Designing UX for wearables

Bus O'Clock for Apple Watch / Sennep, 2015

Bus O’Clock for Apple Watch / Sennep, 2015

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, Apple have now released WatchKit so that developers can begin building apps for the Apple Watch, due to be released next spring. Here at Sennep we’ve already begun work on adapting our popular iOS app Bus O’Clock for the wrist, and so far it’s proving an interesting challenge! It’s the first time I’ve ever had to design something for such a ridiculously small area – it really forces you consider what information is crucial to the user, and when they should see it. In some ways it’s enjoyable being so ruthless. Hopefully the app should be fun to use and really useful… we’re looking forward to seeing it take shape next year!

I’m pleased to say the new website for Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is now live. This was a massive job that I worked on at Sennep for a little over a year, completely overhauling the site from the ground up.

The practice has been going since the 70s and has amassed an astonishing portfolio of work. Pictured above are:

LSO Play / Sennep, 2013

Today I’m very happy to announce that LSO Play has officially launched. It’s a project that I’ve been working on at Sennep for the past year, and we’re all immensely proud of it. Go and check it out!

The site allows you to watch & interact with HD footage of the orchestra performing Ravel’s Bolero. It’s an immersive experience, allowing you roam around the orchestra by changing your camera feeds, learning about how the players perform, and understanding the nuances of conducting. You can also explore a map of the orchestra, learn about the instruments, read performer bios, and watch masterclass videos.

It has to be said that LSO were an absolute dream client to work with. They came to us with a pretty open brief and were completely enthusiastic about everything we came up with. This was a lot of fun to work on!

I’m really pleased with this project, I think it looks awesome and is really fun to play with. I hope you enjoy it too!

In the future LSO will be uploading more videos of different performances, and maybe one day the experience will be translated to an iOS app or similar. In the meantime, I think this project really proves that Flash on the desktop is not dead!
