A new UX a concept for social media
After receiving a brief to redesign the the gaming social network ‘playfire’, I developed a web app interface to allow users to access previously fragmented areas of the site more easily.
The design is based on a three column ‘accordion’ layout with fixed scrolling panels. The page structure extends into the relevant content area when a navigational element is selected from the left. This gives a visual hierarchy and structure seen in desktop email applications like Outlook Express. The layout strength is that it allows users to browse and filter content quickly whilst leaving giving great flexibility for the introduction of new types of content.
