The main objectives with our job were to make User Experience more accessible and fun, but also to emphasis the brand.
We've been asked to create 3 different prototype-demos to explore different directions. So we did. Unfortunately we are not allowed to present them here, but the interesting part of it was, that since it's made on top of Android OS, which by default has very little limitations, we were to explore whole range of gestures, including full-screen swipes, to e.g. initiate Sales.
Although Polskie ePłatności already has their infrastructure of apps for their customers, there's been some room for Information Architecture rearrangements.
Below are the first 3 levels of the app's Menu for a logged-in user presented.
What can really put things apart with User Experience is the animation. Although its obvious power, UX can easily be overwhelmed with too many parts moving too dynamically on the screen.
With Polskie ePłatności we've worked out something that makes the UI come alive (literally) but at the same time does not overwhelm (yep, feel free to correct us if you feel we're wrong).
The main unified element that breathes life and solidifies the brand, was this most-dominant animation which consists of 3 circles placed on red background, which are scaling up in size 10% for 1.6s and then they scale back down. -The animation is infinitely looped, which creates this impression of breathing.
Moreover, it appears not only in full-screen mode on the idle screen, but also is displayed on every other screen, where command-box appears. The command-box masks off the animation to its boundaries.
Apart from the breathing animation we have designed a bunch of other stylish, yet non-intrusive animated icons to enrich the understandability and overall experience. Below are couple examples:
