VMWare Workstation

The VMware suite of products and solutions are are the industry standard for running multiple operating systems as virtual machines on a single platform — PC, Mac, Linux, etc. VMware Workstation Pro allows users to replicate server, desktop and tablet environments on a virtual machine, to run applications simultaneously across operating systems without rebooting.

I created a custom skin for the User Interface which will be available as an add-on for the upcoming release of VMware Workstation 12.5 Pro. The design is completely overhauled, and so are some of the navigation components, based on invaluable usability testing. I also introduced a new icon set, specifically created for this skin. The new look brings this incredible product to the 21st century.
