ORGANIZING THE STRUCTURE OF CONTENT & FEATURES
COMPOSING SOLUTIONS THAT DELIGHT THE USER
After some quick whiteboard sketches (that got erased before I could get a photo of them) I produced my first round of wireframes. I started with a video feed and some menu ideas.
As per usual, my first ideas weren’t the best. I tried several different ideas that looked good on the whiteboard, but failed to do the job once we got to wireframes.
Iterations to Final Solution
I simplified the design considerably through several rounds of iterations and landed on something that we discovered worked really well, especially on a phone screen.
I chose a menu design that would allow for some customization and expansion to include other types of content once the show officially launched.
BUILDING A FUNCTIONAL MODEL TO TEST OUR IDEAS
Because we had such a tight timeframe, we wanted to deliver a high-fidelity prototype to the development team that included all interactions and transitions, etc. We chose Pixate to create the prototype because it would allow us to create native protos that left little question for the dev team as to what we had envisioned.
We were able to share this prototype with Stephen Colbert and his team in New York and they loved it.
