Ember is on a mission to create enjoyment by adding precise temperature control to the way we eat and drink. Along with the device designed by our industrial designers, I helped design the companion app that allows you to precisely control the temperature, save presets, and view various settings.
The app itself was rooted in the idea of reflecting the device as simply and beautifully as possible. As your mug heats up to preserve the temperature of the beverage, the gradient would change to reflect the temperature. The dial at the bottom mimics the hardware's functionality, and it pulses subtly to let you know that the mug is working to reach the set temperature. As a discoverable functionality, you can also swipe up to pull out the presets drawer.
