The MEY-Check App was introduced as a digital replacement for the traditional paper-based "MEY-Check" (Model Economic Year Check) training manual, which had long served as a valuable resource for young farmers seeking to master effective farming methods.
A key aspect of this project's success was our collaboration with Square V, a renowned agriculture software development and user experience (UX) design firm based in Victoria. Square V played a pivotal role in developing the software and crafting the customer journeys and wireframes for the app, ensuring that the MEY-Check App was not only robust but also user-friendly and intuitive.
While Square V spearheaded the software development and UX design, our role was focused on the visual user interface (UI) design. We ensured that the app's visual elements, such as colours, typography, and layout, were not only aesthetically pleasing but also user-centric. Our team's contributions included:
The collaboration with Square V allowed us to leverage their expertise in software development and user experience design, while our focus on visual UI design ensured that the MEY-Check App not only functioned exceptionally but also looked great and was easy to use.
The project introduced the MEY-Check App, reshaping farming education to make it more accessible, collaborative, and tailored to the needs of young farmers. This innovative tool empowered the next generation of farmers to adopt best practices and thrive in the ever-evolving agricultural landscape.
“We have been working with the team at Handmade for more than 6 years and they provide all of the visual design for our products. I can't speak highly enough of them – their work is always beautifully and thoughtfully designed and our clients love it. They also are really easy to talk to and don't make you feel stupid for not understanding "design things". I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for design work.”
