TP Vision & NSPYRE 06/2013—08/2013
The Cloud Explorer app is a cloud-based services application running on the Smart TV platform. TPVision would like to use Cloud Explorer to expand their Philips Smart TV platform. The Cloud Explorer app is designed and implemented undertaken by Nspyre in cooperation with TP Vision.
My responsibilities were on designing the interactions and the final look-and-feel of Cloud Explorer. To cope with the high speed development, the Agile approach was selected. The iterative design process was applied to ensure design quality.
I worked closely with the product owner to create the logical workflow. The interactive prototypes were made to allow for testing aspects such as functionality or design without connection to actual software. My visual designs reflected the TP Vision design guideline. A design document was created to help the development team understand the UI specification during building the final product. Besides, I supported the development team to build up Cloud Explorer in HTML and CSS on the Android platform, accurately transferring the designs to safe guard the correct implementation by the development team.
The project was completed in short 2 months. The Cloud Explorer app was announced by Maarten de Vries (CEO of TP Vision) at IFA 2013 in Berlin, the world’s leading trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances.
