’ll be on the same page.
In turn, not asking these questions would create problems in communication later on down the road. Followed by that, I'll have a brainstorming session and will work to generate ideas on how to execute the project in the best possible way.
The next phase will be creating the actual structure based on the information and/or sketches that you’ve sent me. That’s when I will design a solid working structure with Sketch.
At that point, that’s where I’ll go into the design details and create a pixel-perfect web app screen that will match your company’s vision and goals.
I will focus on colours, typography, layout, and composition to bring your web app’s user experience to the next level.
With a long list of highly satisfied clients, don’t take my word for it, please check for yourself on what my current and past clients have had to say about working with me:
My Design Process
Each project is tailor-made around my client’s specific business needs. However, I can summarise my design process into five key steps:
At the start of every project, I always want to be sure that I fully understand the context in which I am operating. This step includes learning the ins and outs of your business; it’s target market, the short and long-term goals and much more. At this stage, I will go into the details and gather critical information that will allow us to succeed with the final design solution.
This is a crucial stage, and it’s all about idea generation to find an excellent solution for your project. It also includes discussing topics, seeing examples of success, visual inspirations and much more.
Design Ideas + Final Solution
This is where the technical design work starts. I usually lay a foundation by sketching concepts, creating initial wireframe structures and working on the visual design of the project. This stage may include several ideas, and I will present to the client the one (or ones) which I feel are winners.
Internal Review + Revisions
At this stage, we will review the final solution/s and move forward to the revision stage. In this stage, we will create new concepts from the winning idea, or refine and revisit a specific one. I will also give you access to my VIP Clients are to share with you tools and workflows that will make this stage extremely easy.
Once the project is finished, the long-term goal is to gather insightful feedback from the market and, whenever applicable, go back to the previous stage to refine the solution according to the needs of the market. An example of this would be A/B testing multiple homepage variations.
The Best Industry Standard Tools and Workflows
To make the process of collaborating and working remotely with me very easy and smooth, I use the very best industry-standard tools and workflows that will allow us to collaborate easily, no matter how big your team is or how many revisions or project variations we’ll need in the future.
My processes and workflows have been refined over the many years of working remotely with small and large teams from all sorts of backgrounds. When working with me, you’ll have access to all of these industry-standard tools and my premium workflows at no additional cost.
I work in a dedicated and comfortable studio area with a 27” iMac with 5K Retina screen (1TB SSD, 32 GB of RAM, 4 GHz Intel Core i7) and a second 27” 4K Samsung monitor. I also have one of the top podcast microphones (Rode NT-USB) and the 4K Logitech Brio, one of the best webcams available on the market, so that we can have crystal clear video and audio calls.
On top of that, I have a high-speed and reliable internet connection (the best one available in my area). Overall, I work in a $5000 workspace and I also have around $250/month in design and productivity subscriptions. When working with me you will be able to leverage all of this at no extra costs.
Examples of my Web App UI Designs:
Pierluigi has been the best designer I’ve ever worked with. He redesigned our website and worked on a variety of projects, from iOS apps to advertising designs and he consistently creates top-quality designs which are stunningly smart and beautiful in every detail. Plus, he is always on time and meet deadlines. He’s also an absolute pleasure to work with — creative, intelligent, and incredibly productive.
What I appreciated most about working with Pierluigi is that when he said he would get something done, he always did. I never had to ask him twice. He thinks about the user experience first, recommends options, when our team didn't even think of it, and was thorough, professional, and most important, quick! I hope we can work together on future projects. Great experience!
RONDA RINGO, DIRECTOR OF BUSINESS ANALYSIS & QUALITY CONTROL AT ARMEDIA
I really enjoyed working with Pierluigi. He did a phenomenal job on my web app and website. Opening emails from him felt like opening a Christmas gift as I was excited to see what each new screen would look like. He has a true eye for design. He was attentive and made changes quickly. Glad I found him and I plan on working with him again in the future.
Pierluigi is an extremely talented, world-class designer who came to me highly recommended. He is professional, reliable, organized, delivers on deadlines and consistently impresses with his design ability. I continue to work with Pierluigi and have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
Pierluigi is a reliable and committed designer who takes care to deliver his best to any project in a fast and efficient way. Our experience of working with him to provide designs for web, mobile web and iPhone has been simple, straightforward and professional at all times. He is highly adaptable to changing needs and timescales that is essential within any startup business where things can move very quickly. And on top of that, Pierluigi is a lovely person to work with and we value him greatly as a member of our team.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE INVESTMENT NEEDED FOR youR DESIGN services?
It depends on a couple of variables. Please contact me so we can hop on a Discover call where I can learn more about your specific needs and create a solution tailored for you and your business. That said, my prices are very reasonable and I work at a competitive hourly rate.
IN HOW MUCH TIME CAN YOU DELIVER PROJECTS?
Again, it depends on a few variables. I usually offer two pricing structures for different deadlines: Standard Priority and High Priority.
With High Priority, I will fully dedicate myself and schedule your project so that the delivery will be speedy (much faster than on Standard Priority), but it comes at a small hourly extra. With the High Priority option, I am available to work extra hours and weekends if needed.
HOW DO YOU MAKE SURE THAT MY DEVELOPERS WILL BE ABLE TO INTEGRATE YOUR DESIGNS EASILY?
I always focus on creating design deliverables that are extremely easy for developers to integrate, without the need of emailing back and forth and waste both of our time.
In order to do so, I developed robust workflows and processes that allow me to quickly sync with a developer (or even large teams of developers) of any background and provide them with all the assets they need in the latest industry-standard formats, as well as precise and minute CSS details that they can easily copy and paste into their code.
I use a combination of inVision Inspect and other tools that will require only 2 minutes from your developer to learn the basics, and we’ll then be able to get the designs coded professionally in no time.
In this video I explain developers how they can access the assets and exact specific visual details of my designs: pierluigigiglio.com/code
What Payment Options do you accept?
I accept Bank Transfers (also with TransferWise), Paypal and soon credit card payments. If you prefer other methods, please contact me and we can find a solution.
I am not in the same timezone, how do we handle this?
Over the many years I’ve been working as a remote freelancer, I’ve been working with clients from all over the world and never had a problem with timezones.
The reason for this is simple: I keep everything very organised.
When working with me, you’ll have access to premium tools that allow us to be 100% synched on the goals and status at all times and, whenever we need to hop on a video, audio or shared screen call we can easily arrange a time or you can book one directly from my Calendly scheduler, so that you can schedule time with me in your preferred timezone even without the need to book it manually with me earlier on.
On top of that, I have a high-speed internet connection (it’s the top tier in my area), so we can do video and shared screen calls that are crystal clear.
I also have a 4K Webcam and a premium podcast microphone, which those alone are $400 worth of equipment.
One note: my work schedule works particularly well with the timezones of American clients, hence why 70% of my client base is from the US.
