As the landscape of real-time payments continues to experience rapid changes, Deloitte noticed that many banks didn’t have an accessible tool to help them understand how they can best adapt within a time of rapid transformation. Enter, Deloitte’s Faster Payments Sandbox: a testing environment where merchants and financial institutions can test their interfaces and find out what their users goals and best experience is in a safe environment.
With their idea in mind and a rough user-flow already in place, I was brought in to help finesse, refine and best represent their new technology. As a unique challenge when designing the dashboard, I would be considering an IT Solutions Management Conference audience as the first “user.” So, beyond thinking of this project as a learning tool for financial professionals, I also realized I would need to create an cohesive application that would be easy to follow along presenting in front of a crowd while explaining multiple different user scenarios/POVs at once. Creating a strict visual language and design system as well as planning for long-distance legibility guided many of my design choices.
