About Us

Informing Designs was established in 1999 as a FileMaker consulting practice based in Austin, Texas.

Lisette Wilson, Principal Consultant, FileMaker Certified Developer.

Lisette has over 15 years experience with FileMaker. Prior to FileMaker development, Lisette provided technical services at Apple Computer, worked in numerous departments of a federal agency and developed a database for a natural foods broker. Recent FileMaker projects range from construction to wastewater transport to sales of a variety of products and services. She can connect your FileMaker database to a distributed workforce on iOS with FileMaker Go, or to your web page with PHP and custom web publishing. A FileMaker Certified Developer in versions 9-14, Lisette is a graduate of the University of Texas and especially enjoys her work with The University of Texas Press and McDonald Observatory.  One of the coordinators of the Austin FileMaker Pro User Group, she is always looking for FileMaker enthusiasts wanting to share their knowledge with the group, as she suspects they get tired of hearing her talk.

George Perry, Senior Consultant

George has over 20 years experience with FileMaker. His most recent work was with the University of Texas Center for STEM Education where he served as the administrator and senior developer for a statewide science and math education program involving 60 projects, all using a FileMaker system he developed. Before this he was involved in a wide variety of FileMaker development projects including those for business, non-profits and government organizations. For several years he was a certified FileMaker trainer and taught many classes from introduction to advanced levels. His primary philosophy with clients is that development works best when regular and clear communication about work in progress is a high priority for all involved.
