Partnered with Boccia England, a national governing body, to create a modern scorekeeping solution.
I designed an iPad app that connected to a big screen. The scoreboard was used at local, national and international competitions as well as the National Paralympic Day in London.
National Paralympic Day
Used by officials with a range of technology experience and physical abilities.
- Volunteers may not have ever used an iPad before.
- Skeuomorphism was used to make the experience more familiar to a traditional physical scoreboard.
- During user research, I observed indivdiuals having difficulty swiping the screen to scroll.
- Added tapable scroll buttons.
Match results were shown on a large screen for players and spectators.
- Information on the screen needed to be read from at least 10 meters away.
- Included additional graphical cues to support the contrast and typography.
- the position of the highlighted circle within a set of ends indicates the end being played, even if the number cannot be read
- a time-remaining ring provided a bold visual indicator of timing, which can be seen from a greater distance than the numerical display
- different audio alerts notified officials and players when time-remaining reaches key points.
