Concept #8

Concept UI for Smart and connected televisions.


I wanted to create something that users would be familiar with, my main inspiration was mobile applications and how they are accessed and navigated.

What I did

  • Wireframing & prototypes
  • High fidelity designs
  • Usability & feature specifications
