The MAYA Case Studies

Our clients value design as a strategic tool. Many of them come to us because of the benefits they gain from our symbiotic position between advanced research and applied product development. Rather than waiting to see what tomorrow brings, our clients rely on us to help them invent it. We help them to anticipate and capitalize on technological change.

Carnegie Library

Despite an early and influential role as organizers, protectors, and providers of information, libraries have not always evolved in tandem with the desires and expectations of their customers.


Crossbow

We helped Crossbow with the development of their next-generation, crop-monitoring system.


DARPA | Visage

MAYA developed an information-centric environment that we call Visage.


Digital Equipment | Workscape

Workscape enables users to work directly with information in a continuous, three-dimensional space.


Eaton | Home Heartbeat

A hassle-free “home awareness” system uses a wireless network of sensors to provide peace of mind, becomes a Wired Magazine featured fetish, and positions an old-line electronics manufacturer as an innovator.


Eaton | Next Generation Meter

Looking over their line of highly successful power meters, Eaton product managers, engineers, and salespeople wondered how they could break the mold of power meter interfaces.


F2 Technologies Scouting Device

F2 Technologies | Scouting Device

Former major league player Barry Foote saw a business opportunity in the clumsy, inefficient, and aggravating methods scouts use to collect and share data about players.


LogicLibrary | Logidex

After one of their best customers recommended a usability study, LogicLibrary recognized the need to streamline and improve their user interface. LogicLibrary asked MAYA to help restore the clarity of their original idea.


MAYA | Interstacks

Interstacks eliminates boundaries by creating a system of interoperable devices, even if they were never intended to work together.


Merrill Lynch - ml.com

Merrill Lynch | ml.com

MAYA translated and extended the Merrill Lynch brand for the web. Intuitive organization and navigation, and a consistent brand experience, make it much easier for their customers to do business with them.


Merrill Lynch | MLX

Merrill Lynch | MLX

MAYA designed the web portal, the MLX brand for Direct Markets, and many other artifacts that deliver an experience with the MLX brand.


Philips | Equos

Lighting systems become far more flexible when lights, switches, and sensors communicate wirelessly.


Personal Universal Controller

Pittsburgh Digital Greenhouse | Personal Universal Controller

In cooperation with Carnegie Mellon University, MAYA has developed a personal, portable interface that works across multiple devices. We call it a “Personal Universal Controller” or PUC (“puck”)


The MAYA Community Directory

Rhiza | Community Catalog

Rhiza’s Community Catalog applications, powered by the Information Commons, can integrate data from thousands of public agencies, non-profits and private organizations.


SoloHealth

Leaders at SoloHealth saw an opportunity to change the game in the industry–and for the consumer. MAYA helped to facilitate this vision.


U.S. Postal Service | User Experience Design

Everyone uses the US Postal Service, but the experience is not always completely satisfying, and sometimes it’s confusing—signature confirmations, the variety of envelopes, the choice between certified and registered mail.


Major Retailer Personas Development

[ Major Retailer ]

We helped a major retailer develop personas and related tools to assist their interaction designers respond more directly to the goals of online shoppers.
