This project management system is meant to be an all in one solution for small to medium sized design and development studios to organize their team and projects all in one place. Users can create new projects, update the status of a project, comment, and add attachments. Managers and HR can manage employee information as well as sick days and vacation.
We began the project with branding; branded elements must be clear and easy to replace without conflicting with the rest of the UI. We wanted businesses to be able to put in their brand colours wherever the default brand red is used. This meant creating an otherwise minimal and neutral design to allow for this amount of customization.
Creating an all in one system with consistent UI and UX elements meant to be used for very different functions (i.e. HR vs. design teams) was something we struggled with throughout the project. Doing constant internal user testing within the company really helped us work out these details on the fly.
