Client: NT Systems

NT Systems is a young Slovenian start-up company developing high-tech products in the field of marine propulsion systems, electrical engineering and electrical systems.
We have designed several products for the client, who also entrusted us with the development of an overall graphic brand image and the design of accompanying communication materials. All product solutions are characterised by compact and organic shapes. With black, grey and blue colours, they follow the visual identity of the brand, presenting customers with a modern and stylish choice.
Our collaboration began with the design of the control levers. The key challenge was to design a product that would fit into the limited space of the dashboard, while ensuring maximum functionality and user-friendliness. We wanted to keep the proportions but emphasise the buttons and allow one-handed use of both levers. In doing so, we wanted the product to be not only ergonomic and durable, but also pleasant to the touch. We therefore decided on a combination of metal and plastic elements.
In addition to the handles, which also include warning lights, we designed a screen and a graphical user interface on the dashboard. Here again, it was important to us that the design helps to make the user experience as intuitive as possible, while at the same time ensuring clarity and transparency of information.
Compactness and organic design were also the main guiding principles for the design of the engines S50 and T350 . With an efficient design, we ensured that the motors take up as little space as possible, while visually blending in with the rest of the manufacturer’s products. As with the handles, we chose a combination of metal and plastic materials in black, grey and blue.
In line with the brand’s overall image, we have also produced a user manual.
