DMAX Germany Video OnDemand

  • Purdie Gibson

User experience, user interface and interaction design for native iOS and Android apps. In consultation with Accenture and Discovery Channel, London.

I worked with the project managers and development teams at Accenture and Discovery at their offices in Chiswick. As a UX and UI designer, I assisted them in developing the iOS and Android apps for DMAX Germanys video on demand service.
The brand identity was already set and a CMS site had already been designed by my team for development at Accenture. So, for the launch of the new DMAX Germay site, the team also wanted a video on demand app to be developed.
As well as working on site with Accenture, I was also responsible for creating and in presenting the following documents to the head of DMAX in Germany, which is part of Discovery Channels European headquarters here in London.
Most of our meetings were held on Skype and went very smoothly with agendas sent before the calls.
Communications were clear during the iOS development, but there were some hiccups with UX for the native Android app as different members had conflicting opinions. After much testing of similar apps on varying Android devices and whilst also reminding the team of very tight deadlines, I was able to persuade the team of the best possible solutions in the user journey.
The apps were simple and easy to use and both platforms launched on time.
