Ever since Art Director, Gabriel Mendes left his last job he thought that it would be a good time to redesign the PopCorn Time app for two reasons: (1) because he loves the app so much and (2) because Gabriel never liked the PopCorn Time layout. Let’s see his redesign!
So before I start design the app I had made a lot of sketch and wireframes to understand the PopCorn’s user thinking: Me in this case. As a movie lover as I am I tried to let the flow easier than the current version and this is the results.
Did you know about that feeling when you love something but think that it could be much better? This is my start point to do PopCorn Time Redesign. When Airbnb, Virgin, Google, and others brands showed us their new designs I felt that they had a good UX preoccupation and became their designs more friendly and lovely. This excite me!
For everything I do I always think how effective it would be before start it. A good design is nothing without any idea behind, and the opposite. Still talking about ideas and effectiveness I always like to put some in my projects. And I find inspiration from everything! Among designers and advertisers I have a lot of people that I love to follow, but I’ll highlight just 3: Tobias van Schneider, Felipe Elioenay, and Reed Collins.
Try go to work to different ways everyday, travel, meet new people and places, read a lot about something you never heard before, and find new ways to be happy. Think out the box!
