App UI Design

We worked with Glen Dimplex to design a visual identity and user interface for a new app that controls smart home heating technology.

With a broad portfolio of heating products and partners around the world, we’re working with Glen Dimplex on a new generation of apps that bring consistency and compatibility across their range.

For this project, our brief was to develop a brand and enhanced user interface for a heating app that controls products from Glen Dimplex and their partners in one simple view.

Our first step was to design the visual identity, complete with app icon design. We needed to create a visual language that would incorporate a colour palette that would be harmonious both with the Glen Dimplex brand and those of their partners.

For the UI design, we analysed user feedback collected from a legacy app to identify user needs as well as pitfalls in the user experience. Armed with these insights, we were able to enhance the user flows, working together with the IoT team at Glen Dimplex to make sure our front-end changes would be achievable with their existing database structure. We also made sure our designs complied with AA accessibility and readability standards to smooth the way for a global release.
