Don Whitley Scientific

Interactive product guide

Don Whitley Scientific manufacture and distribute the MACS MG500 anaerobic workstation worldwide. To cope with this diverse market, Parker Design were tasked with producing an interactive product guide and operating instructions.

Our solution to this was an interactive application, built in Flash, containing a series of animated product demonstrations with accompanying voiceover and written instructions, with a menu based navigation system.

From the outset it was understood that the interactive product guide needed to be easy to follow. With this in mind, the animation style was kept simple but realistic, to ensure the clarity of the message through the animation alone. The instructions for the system are comprehensive so the animations were broken down into small, manageable sections that download as selected, for an improved service over slower internet connections.
