Home Automation

Touch interface for high-end residential control system. At the time, home automation systems were notoriously difficult to use. Our goal was to create a next-generation interface that was both attractive and easy to use. The finished system ran on Crestron stack, and was controlled from iOS apps. I particularly enjoyed creating the skeumorphic (pre-iOS 7) icons.

The interface was subsequently packaged as an end-to-end control solution for condos, under the name New Space Core. I rebranded the company (logo, website, etc) then created the Core marketing campaign, from copy to collateral design.
