We showed 31 different washing process with real texture, which enabled users to choose the right process easily and directly. We made great efforts on adjusting colors, textures and angles to make them appear in perfect harmony.
We laid emphasis on readability when adding information on pictures. We sorted information by using different color and size on primary, secondary and operable information. We made the interface simple and easy to use by concerning each detail.
Waiting is always annoying while washing. We challenge to turn it into a positive feeling. We simulated water flow to make washing experience more lively. By directly showing remaining time and washing process, we enabled our users to control washing condition even in distance.
What are users expecting on washing machine screen? To answer the key question, we designed 2 interface prototypes with different visual style and animation and presented them on iPad. By observing the behaviour of users and interviewing their preference, we sorted their feedback, redefined the concept and improved the final design.
