A spin-off from another project, this was a self-initiated exercise to design a new interface and icon set for ownCloud—open-source file hosting software with functionality similar to Dropbox or Google Drive—which is a really great platform with a bloated, cluttered interface.

  • I did:

  • Interaction design

  • User research

  • Icons


The main goal of this project was to strip the interface down to its core functionality and make that the focus of the layout. This lead to a streamlined interface where, for example, the roles of the breadcrumbs and the file tree were combined into a single element in the layout.
