Magellanโ€™s goals for the redesign of their MobileMapper interface ere to: Anticipate the OS evolution Make the log process easier than the previous version which was error prone. Promote their brand

At the start of the project, I analyzed the pre-existing user interface, which revealed inconsistencies in action flows, contradicting elements were indeed occupying the same real estate on the screen & the navigation was difficult.

To simplify the navigation, I opted to integrate breadcrumbs to the new user interface and develop graphical icons that would help materialize the task progress.
