Currencies Trading Solutions (Calypso)

While working for Calypso Technology, this was a significant series of the projects with my involvement.

In most cases the product managers asked for interactive prototypes, which not just simple set of clickable handouts a-la “made in InVision”, but rather fully simulated pre-sales or sales demos. I used Axure RP to develop them.


Introduction to similar products on market, the need of the product to be developed and provided by Calypso.

Iterations of low-fidelity to high-fidelity mockups.

Multiple design iterations on interactive prototype. Adding features to make it dynamic, allowing to play and validate its design and functionality. Internally first, by product management, and then by the clients, potential buyers, and partners.

Forex/Equity Options Flow Pricer (Axure prototype)


The most complex interactions, which include FX trade calculations, are coded with JavaScript, some styles are done with CSS/HTML. JavaScript, css and html are injected in Axure prototypes.


The design process helped product managers to narrow down what products they want to build. Trading solutions were developed and publicly released, and become part of Calypso’s Front Office offering.
