What did we do?
strategy / user experience design / visual design
When On-hertz came to us, we immediately knew this would be one of the most fascinating projects of the year. On-Hertz created a prototype of what is now called Lumo. Lumo is a complete radio station in your backpack, allowing radio presenters to run an entire show from any touch-enabled laptop or iPad.
On-Hertz asked for our help to optimise the UX (User Experience) and UI (User Interface). Not the easiest of tasks considering any mistake made because of the interface could lead to hundreds of thousands of people hearing it in on their favorite radio show.
