“Control Mi” is about music passion, a Raspberry Pi and feeling in control of a massive music library.
My client programmed a mini-computer called Raspberry Pi to control his powerful amplifier, TV, sound speakers and Hard-Drives with tens of thousands of songs. The good news is that he programmed his Raspberry Pi to fit his needs to play flawless music. The bad news, it takes him too long to type and find songs. What happened next?
Research and Design Guide Lines
To start this process I went through John Maeda's Law of Simplicity and decided to work with:
Reduce — How simple and complex does it have to be? Time — Saving time feels like simplicity. TheOne — Subtract the obvious and add what is meaningful.
Having this in mind helped me to create the Mood Board, as you can see above. I created a Colour Palette and also a gradient following the colours picked on the mood board so I could have a better understanding of the colours and feelings around my design.
