My Finance Centre

Website and User Interface design

Overview

Lifetime Financial Management were already developing the back end of MFC when they approached Thin Martian to help with the User Interface and visual design of the front end. Their aim was to create a product that enabled Financial Advisors to work with their clients via a web interface – the elevator pitch for which might be something like ‘the Facebook of Financial Management’.

The centre piece of the website is the ‘Balance Sheet’ — a visual representation of the user’s current finacial position and net worth in the form of a dynamic infographic. The user can test ‘what if’ scenarios by taking over this snapshot with a set of sliders to change the relative values of each item.

Working closely with John King (a Thin Martian associate coder), I focussed on the UI and design while he rendered the HTML prototype which was passed over to Lifetime for integration with their system.
