Livestand

Role

For most of the work shown here, I was the sole designer. I was part of a small design team that established our larger grid and information architecture patterns together, as well as product managers and a mobile development team.

Setup

Livestand was an iPad specific app from Yahoo!, meant to be a customizable content platform. Users could declare their interests, subscribe to specific topics or publications, and interact with modules throughout their reading experience. I worked with a small team of designers on several aspects of the app including UI, UX, and visual design.

Each publication in the Livestand app was meant to have its own look and feel that would fit the content. Below are a few examples of different visual pages for different types of content and publications.

Another aspect to this project was an initiative for Facebook integration. Below is a pattern I designed to house several different types of content that might be posted to Facebook (in 2011).

Polls

To increase engagement, we wanted to add relevant polls alongside a user's content. I was in charge of how these polls would function, and how they would fit within the content experience. Below are a few wireframes from my process of designing how this would work.

Livestand.com

Unfortunately no longer live, I was responsible for the visual design of livestand.com. Because our templates were so varied that there wasn't a distinct style for all of Livestand, I took the blues for the header gradient from the loading screen of the product. The purpose of the site was to inform users about the app and ultimately drive downloads.
