Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We sell software for data analysis and presentation. Our customers are mainly market research companies who conduct surveys and use our software to analyze the survey data.
We are expanding our products to have more visual tools - something like PowerPoint but with added number crunching and code behind the scenes.
We are currently focused on building dashboards - displaying business intelligence charts in an informative and appealing way.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We have a created a dashboard here: https://app.displayr.com/Dashboard?…a9fa162a8b
It is one page and shows the location of currently airborne military aircraft updated in real-time.
The task is to make this more exciting and less plain. This will mainly involve adding a background (1024 x 700 pixels) and potentially changing some of the colours and layout.
However since it is embedded in our software there are a number of constraints and considerations to be aware of:
- The map is opaque and occupies the centre of the screen. The area of the map changes slightly as the user changes the region.
- The colours of the countries and ocean (currently blue and grey) can be changed.
- The locations and fonts of the title, region control and "Locations" legend can be changed.
- The location of the "Number of aircraft" scale cannot be changed.
We do not want to be too prescriptive but some themes to consider are flying, sky, aircraft, fighter jets ... but be aware that the map will always occupy the centre of the area.
Note that you will provide a background image, a mock-up of the overall screen and description of any other changes to colours or fonts, then we will make the changes to the software.
