Radioplayer is a joint venture between the BBC, Guardian Media Group, Absolute Radio and RadioCentre. As well as streaming live radio, the app had to pull through metadata related to the station and programming. It would play on both Android and iOS so we approached it as though designing two versions. They would use the same functionality and overall design but also feel native to each device.
We began by wireframing the app to define the layout and key features and created moodboards to show our design inspiration. Clickable prototypes were produced to demonstrate exactly how we saw the app working.
We collaborated closely with Radioplayer’s in-house development team, working together to iron out issues quickly and smoothly. We re-evaluated and challenged our design at every stage, ensuring that not only did the final product match our vision, it worked beautifully.
