Maater is an anti-virus software that helps protect your computer and mobile devices so they don't get effected and infiltrate your privacy.
The challenge was to make sure to provide a dashboard that co-aligns with Maater's mission: Provide software that guarantees protection for computers and mobile devices.
When asking questions to users, it's extremely important to find balance between understanding pain points as well as getting familiar with the patterns and rhetoric from people's answers.
How imperative is the efficiency of running a virus software relevant to you?

What purpose does it serve to you by running an anti-virus software?
Using the Lean UX Canvas chart by Jeff Gothelf, this helped get a rundown for laying out the vision for Maater and breaking everything down for building a malware/anti-virus software.
From here, I decided to combine question areas and lean UX canvas as a guide and combine that with the framework for Jobs to be Done to break down the situation, motivation, and outcome for Maater.
In order to grasp that challenge ahead, it was a good idea to see other anti-virus competitors, see what worked well for them in what Maater can extract from those respective companies, and ultimately turn them into Maater users.

Here are the color palettes and symbols I have used in designing Maater's theme.
For the color's, orange and green provided a mood that recognizes the synergy that takes place for users to be keen on providing attention to. These colors represent the overall brand, look, and feel to protect your info and devices from slowing down.
And of course, I didn't want to forget adding the typography, buttons, and symbols.
