Introducing ABC Player on a new platform
Building the ABC Player app on this operating system required a working knowledge of it's principles. I spent a day at Microsoft with the platform product manager to learn the design language—it's hierarchy structures, interactions patterns, and animations. My responsibility was to figure out how the core functionality would adapt to this new framework. With the UX guidelines and our objectives, I explored different layouts. Our final design placed features, shows, and episodes into the hub, section, and detail page screens in a way that made sense. In addition to design delivery, I was also responsible for providing assets, specs, on-the-fly guidance of edge cases, and VQA to the engineers during development.
