UX / UI
As the Pratus platform is the core of Disaster Tech, its new visual identity needed to be applied to the UI as well. During a brief audit of their existing user interface, several issues occurred that needed to be resolved in line with the new design. Therefore, we made improvements to the usability of the platform, making it more intuitive and practical for its users. Above all, we worked on the dashboard, the map view, and the organizational view. We also adapted the general layout, reorganizing the navbar and sidebar to provide an optimal user experience. By redefining and designing elements like bars, buttons, and tables, we reached a cohesive, improved user experience across the whole Pratus platform. The next step was to incorporate the new brand aesthetic into the platform. For the sidebar, we designed icons that represent different applications within the digital product, such as alerts or the map view. Colors play an important role in risk management; the color palette used was carefully chosen to be distinct enough to summarize visually important elements but calm enough to offer a smooth user experience. These colors are represented in elements such as risk and alert status, projects, and in the map view, where they immediately give an overview of incidents. Not only colors are used to organize and categorize different types of incidents on the platform, but we also created shapes that differentiate forms of disasters such as earthquakes or fires.
