Take a Peek at This!
Back in February this year (2008) odd: was commissioned to produce the UI (user interface) design for an unnamed mobile email device. Well, the unnamed device is called Peek, and is now on sale in the US!
The Peek device brings mobile email to the masses. The unit is thin and lightweight, comes with a full qwerty keyboard to make typing super easy and is available in three colours. Unfortunately it’s only available in the US.
Below you can view the initial concept designs we supplied which won the pitch.
As is always the case the designs were reigned in during the course of the project to meet with developing client specifications. As can be seen in the final product, the resulting screen layout has a more conventional feel.
Liaising with the company, based in San Francisco, and the software development team in China was a challenge, but the eight week project was completed on time and within budget.
This was a great project to be involved, the guys at Peek were a breeze to work with and we wish them well with the product.
