As Google embarked on their Material Design journey, I was excited to experiment as Android launched Wear, TV, Auto, One, and Lollipop

I acted as a UX designer, designer, illustrator, and art director on Android.com for about ten months while at Instrument

It was important to show Android Wear, TV, and Auto in context—show why you'd find a smart product useful versus listing a series of features

All the information in the UI related to a story told through photography. Android Wear connected a group of friends getting together to go to a concert

And where would a group of friends be without the power of Android, Google Maps, and music apps on a road trip

Android TV was a family coming together through their television

Material Design wasn't merely talked about, but demonstrated in the UI

I even managed to work in my illustration style to assist in the demonstration of these new products. Good dog!

bringing it to life

We worked hard to enlist the modeling talents of real friend groups, families, and musicians to capture authentic-feeling moments and make these devices feel more relatable
