Create a more functional media platform with the incorporation of dynamic new features for better file management.
— Our role
Concept, UI/UX Design
For a popular platform known for managing media and gaming content on mobile devices, regardless of the brilliant concept behind the project, Google Play is ridden with drawbacks that render the platform unsuitable for users publishing content. Our team at Flatstudio revamped the platform with a complete overhaul of its features to have what is now an improved and more efficient file management system.
From old to new playground.
The old platform design operated on a less navigable interface with drab and lacklustre colours giving the platform and overall dry and plain theme.
You can have it all in new Material design.
We created a homepage where users can access all of the platform's functionalities and features in quick and easy steps. Here you would find well laid out categories with added features for recommendations, subscriptions, new and popular releases all in brand new vibrant colours.
