In 2010/2011, while I was working at Intuity Media Lab, the Gigaset SL910 phone was one of my main projects. I really enjoyed very much the process to shape, together with my colleagues (Nelly Fuchs and Robert Wilderotter) and the fantastic Gigaset team, a new product from scratch.
The overall process was a quite tough one in terms of development effort. It was the first phone for Gigaset with a state of the art touch user interface, all predecessor product lines were more or less all based on the notion of line-based/text displays. Due to this, we really had to develop everything from the ground up: User Experience, Visual Language, Patterns, Animations etc.
The Gigaset SL910 was finally released at the end of 2011 and is the world’s first cordless telephone with touchscreen technology for the home.
