UI/UX Design Lead - This was a ground-up redesign of a java based enterprise rich internet application that despite having a loyal customer base, was dated and cumbersome to use. The project also included the design of a style guide.
The application's purpose is to create complex collaborative documents that can be directly outputted as print-ready pdf.
The design brief was to start from scratch, analysing user data supplied by the customer team, to create an entirely new user experience and interface, whilst retaining existing features that were valued and integral to the product.
This project is without doubt the most complex in the Lightpetal portfolio. Multiple user journeys from virtually any point are the norm, coupled with a feature-rich environment that is closer to a desktop application than the average web app.
Both the interface and the look & feel are kept intentionally minimal, to keep the document that's being worked on as the focus. The control surfaces are semi-skewmorphic with just enough bevel to feel clickable. The more recent Android Material Design adopts a similar approach.
