Project Brief: 'Crapware'

Our team was provided a video baby monitor with the simple goal of transforming its poor user experience into an exceptional one.

Strategy

_Reduce the learning curve.

The product and its features are simple, so this should be reflected in its design.

_Create a product that feels up-to-date.

Today's consumers are used to high quality experiences, and expect nothing less. The product's experience should justify its cost and be comparable with other devices.

 

Concept

Information + Action = Peace-of-Mind

The primary goal for baby monitors is to provide peace-of-mind to child guardians. Information and action panes clearly inform the user, and data-tracking capabilities make it easy to see deviations from normal activity .
