The task was to make a UI design for yet another one transfer file service, which was based on a well known practice of other, already successful services. Client wanted to keep the business logic, but to have a slightly different touch and feel.

First solution was built around idea of progress "bar" info. We introduced colorful smiles and tried to design around them a whole interface. Client actually liked the concept but raised a concern about user friendliness of smiles, especially of a "annoyed" red one with a flat mouth expression. Agreeing that concept needed further fine tuning in a way to be found a proper balance, but since was no guarantee of successful outcome in a tight time frame, we put it aside for a while and turned to a different approach.

Second solution was based on a idea of a box, presented in a isometric projection. Having clean and geometrical approach, decision was to build an minimalist and suggestive interface, based on a polygonal shapes, circles and lines. Very reduced color palette served to promote an idea.

Since client loved the pale blue, we kept it, added a dark gray instead of black and changed UI elements to be more mainstream. Another requirement was altering the logo in a way to have more connection to the "cloud"...
