Advanta’s largest client
Advanta Group has been operating since 2004,
rendering a complete set of project management organization services; those include consulting, conducting workshops and trainings, developing and implementing corporate projects and project portfolio management systems.
We started with
joint work on the product image
Advanta Group reached out to us for a “cosmetic renovation”.
First, the client wanted to change the design of the project sheet,
to make it more up-to-date, convenient and nice to look at.

Together with the customer, we made arrangements to simulate the product. We also outlined the main roles and revealed consumer problems and needs. Then, we created a QFD matrix to find out
which features create valuefor which user groups.
We evaluated each feature in view of its importance to a certain group.
We ended up with a table that defined a list of high-priority product features for each user group.It came in handy for both parties: we relied on it in the development of navigation and visualization model, and the client used it in prioritizing development tasks.

We leveraged the achieved results in designing the new user interface. Our joint plans include a lot of interesting things on top of that, so we are bound to come back to this matrix.

We did our best to make the most important information readily accessible by the user.
The visualization model easily handles widely varying data combinations.
User interface color themes enable Advanta to adjust the looks to customer preferences.
We designed the homepage
and HTML-coded everything
We HTML-coded user interface and helped (and have been helping ever since) the programmers to integrate the new design.
This is what the project homepage and main menu look like.
We created a new logo
in the process
The creation of the new logo is worth being told in a separate story. We tried dozens of letterforms and typeface combinations and prepared 3 presentations of different logo versions for the client. Let’s not go into all the iterations, here’s the result:
Behind the scenes
to be continued...
The updated user interface of Advanta’s management system has already started to yield benefits for its owners. When we were still creating the new design, the Advanta Group was negotiating with a very large prospect who was looking into different management systems. They liked everything about Advanta’s offer except for the outdated user interface design. The new design presentation helped close the deal.
We are planning new joint projects, including a full re-design of the navigation system and a mobile-friendly version.
