Introduction

The project is to redesign the Zen ergonomic desktop software, which helps employees improve their posture at work with exercises and reminders. The new design aims to provide a more personalized user experience by using Spectrum, Adobe's design system.

Background

● The existing product design can be improved with a more cohesive design system, strategic data visualization components, and enhanced features for optimized and custom care.

● The bar charts in the existing design may not be the most effective way to display posture data.

● Positional heat maps are a better choice for showing the distribution of leaning behavior across a two-dimensional space.

● Donut charts are most ideal for comparing proportions of a whole.

● A counter would be a more appropriate element design for users to get a quick glance at their progress.

Job to be Done

● Make improving daily posture health an easy experience with personalized dashboard features.

Functional Criteria

● Integrate posture health exercises and consultations seamlessly into the work day.

Emotional Criteria (Personal)

● Improve posture health for a more productive work experience.

Emotional Criteria (Social)

● Show up for teammates with increased energy and improved presence during meetings.

Current State

● Branded desktop app with limited personalization features.

Future State

● Cohesive desktop app design with new features for custom posture care and improvement.

Design Review

● Positional heat maps are a better choice for showing the distribution of leaning behavior across a two-dimensional space.

● Donut charts are most ideal for comparing proportions of a whole.

● A counter would be a more appropriate element design for users to get a quick glance at their progress.

● The new Posture Point Adjuster allows users to indicate areas they're feeling pain or pleasure.

● Users can report posture points of pleasure to provide well-rounded insight into their state of posture health.

Conclusion

The redesign aims to provide a more personalized user experience by using Spectrum, Adobe's design system, and new features for custom posture care and improvement. The new design will improve the existing product design with a more cohesive design system, strategic data visualization components, and enhanced features for optimized and custom care. The redesign will also provide users with a better way to visualize their posture data and progress, and new features to provide well-rounded insight into their state of posture health.
