HP DesignJet

Large & medium format printer user interface

The HP DesignJet are a series of world class printers used by professionals and businesses in architecture, engineering, and design sectors. These printers offer precision and reliability, delivering large-format prints with exceptional detail and color accuracy. Design studios, construction firms, and reprographic departments choose this machine because of the streamlined workflows and enhance productivity relying on the consistent performance and superior quality.

I collaborated on the user interface, focusing on interaction design for specific user workflows and on UI patterns definition part of the design system.



Users and environment

These printers are used in dynamic and diverse professional settings like architectural firms, engineering offices, construction sites, advertising agencies, graphic design studios, educational institutions and corporate environments. The typology of users varies widely, encompassing architects, engineers, graphic designers, project managers, educators, and business professionals.

Regardless of the specific industry or profession, the users of this printer share a common need for the best quality and reliable printing solutions that can handle the demands of their professional workflows.

Specialized UI

One design system for multiple machines

My role within the design team was to actively contribute to the maintenance and enhancement of the design system used across a the diverse range of HP printers. Our primary goal was to continuously evolve the solutions provided to users, thereby enhancing their experience.

Operating within a complex interface that must cater to a wide variety of functionalities offered by the entire family of printers, my focus predominantly revolved around pattern design and lead interaction design on specific workflows by working in close collaboration with software and hardware development teams to ensure seamless integration and optimal user interaction.

User Interaction optimization

Improvements to the workflow logic

By studying user behaviors and needs based on user research, I contributed to the continuous effort on improving the user experience by identifying pain points and inefficiencies in the workflows.

Our main goal was to deliver intuitive navigation structures, clear visual hierarchies, and streamlined task flows to simplify complex operations and reduce cognitive load. Ultimately, our team strived to create a cohesive and user-centric UI to help users accomplish their printing tasks efficiently, enhancing their overall productivity and satisfaction.

UI Patterns

Maintenance of the user interface consistency

As a member of the distributed design team and lead interaction pattern designer of the LFP team, my responsibilities included creating and enhancing UI patterns for the design system, ensuring consistency, usability, and efficiency across the interface.

Collaborating closely with other design stakeholders and development teams, we iterated and refined these patterns to serve as the building blocks for a cohesive and intuitive printer UI. This collaborative effort promoted efficiency in both development and user interaction, ultimately enhancing the overall user experience.
