Services | Maria Burke


Practical, outcome-driven design strategy & product design

I’ve spent a decade designing and delivering successful SaaS products for companies like IBM and Procore. Now, I help product and design leaders do the same for their teams. My focus is on helping your team be more productive and do more effective work.

I guide your team to define the problem, prioritize solutions, and create an effective plan for delivering innovative products. After defining the design strategy, I can also stay on to help with UX design for part or all of the project.
