Technology is lifesaving.
Shade developed the first laboratory-grade wearable device that measures ultraviolet radiation. We created a powerful UX for Shade’s mobile app, making critical data accessible for the people who need it most.
Can an app make data meaningful? The Shade sensor measures and tracks UV exposure. It’s a potentially life-changing tool for patients who are sensitive to UV radiation. But a tool is only as powerful as it is useable.
Shade wanted to build an app that would seamlessly connect the device to a smartphone, so that patients could easily access — and understand — their cumulative UV exposure at any point in the day. The app had to allow for information sharing among other patients and physicians. It was important to Shade that the app’s graphic elements and activities aligned with the established brand standards.
