Branding and UI design for mobile security app
GuardianMPS provides technology and services to help protect workforces in healthcare, education and logistics from risks of attack and injury as they work and travel.
Having previously worked with their leadership team on other projects, we were delighted by the opportunity to help develop and launch their newest security product, a controller app to accompany an alarm dongle.
The design objective was to develop an individual brand identity, clearly part of the GuardianMPS family, for the new app. The interface needed to be modern and intuitive to present a reliable, trustworthy and secure image.
The user of the app will be busy carrying out their job function, most likely with their device in a pocket or purse all day long. So it was imperative the controller app provides clear notifications and reports in a user friendly, simple and intuitive fashion.
Retaining elements of the existing GuardianMPS identity provides consistency with the parent brand and helps to establish a brand family. We used the same typography, kept the hexagon which became the centre of the map-marker inspired graphic, and freshened up the colour pallet to a lighter and brighter orange gradient.
The interface design utilises islands to contain data and a simple, flat style with lots of space helps provide a clean and contemporary feel.
- Name development
- Logo design
- UI design
- Asset production / developer handover.
We always start an interface design project by collating assets and focusing on the small interactive elements like buttons and tools. This ensures that we’re really focused on how the tool will be utilised in the real world . This way we create a button that is easy to use, rather than a button which fits a space in a layout.
We’re really happy with the simplicity and vibrant modern feel.
