Skytap

With Skytap I had the opportuity to do a redesign of their existing content. This includes graphics and overall aesthetics. The company creates cloud-based product testing environments that are customizable in terms of computing specs. These environments are connected and peer reviewed with various methodologies.

The design challenge for me was to digest all the language/information, and translate that into a central idea.

Creating a Visual System
In order to best articulate the complexity of their offering, I found it best to distill the graphics down to a basic language. It's represented by a white circle for a person, and a blue circle for an environment.

Another challenge was to create fun. With that fun comes engagement and visual interest, without it a potentially dry subject gets drabbed down.

Here's a before and after:

Incorporating fun and consistency in some more graphics samples:

A website aesthitic was made to match that planetary/cloud-floating/futuristic feeling.
