With the DISH Anywhere(DANY) app, you can watch every TV channel you get at home on a mobile and tablet. Dish subscribers can watch live or recorded programs anytime, anywhere. Also, manage home television with a full-featured DVR manager and a searchable program guide. It was the second app our UX team created after Dish Explorer. We designed for mobile and tablet and had our app rating above 4.0 on the App Store.

ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITY
Worked in collaboration with other UX designers, product managers, and engineering teams. Created unique visual experiences with brands that have clear meaning and impact. Defined and created output to communicate relevant visual languages, created iterations to investigate solutions and apply feedback from users, leadership and team members.
IPHONE COMPETITIVE RESEARCH
We had competitive research for main key screens which are sign-in, menu, home, and guide with Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Direct TV, Hulu, and Xfinity. It helped in learning new ways to serve our users. Also, it allowed us to use data spot for new opportunities and showed the exact content we need to be producing.

UI DESIGN PROCESS
Before I joined Dish, one of our designers created the first feature of DANY with Dish's branding. It had drop shadow, graduation and glossy graphics. Noticed that it was behind visual trends of 2016 so I created a modern graphic style with the flat design concept and dark theme that they’d not used before. But also, I tried to blend Dish's branding. The feedback was great. Users had less eye strain and it allowed easier focus on video content with the dark theme.

FINAL DESIGN FOR TABLET
Started design of the mobile first and transferred with the same visual language to the tablet.
Our engineering team was in Bangalore, India. It was hard to communicate with them even though we were using Jira tickets, so I created documents called “Finding Bugs below.” It improved our communications and made the process faster and more efficient.
