Interface Redesigns

These are redesigns of audio software (VST plug-ins) which I have designed in my free time as practice. The objective of these studies is to practice organizing visual data, grouping, enhancing use of screen space and translation of complex audio concepts into easy to use interfaces.

All the original designs and softwares are copyrighted to their original developers and designers.
