mind map creating

We created an informational architecture to structure all the pages of the product and to create convenient navigation.

wireframes development

We created wireframes to be able to visualise the main functionality quicker and to conduct user tests for main flows.

web service design

When creating a design, it is essential to order and structure a massive amount of data so that users can quickly understand what is happening in the system.

Another challenge was to develop a design that will employ only two colours without losing convenience and text readability.

result

We helped to develop a product that will allow operators to manage and control the performance of wind turbines conveniently. While testing we noticed the needs of both the manager and the owner related to the monitoring of the whole process.
