Hayden Industrial

Hayden Industrial has grown from providing high performance heat exchangers to managing a team of craftsmen and professionals across a dozen work sites. They hired ERA404 to perform strategy, design, and development on a system to manage the activity of their workcenters, employees, projects, and jobs.

The resulting application was designed for touch-screen interfaces with quick access to features, maximum usage of available real estate, and an intuitive, tailored experience for each level of their growing workforce. Advanced reporting options integrate with a number of Hayden’s pre-existing systems to perform seamless operations.

Koomol

Third Day approached ERA404 about designing the user interface and user experience for their conceptual application, Koomol.

Koomol (from ‘cumulus’) is a single portal that indexes files from all connected virtual storage (Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, etc.) and organizes them into one intuitively searchable interface. It solves the problem of trying to locate, organize, protect, and share personal documents that could be spread over a variety of internet services.

The challenge for the interface design was not only the organization of files (and groups of files, called ‘Koomolations’) across multiple cloud-storage services, but also how to indicate what was new, tagged, shared, and changed, each time the user logs in.

The resulting design grew to include two views (a list view, and a Pinboard-style grid view), with a notifications pane, an “explode” view to peek inside groups of files, and a host of searching, sorting, and filtering options to simplify asset maintenance.

Bulc Club

Bulc Club is a free social network with the mission of eradicating spam, forever. Each free member account includes unlimited forwarders and mail filtering based on Member Rating. In the first six months following launch, Bulc Club Members had already identified and rated over 35,000 addresses and domains, blocked countless spam emails, and prevented identity theft and computer viruses.

ERA404 concepted, designed, and developed the application, public site, and news/press site.

Matrix Destination

The slogan for Matrix Destination is “Imagine All You Can Be,” and the event producers at LDJ Productions began the design for the multi-segmented educational event by imagining everything. One segment was born after a visit to Africa and witnessing the awe-inspiring phenomenon called “murmuration,” where massive flocks of birds fill the skies in a seemingly choreographed dance.

Producer David Steinberg approached ERA404 to animate what would become three synchronized high-definition videos—spanning three giant screens. The animation was accompanied by live orchestral musicians and ran as the backdrop for  runway fashion show. The 5+ minute piece was rendered at C2IT in Kansas City and ultimately became one of the highlights of the 3-day event.

ERA404 contacted Pantone about an idea to promote the new Pantone Goe System on Facebook. Within a month, over 1,000 Facebook users subscribed to “Pantone Moods,” and hundreds of thousands of status updates were published with Pantone color chips.

Red White and Bubbly’s Adam Goldstein hired ERA404 to design the labels for three new wines: The Hearts of Brooklyn Series. ERA404 previously designed the packaging for Brooklyn Wine Company’s Feliz Label Collection and Sparkling White, Altamira’s Sangiovese, and for Pangea’s Sparkling Natural Spring Water.

Illustration for the new pieces was provided by Ryan Seslow. The designs have been applied to packaging, posters, and billboards around Brooklyn.
