6PLAY TV PORTAL
Wiztivi is a worldwide specialist in interactive user interfaces dedicated to set top boxes, TVs and other connected devices. During the 4 months between my 2nd and 3rd year of interaction design studies, I had the opportunity to work for Wiztivi’ studio as interaction design intern. This team project allowed me to take part in the union of UX and UI designers, and to create this service being surrounded by experts.
6play is the catchup TV service of all the M6 channels. This is a LIVE, REPLAY & VOD portal, including antenna and web content. Suitable for deployment across all boxes from all operators, it provides users with an uninterrupted experience.
This project was a particular challenge: the design had to evolve according to the environments of the different channels (as you can see on the next glimpse), and we had to take into account the specific needs and technical adaptations expressed by each operator.
AN INTUITIVE INTERFACE
The service was first created for desktop computer so we had to split up its ergonomics, to adapt the user experience to the TV screen, keeping the service’s visual identity. After working on the wireframe, we found how to reorganise the structure, and proposed new interactions. By combining two levels of menu in the header (the channel name over the type of programme), the customer path, by the access to the results, is optimised. Our team also worked on the navigation animations of this service. We spent time collaborating with the R&D department in order to create the best transitions & animations according to the performances of the targeted devices.
This first internship in the domain of interaction and web design was an opportunity to discover the working world. The enterprise context was new to me, and was a perfect way to follow the projects from the initial idea to their realisation. I learned every part of the designer’s role: from the concept, research, wireframes, but also the communication (with colleagues, designers, developers, clients), and the reiterations before the final delivery.
Thanks a lot to the Wiztivi’ studio for this rewarding experience.
