I was tasked with updating branding for Acoura’s client applications after their takeover by Lloyds Register. Working closely with the innovation director and development lead I spent a couple of months designing new interfaces adhering to the parent companies brand guidelines and coding the new front-end across all applications.
The business had recently merged with Lloyds Register, so I was required to adhere to the parent companies brand guidelines. The lead developer also made it clear to me that their customers liked the card based design for the dashboard, so I was to include that in my new designs.
I felt that a sidebar navigation would be most suitable for this dashboard as the system had a large amount of potential navigation links which would show on certain pages. Designing them vertically allowed the content box to scroll when required.
Once wireframing was completed and signed off, I went forward and applied the Lloyds Register branding to the project. I was also asked to provide a 'dark' verison of the design for a secondary dashboard used from development purposes.
