THE BRIEF

Nest provides an innovative, sleek new way to control the temperature of your home from anywhere.

During the sketching process I began to work through issues that the current nest desktop system has: things like presenting the information in a comprehensible way that is not an overwhelming dump of temperature settings. These sketches influenced my final designs:
