Creditex, a wholly owned subsidiary of IntercontinentalExchange, Inc. (ICE), is a leading interdealer broker for credit default swaps (CDS) and bonds, operating a hybrid model of voice and electronic execution and was the first interdealer broker to offer electronic CDS trading in 2004.
This was a desktop application for the credit derivitives company, CreditEx. The screens created here were all done in a period of a couple weeks. I did all layout and initial design work (although the interface used in one version of the comps was loosely based on Macromedia's Flash program at the time).

The application needed to be extremely customizable and accommodate multiple configurations, such as multiple monitor set-ups. Several configuration screens were designed to allow complete customizability. Users worked with extremely time-sensitive data, so highlighting price changes and providing several methods of alerts was critical.

As a side note, I did not have access to the current application or any users, and no background in credit derivatives. So I was the perfect choice for this project. ;)
