ABC Player

Windows 8 App Design, 2013

The ABC Player was an iOS and Android app that let users watch ABC shows on demand. In 2013, I worked on a Windows 8 version of the app for the launch of the Microsoft Surface tablet. My role included research, UX/UI design, and development support.

Introducing ABC Player on a new platform

In order to design this app, I first familiarized myself with the Windows 8 interface guidelines. I spent a day at Microsoft learning the design principles on layout, hierarchy, and user interaction. Our design challenge was adapting the core functionality of the existing app to the new framework. We explored different approaches, and in our final design, we arranged our content (shows, seasons, and episodes) to work within the hierarchy of hub, landing, section, and detail pages. I was also responsible for delivering assets, providing specs, and conducting VQA.
