Project description:

Graphical user interfaces of today often misses a clear relationship to the 3D shape of the product and/or a connection to the companies’ aesthetics and trademark. The goal for this project was to come up with a GUI to a GPS-navigator for Volvo V50. The user interface had to look, sound and feel Volvo. After lots of sketching and the evaluation of two lo-fi prototypes, a Flash-prototype was developed with some of the typical GPS use-cases implemented.
