The app connects to the Live Desk and synchronizes your profile with the cloud.

It helps you find the right sitting/standing heights, and remembers the settings next time you check in to any Live Desk.

To help you stay active throughout the day, the app recommends an activity goal for you based on your preferences.


The Process

Research Findings Summary.png

To come up with reasonable activity goals, we consulted health experts at Herman Miller about what to consider when making ergonomic recommendations.

Based on the research we created journey maps drafting the user’s experience with the desk both short-term (in a day) and long-term (over several months).

We also worked with the client to create the information architecture map, detailing the screens needed to be designed with regards to the rollout plan.

Wireframes and visual design.


After the first round of design, we conducted usability tests to see how well the app worked and gathered feedback. Then we made a few changes, including cutting down the amount of descriptive screens that no one paid attention to.
