This project is my masters thesis on Faculty of Art and Design on the Jan Evangelista Purkyne’s University in Ústí nad Labem . Its going to be an app for electronic evidence of income. This is the new law in Czech republic, that every income has to be send to ministry of finance and then printed to a receipt. It should prevent tax avoidance BUT It is also very dangerous because it can ruin small businesses, who can’t afford expansive solutions that are available for now.
I consider that as dystopian, also I don’t agree with the law. All I can do however, is mitigate the impact. So our solution offers web based app for every device that can be connected to bluetooth printer, its also going to be free for small businesses.
The user will be able to turn on the „plotter“ mode to print facts about the minister of finance, like when he joined communist party etc. It could also print last tweets of the business and so on.
I have designed visual identity and web based app for this project.
The system is officially called EET, that’s why I decided to style the ee letters to a shape of a receipt. Etos (Ethos) in ancient greek means character, which I think our minister is lacking 🙂 I have drawn whole logotype so its font is unique.
The screens should be reminiscence of the real world receipts and are based on Luke Wroblowski’s UX researches. I have coded the front end of the app, using HTML, CSS, jQuery and Bootstrap. App is also using AJAX to make the experience smooth. The main goal was to create smooth experience with transitions between each steps, while focusing on meaningful animations based on real world experience.
