Understanding User Perspectives and Requirements
FDrawing from its extensive experience in the veterinary industry and deep expertise in effective user interface design, Nectar first conducted contextual research by visiting a horse stable to speak with users in the equine/large animal environment. The firm combined these insights with its knowledge of how veterinary offices operate, and incorporated these findings in designing the overall look and feel of the interface screen.
This involved creating backgrounds, frames, windows, the color palette, and icons that are characterized by a clean, modern look and feel—conveying ease-of-use, power, and quality—and that are aesthetically suitable for a medical application. Nectar also created buttons to support and optimize touch-screen operation on digital tablets, and took steps to integrate the interface’s look in feel with Sound-Eklin branding conventions.
