2006 Nokia NGage

Interaction Design for Gaming Platform
IDEO, San Francisco

Nokia engaged IDEO to reinvent the gaming experience for their new line of Nseries smartphones. Building on the dedicated gaming device N-Gage, IDEO defined the Nseries next-gen interface to maximize user experience by creating an integrated framework that allowed people to seamlessly shift between gaming, socializing, and working. By combining recreational games with social networking and work functions, the Nseries elevates the user experience and turns gaming into a more fluid and integrated activity.

I joined the NGage team to help finalize designs and to create engaging video prototypes to share with the client side executive stakeholders, software engineers, and the public at large. We also created a shared intranet site to access all the platform specs.
