Our HMI Design Masterclass


Design and innovation is no simple job. Instead of “1 + 1 = ?” we need to solve equations like “x + 2 = y?” We show you why it is important to assume the user view and design visualization solutions for the operators on the production floor. You will learn how to cluster functions according to frequency and relevance of interaction, and how to focus on key aspects – resulting in solutions that require half the effort you are used to and provide double the usability.


The visualization solution must fit the users. That is why we need to identify and integrate their targets, needs, and work contexts into our design. The first principle we need to follow is “Understand first, design next.” First the floor plan, then the furniture – how you build a house is also how you build your HMI design. Learn how iteration can help you reduce the risk of wasting effort and budget.


Half the job is done – now we start with the implementation. Learn why asking others and following familiar patterns and conventions will give you a head start on your project. We will show you why moving away from the screen and working with pen and paper will help you get better results faster. Using first layouts for typical use cases, we will demonstrate why great HMI design takes less creativity and more craft than you may think, and explain why literally anyone can learn the relevant rules and principles.


This lesson is all about getting and using feedback to make your HMI design great, and it explains why asking your users is the decisive factor determining which design works best. We will show you the design details that are critical for your visualization solution and how you can optimally use detail designs, interaction patterns, and wireframes. Plus, you will learn how to effectively use color, icons, and graphics to make your visualization more appealing to your users.
