Redesigning a robust retail security gate to accommodate updated technology and streamlined aesthetics for new market segments.

Understanding the Formal and Historical Brand Language

As part of the next generation product design, we wanted to make sure any new designs would still be perceived as part of a unified - yet advanced - brand language. We studied the progression and variation of formal elements of Checkpoint's product portfolio as a directional launch point.

Understanding the Competetive Landscape

Besides studying Checkpoint's brand language, we also educated ourselves on the industry competitive product environment. This informed us of any formal elements to steer clear of so that we could differentiate our design.


Countless sketches, concept directions, full-scale mockups and CAD modeling explorations led us to a range of possible architectures and aesthetic approaches.

AR Concept modeling

To help inform our final design direction, we modeled top contenders into a HoloLens headset. Besides saving valuable costs of time and money from traditional prototyping, we created the opportunity to visualize solutions in real context.

Pictured is a snapshot of our final direction in context.
