By A. Yucel on 03/03/2024

Productyve is designed as a mindful tool to empower you to cultivate deep focus, protect your well-being, and build sustainable work habits. We want to build a product that would help you. Our core design principles reflect this philosophy.

Principle 1: Minimalism for Clarity

  • Clean and Uncluttered:  We employ a minimalist aesthetics featuring whitespace, intuitive icons, and a limited palette. This reduces visual distractions and promotes mental clarity.

  • Eliminating the Superfluous:  Only essential elements are included in the interface, preventing attention fragmentation.

  • Intuitive to Grasp:  The core functionality of setting timers, customizing intervals, and taking breaks should be clear to users within minutes.

Principle 2: Customizability for Individuality

  • Tailored Work Sessions:  Users can adjust the length of work intervals, short breaks, and dedicated eye care breaks to match their optimal work rhythm.

  • Flexible Settings:  We understand that each person works differently. Users can easily adapt the app to support their unique focus needs and preferences.

Principle 3: Good Software

  • Good Software:  We believe that good software should focus on helping users, rather than locking them in an ecosystem or doing everything to make profit, no matter what it is. Productyve is made to help you, it is designed to help users construct healthy work habits. We want to be honest to you, in order to maintain Productyve, our plan is to add premium features to it, while maintaining the core features free. A lot coming soon, stay tuned!

  • Health-Centered Design:  Productyve's goal is to help users stay productive while also focusing on their well-being. We tried to find the best practices, recommended by doctors, to select the best intervals. But also we know that everyones needs are different so we made this intervals customizable to fit your needs.
