Titian’s Mosaic software is a streamline sample management workflow application, that is right at home in modern cutting edge laboratory environments, however it’s look and feel didn’t reflect this and customers were keen to see the application updated. Titian asked Rouge to update the visual styling to present a more modern impression and an interface that was simple and easy to use.
To get a true understanding of how Titian’s customers used their Mosaic application, Rouge were given an in depth tour of the software and took this knowledge back to the studio.
Understanding the typical user and their environment were important factors when considering elements like the colour scheme used. For example it isn’t uncommon for the laboratory assistants to use uncalibrated monitors with a low resolution, and therefore it was important to consider this when choosing subtle shades of grey.
Working with the predetermined layout of the software, Rouge presented Titian with three concepts for consideration, eventually moving forward with fresh and light option that uses a light teal for highlight and accent elements.
Along with the restyling of the software, Rouge were also asked to produce a new icon pack of over 180 icons. Simplicity and clarity were important as the icons had to work at a small size and be easily transferable for light and dark backgrounds.
The result is a timeless but modern looking piece of software interface that has helped improve the experience of existing users and become a key selling point for new clients.
