Above: I was assigned and challenged by 4i Mobile Applications to create a practical application for use with the Apple iphone. The criteria was an app that by design needed to “solve a problem” or improve the users life (to a certain degree).

As a result I decided to address one of my favorite products of all time, Netflix. This example was an exercise to demonstrate, the understanding of UX and practical, functional design theory.

In this example I utilized a theoretical Netflix API to create a integrated app and browser remote, making it far easier to navigate browser based Netflix as well as offer a ton of additional features, predominantly “defined search criteria” as well as special category options, on the fly rating and browse by film star rating.

Mockups: The design required a few basic wire-frames (seen above) to ensure a smooth UX, which I created in Inkscape as part of my rapid wire-frame kit.

Polish: Aesthetically I decided to run with a modern flat UI, featuring a few subtle skeuomorphic elements, the design includes elegant long drop 5 o’ clock shadows to add some depth to the overall look and feel. The base of the control surface features a subtle matte “rubberized texture” look, to further enhance the overall skeuomorphic appearance.

I decided to stick with a flatter variation of the previously see red that was featured as part of Netflix’s previous corporate ID (before Netflix updated their CID mid 2014).

This UI was designed to be blatantly exaggerated, appearing visually busy like that of a TV, DVD or game console remote as opposed to the more common flat UI designs available.
