UI/UX & Web Design
Music Streaming Desktop App
Vizia emphasizes the connection between audio and visual arts, and in doing so, transforms the listening process into something new.
Vizia is a music streaming platform that provides a multidimensional listening experience by pairing animated abstractions with songs. By focusing on mood rather than artists or albums, the app offers a new entry point for music choices.
No matter what you're feeling — Vizia can match your energy.
HOW IT WORKS
Vizia prompts users to choose a mood, and offers suggestions based on their selection. From there, the desktop app displays an animation in full screen mode. The style of animation changes based on the tempo of each song in the playlist.
Visuals for any Tempo
Vizia is a tool that aids in creating ambiance. For example, users may leave the animations to play on a bed while talking to friends, or connect the desktop app to a TV during a dinner party.
RETROSPECTIVE & CHALLENGES
One of my challenges was differentiating Vizia from existing music services. I found that returning to my main goal of emphasizing the connection between audio and visual arts helped to re-conceptualize what a web based app might look like.
