PROJECT CHALLENGE
Develop the architecture of a desktop application based on the already specified functionality and architecture of a mobile application, as well as add new advanced functionality.

Create an up-to-date visual style for the application, also based on the style already developed earlier.
WHAT WAS DONE
The architecture of the mobile application for the desktop has been redesigned, adapted and improved.

The visual style has been updated with the study of all possible states and the UI Kit has been assembled, new controls for the desktop have been created.

Developed a dark theme for the application.
MY ROLE
User Experience & User Interface Designer.

— creation of a visual concept and development of all possible states;

 — development of UX scenarios based on business requirements;

 — detailed interactive prototyping;

 — development of icons;

 — development of illustrations.

ARCHITECTURE DEVELOPMENT
The architecture of the desktop application was developed on the basis of the existing architecture for a mobile application for iOS and Android platforms. However, it has been redesigned and optimized to reflect the addition of new functionality.

The type and style of global navigation was determined, as well as what information will be constantly displayed in the header and sprout on each page of the application; brought out important settings and functions.
DEVELOPMENT OF PROTOTYPES
In the first iteration, paper wireframes of the main 3 screens were developed. Since most of the scenarios have already been worked out on a mobile application, then work immediately began on creating a high degree of detail of a digital interactive prototype.

CREATING A MOODBOARD
To find the best visual solutions in the financial field of applications, the mood board was created. Many interesting solutions were found during a competitive analysis. However, the mood board allowed me to inspire and collect the visual options I liked, which later formed the basis of the UI concept of the main screens of the application.

From prototype to visual concept
The creation of the visual concept began with a detailed study of the three main screens of the application. The basis of the application style was developed already at the stage of mobile application design.
This style has been slightly changed and updated for the desktop: the main accent color has been changed, the color palette of illustrations has changed slightly — gradients have appeared.
Designing tables and filtering
As part of the project, a number of tables were designed with a different set of filters and search. The tables were designed with responsiveness in mind.
