Due to its untraditional layout, the web app was hard to use for most people. The immersive feeling that you expect from a video streaming app was missing. It also lacked many essential features. All of this lead to our video views going down, and we wanted to fix that.
The intent of designing this website is to push the boundaries of my design skills. I have always been fascinated by magazine layouts, and I wanted to recreate some of them for the web. I am nowhere close to where I intended to be, but this was a fun experiment.
The idea here is that I want to keep challenging what I think is a “good” design. I hope this stands as a reminder to me that there is so much more to be explored. At the same time, I have been focussing a lot on accessibility. Please reach out to me with your words and feedback.
