Description

Nature.com supports a large amount of blogs within its network. Each one is on a different specialist subject, with it’s own identity, will fitting within the styling and structure of the nature.com site.

I was asked to design a generic template for this array of blogs which could be adapted simply using the css so that each blog could use it’s own signature colour and place a unique image in the header to identify it from the others.

In the day I had to work on this I produced a couple of variations. The result being that the final template is based on the second but pulling a couple of elements from the first.

Description

Having worked on a concept interface for Aston Martin previously at Splendid they then gave me the opportunity to produce the real thing.

Over a number of months I took charge of the production of the infotainment system, in tandem to a team who produced a home mangement system.

We worked closely with the client spending two days a week on site in Gaydon.They allowed us to become emersed in the Aston Martin world, interviewing all the stakeholders and wide range of staff.

We then developed our ideas through a series of testing phases, finally translating the UI in to a refined elegant visual interface which blended seamlessly in to the vehicle interior.
