Hark Design worked with OPTALERT to create the design concept for their ‘Fatigue Risk Profiler’ graphic user interface.
The OPTALERT Fatigue Risk Profiler IRIS (Individual Risk Indicator System) was developed to allow users (eg. managers and control room operators) to readily identify and monitor the fatigue risk profile of many subjects (vehicle drivers using the OPTALERT Alertness Monitoring System) concurrently.
The user interface was designed to maximise ease of navigation and to provide a user-friendly experience, whilst displaying involved data outputs in an intuitive and understandable format.
A number of other information display styles, facilitating the effective communication of complex information, were designed as part of the OPTALERT Fatigue Risk Profiler reporting tool set.
Hark Design was engaged by The Footprint Company to create an identity for their business and online ecological footprint calculators.
Designed specifically for Australian property professionals, The Footprint Company online calculators allow users to quickly and effectively assess the sustainability performance of a building or fitout design, with the aim of improving the economic optimisation of environmental sustainability and enhancing the quality and effectiveness of Environmentally Sustainable Design investment decisions. The calculators provide users with detailed information in various report formats including ‘One Planet’ benchmark measurements.
The company logo developed by Hark Design was designed to represent the key idea behind The Footprint Company’s work – combining various sources of data to obtain a complete footprint measurement, within the goal of ‘One Planet’ sustainability.
The developed brand ‘look and feel’ was integrated into designs for the corporate website and footprint calculator user interface (with detailed specifications produced for handover to The Footprint Company site developer) and user guide publications.
Other marketing materials designed included business stationery, document templates, advertisement layout and infographic tools.
A set of screencast tutorials were also created to add to the learning resource tool suite for users.

A redesign of the existing company logo was completed, along with development of a new visual language, ensuring the nature and quality of the company’s products and services were reflected in its visual identity and resulting marketing material.

Deliverables included the overall creative concept including a graphic identity system created to work within existing NAB design guidelines, printed and electronic collateral, and an interactive toolkit containing a suite of templates and resources for practitioner use.
