For the family movie ‘Kidnapping’ released in 2017 by film production company Regner Grasten Film, my team and I developed seven web-based minigames for promotional purposes.

Netflix Redesign – A new way of browsing

Engine: Figma

Platform: Mobile

Team: University Project

Main Role: Idea, Research, Prototype, Final Design, Presentation

For an exam project for a User Interface Design class at IT University of Copenhagen we were tasked with redesigning a streaming service of our choice. My team and I, consisting of 4 first year students, decided to rebuilding the browsing experience of Netflix. Built entirely in Figma this project improves particularly on the mobile experience with immersive video previews and gesture navigation. In a mode intended for browsing upcoming titles, Netflix subscribers can swipe right to like a piece of content or left to discard it. Should more users sharing the same login approve of the same piece of content a ‘Watch Match’ is created.
