An exploration in motion design to help people take great panoramic pictures.
Family of apps
Panorama was one app in a family of camera apps that our team developed for Windows Phone.
I worked closely with an interaction designer and prototyper to develop a UI that could guide people through the steps of taking a panoramic shot, and help them correct it if things went wrong.
This project was big on motion design and we did lots of user testing to see the patterns of behaviour and refine the timings of the visual feedback.
We have always had great feedback on the aesthetics of the Panorama experience, it was quite unique at the time and people often commented it was “better than the iPhone”.
An early version of our Panorama app was even demoed live on stage at Microsoft Developer Con!
