User Experience Designer

Food Network "In The Kitchen" iPad App

  • Role:  Information architecture
  • Interaction design

Produced in conjunction with the "In The Kitchen" iPhone app, the original design for the iPad version was done before the release of the actual device. I remember how exciting it was to work on a new device with new UI patterns. Once iPads were available, a round of usability tests were performed. When the Food Network iPad app was released, it was a top seller within the App Store.

How do you design for a device that doesn't even exist yet?

Without a frame of reference other than some screenshots from the keynote, I began trying to think through what would be the fastest and easiest way to browse through recipes. A lot would be learned from this early design.

 Recipes included recipe box and shopping list features that synced across iPad, iPhone and website.
