In this project, we relook at the Work Order screen in the navigation and reassess it's UI.
The problems we are solving for are: 1. Make it easier to scan the most important information (Status, Work Order title and the Field name are of the top importance.) 2. Remove Workability (red, green and yellow bars with explanation of wether we asses that this field is good, cautionary or not workable) because users do not trust it and never look at it and do not use it. 3. Include equipment type for harvesting Work Orders. 4. Include rainfall information in inches so that user can asses themselves if a field is workable or not. 5. Create a systematic and flexible approach that can be utilized for the Task screen as well.

What's Your Sign?
What’s Your Sign? is an astrology site that includes all twelve astrological signs of the western horoscope. Astrology uses the movement of celestial bodies such as the moon, earth and sun as the foundation of its information. Therefore, I used a circular grid system to format the different astrological signs while utilizing color to differentiate the signs. I designed with the typeface Univers because the simplicity and geometric design of Univers gave the complex system clarity and a modern feel for this completely typographic brand.
Well Bean informs people about making healthier coffee choices through the use of information graphics. The main inspiration for this execution style came from coffee shops’ hand rendered menus. A variety of brown and neutral colors were brought in to reinforce the link between the information and coffee. Kefa is a primary typeface used because the organic strokes and edges support the hand rendered style, whereas Candara, the secondary typeface used, contrasted nicely with it.
I Want You
Psychedelic typography and the Uncle Sam icon were combined to engage viewers between the ages of 18 and 40 to vote. The style intrigues the viewer to investigate further into the information that differentiates it from other conventional styles. A vibrant blue and red were chosen to catch the eye of the viewer and are representative of American culture. Experiments with different words and materials were done first to explore different options to engage the viewers.

In order to appeal to a wide range of audiences, the Depot’s brand combines many of the traits from the location’s equity including history, education and progress. The brand’s core values represent the idea of moving through history for a brighter future. Additionally, the brand combines modern and traditional aesthetics to reflect the educational aspects of the museum, pairing a clean and modern pictorial mark with a more traditional typeface, Rockwell. The brand also utilizes color for a more dynamic and playful brand system with colors that represent education and fun.
Objective Brewery is designed for the bold and daring beer drinker looking for a challenge. Objective gives the audience a set of different directions for every beer using drinking terminology as a reference. Hand rendered typography with harsh angles inside bold and geometric graphic shapes are intended to create a serious tone that plays into the irony of Objective’s brand strategy. This style is chosen to differentiate itself from other craft brewery graphics. Multiple colors are brought in to distinguish different types of beers.
‘Merica is an environmentally conscious sunglass brand that invests in the packaging case for sunglasses so that you do not have to. ‘Merica’s target audience group is sixteen to thirty year-old hipsters.

The typeface, Mission Script, was used to further complement the simplified style and culture of the brand.
