With the Nokia Storyteller app our aim was to automatically collate your photos and videos or ‘memories’ in a more human way via moments in time or location.
When we combined this with Nokia Here map data we strived to create a natural flow to re-living where and in what context you took your photos.
Storyteller consists of 4 key views. Each was wireframed and crafted in a responsive grid for both phone and tablet.
We developed a first time use for the app which explained all its features and allowed some upfront customisation of the experience.
I worked closely with engineering to produce warm, natural and speedy control of your content using pinch zooming, flick, pan and swipe.
I also continuously tested and refined the concept of ‘Living Image’ animations. Multi-frame sequences, that start automatically while browsing your content so you can truly relive the moment.
With the first release of Storyteller – we created a less mechanical experience for reliving and sharing your memories with family and friends.
By testing design ideas against real world scenarios I also contributed to the roadmap of features for the application. Our experience design was adopted into Microsofts default Photos application for use at a platform level in the Windows Phone OS.
The Big Picture: Nokia has been the market leader in capturing exceptional quality photos on a mobile phone. Launched in Q3 2013 with the brand new Lumia 2520 tablet, and the HD Nokia Lumia 1520.
