The Life-FI interface design won Silver for UX Design in the Brisbane Advertising and Design awards, a Green Good Design award in the social impact category, as well as a Webby Honoree and finalist in the AGDA awards.
The Life-Fi portal is accessed by connecting to the free beach wifi. On connecting, Life-Fi automatically detects the phone language settings and confirms that is the language desired to continue in. Once selected, users can see important beach safety messages in their own language and learn more about keeping safe at the beach. The main home screen has multiple states depending on the status of the beach, for example when the beach is open, closed or when there are RIPS flowing in specific directions. When designing for this home screen it was important to consider visuals which displayed open, caution and closed messages clearly and visually outside of using language and text by using illustrations. The 4 key messages are always kept above the fold on phones so they are clear and accessible at all times.
I also designed the informational website for the product, informing the public about how it works and the benefits of the technology.
