User interface design process


We can change the design of a user-interface to align it with University of Otago colours and branding.

How much can be changed, and in what way, will be dictated by the application itself.


This can vary depending on your requirements.


Request for development

Email with your requirements so we can gain a high-level understanding of your request.

Please be clear as to what you need from us:

  • Screenshot representation and recommendation
  • CSS/html and digital assests
  • Full implementation of the skin/theme

Project planning

We assess the scope of the project to assign resources, and schedule the work.

Provide us with information

We will need:

  • Access information (if applicable)
  • Information on what can and can’t be changed on the interface
  • Details on how you want it to look


The Web team will develop a design based on your requirements.


If we are required to implement the changes, then once we have received approval of the design and the log-in credentials, we will begin the development.

User acceptance testing

Once developed, the design needs to be thoroughly checked over by you to ensure it is displaying correctly and that everything is where it should be.

Sign off

Official sign off by your department is required.

The design can now go live.
