Project: user interface & graphics
Description / constraints: design the software interface and graphics for a Mondex smartcard reader; keeping the window small, & being as consistent as possible with the way the hardware card readers work
Design approach: build on icons & buttons from Mondex's physical smart-card reader (with which users would be familiar)

Other info: I designed a small window, including buttons based on the hardware buttons and a 3-line display area for the (sometimes cryptic) little messages that the device sent. I expanded on the existing icons for both the buttons and the display, and mapped out how all the possible operations might be implemented in a software environment. These are a few of the screens.
