As a complement to our previous collection of minimalist high contrast designs for InduSoft Web Studio, we’re introducing new minimalist SCADA/HMI grouped graph symbols this week. These symbols are ideally suited to embedded HMIs, and designed to be easy to read on small displays. More importantly, this stylistic approach to interface design is a trend we expect to grow as more manufacturers embrace “smart” technology. Minimalist designs are already becoming prevalent in devices such a smart watches, because the high contrast and minimally designed graphic elements make the information the key focal point of the screen, but still offer enough visual elements to read it quickly.
