Service engineers maintaining electrical exhaust-purification filters needed more convenient tools for their jobs.

I designed a speech interface and a reporting tool, where the key idea was to combine speech recognition in limited-vocabulary situations with speech recording and later transcription for unrestricted speech.

Like several previous examples, the video tells a little story where the use of fairly detailed interface designs is enacted.

The main difference is in the technique. I used cutout animation to put the video together, with hand-drawn characters acting on top of collage backgrounds made from photos I found in old books.

There were two reasons for choosing cutout animation. First, I couldn't figure out a way of shooting live action inside an electrical filter. Secondly, I wanted the video to seem disposable since the design was quite tentative and I wanted all stakeholders in the process to feel free to criticize it.
