  14. 14. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign USER-DRIVEN RESEARCH Research methods involved passive observation as well as active inquiry 14
  15. 15. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign Passive Observation The first portion of the ideation phase was spent observing passengers’ use of the current system at Doha Int’l Airport. 15
  16. 16. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign Labeling Exercises Research was done on passengers to understand the best wording to use for status remarks. Labels that aviation professionals assumed trivial were sometimes not understood by passengers. 16
  17. 17. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign Active Inquiry Preliminary design prototypes were shared with potential users (passengers, frequent flyers, designers and Arabic speakers) for feedback, resulting in incremental improvements. 17
  18. 18. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign LESSONS LEARNED Through the research and observation, deeper problems were uncovered that, if addressed, could lead to a much better passenger experience. 18
  19. 19. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign Language Flipping Most of our passengers were thrown off by the switching of languages between Arabic and English. 19 20s
  20. 20. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign Use of Language The use of language plays an important role in portraying information. Minor changes, e.g. from 
 “Final Call” to “Last Call”, can go a long way in a region where English is not the first language of most. 20
  21. 21. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign User Interface Design Many changes were needed from a graphical design perspective to increase usability, as well as minimize user distraction. 21
  22. 22. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign DESIGN ELEMENTS Visual cues help passengers understand information more efficiently, and graphic elements help achieve the ‘exclusive’ look, setting Hamad Int’l Airport apart from other airports in the region. 22
  23. 23. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign Typography and Color Frutiger, a font made specifically for airport signage, is used. Currently, HIA uses Frutiger for wayfinding signage in English, however we would use it in Arabic as well, as it works better on screens. More subtle colors are used (dark grey instead of pure black, light beige instead of pure white). Lower contrast ensures less eye strain. 23 Contrast is considered good for readability, but not too much. ‫ﻟﻤﺒﻮر‬ ‫ﻛﻮاﻻ‬ Kuala Lumpur

More subtle colors are used (dark grey instead of pure black, light beige instead of pure white). Lower contrast ensures less eye strain.
  25. 25. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign Tailfin Logos The ‘Tailfin Logo’ style enabled us to standardize all airline logos. This allowed for a cleaner look. They are what a passenger sees right before boarding their plane, and using them freed us enough horizontal space to put the airline name as well; which is more legible than the logo. Each logo is meticulously created as a vector, with minute details taken into consideration to match the airline’s livery completely. 25
  26. 26. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign Architectural Elements Prior to the Hamad Int’l Airport Logo/Branding, architectural elements were used to feed into the design of the EVIDS. This ensured the screens were in harmony with the airport facility. 26
  27. 27. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign Other design elements Arabic and English text is placed on the same page to minimize rotation for passengers’ convenience. Passengers can scan QR codes which direct them to the HIA website, so they can check flight information on the go. Weather statuses on boarding gates inform passengers on the destinations. Special icons were created the region, including “dusty” and “sandstorm” icons. 27 ‫ﻟﻤﺒﻮر‬ ‫ﻛﻮاﻻ‬ Kuala Lumpur Adaptation of “Climacons” by Adam Whitecroft
  28. 28. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign PROPOSED DESIGNS The following designs were used in Hamad Int’l Airport for a couple of months until the branded version was completed. 28
  29. 29. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign BRANDED DESIGNS HIA Operations worked together with the branding agency, StartJG, to produce a set of designs that follow the HIA Brand Guidelines. These are in current operation at Hamad Int’l Airport. 33
  30. 30. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign FUTURE PLANS To integrate the system better into the Hamad Int’l Airport ecosystem, incremental changes will need to be made to adapt to the constant change in the airport environment. 38
  31. 31. Hamad International Airport: EVIDS Redesign POTENTIAL PROJECTS • Splitting of screens for MAGS usage • “Baggage belt display” on Arrivals PLB • Installation of EVIDS in Passenger Busses • Integration of EVIDS with HIA mobile app • Addition of walk times on a ‘per flight’ basis • Provision of higher resolution, larger screens • Segregation of flight information by area 39
