Fusio designed and developed the new website and mobile app for Met Éireann. At one point in the project the Product Owners at Met requested that we as a company have two alternative designs to an already existing design completed by our Senior Creative Director. We also had only a day, if even, to work on and submit the designs! Out of all three my design was chosen.
The original design had a couple of issues I identified – it wasn’t always clear that the subtitle e.g. Dublin 7 Day Outlook, and the graphs underneath were in the same section and the title also could be mistaken for a clickable button. I decided to add small vertical border lines underneath and to both sides of a horizontal line to envelope the content, make it easier for the user to concentrate their eye on each section and make it look less like a button / call-to-action.
There was no separation between icons groupings, for example, under the 7 day forecast section so all the groupings blended together and it was potentially overwhelming for the user to not have separation here. I added borders to stack the content almost like cards and let the user better focus in on the relevant days and info they wanted to look at.
