Having a new icon set for their machinery’s UI, Kitamura then shifted their focus to their need for a visual and UX design for their Tool Offset screen. ArtVersion set to work on a UI/UX strategy and design with specific attention to the information architecture in order to create optimized user pathways and journeys throughout the control panel interface.

Marketing & Promotional Materials

To begin the project, ArtVersion started be designing a custom UI icon set for Kitamura’s machinery, then proceeded to strategize designs for print and digital assets for their ultra-high precision vertical machining center, the Mycenter Super Micron. Dealing with highly technical and specific subject matter, the ArtVersion team conducted in-depth product research and competitive analysis to develop the content strategy, layout, and design for a brochure that Kitamura could distribute for marketing and promotional purposes.
