User interface design for automated testing platform

Keywords: UI & UX Design, HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap, Ember.js, Node.js

Bugbuster was a startup spin-off from EPFL, Switzerland. They delivered an automated testing platform as a service, consisting in a web UI powered by an API connecting a webkit-based robot with some level of AI built in.


I was hired on this project to revamp the user interfaces of their first prototype and give them a new, fresh design from scratch. The goal was to improve its usability and the general user experience when onboarding the application and learning to use the platform.

Based on state-of-the-art user experience trends at the time, I gradually designed and built a new set of screens that made navigation much more natural, transparent and easy to use for our customers.

By following best-practice design patterns and an iterative approach, I produced a new visual identity for this software-as-a-service platform, now decommissioned after being acquired by AppDynamics.

My role also involved implementing these new designs with Ember.js, HTML5 and CSS3.
