[Design Project] FileNest – A Safe Place to Store Your Files Online
It’s always a pleasure to work on useful for people projects, on tools and services that facilitate the routine things we do and improve our life in some point. Few weeks ago we were honored to start working on logo development for a new file storage service – FileNest. This service created by US company STM Support is aimed to provide users with a secure place online where they may store their files and share those with others. The project included 2 parts: logo design and UI customization in colors of the logo.
FileNest Logo Development
Initial concepts of the logo were based on idea “as safe as birds nest” and our designer found allegory in egg being a file and nest – secure file storage service. Preference in color scheme was given to quiet colors that could be associated with safety. Blue colors looked too simple, so the next revision was done in silver/orange variation. And upon next review, the final logo concept became blue and orange.
We’ve also assisted the client in creating logos and icons in PSD, AI, ICO and ICNS formats, so the new logo could be now added as a desktop icon or even iPhone application.
FileNest UI Customization
Once logo and color scheme were approved, we started working on UI design for the new service. We had to suggest login screen background, design of email notifications and pop-up messages that will appear through the system, create design of user interface. Our team stick to the initial concept of “safe” environment and followed blue/orange color scheme. The preference was given to the clean and simple login background with the logo in left bottom corner.
