PROJECT BRIEF

THE REEL is a concept application for a potential subscription streaming service that serves up sports highlights curated to the taste of each user.
In addition to the stream selection page, there is also an interactive 'score-wheel' that can be rotated to view specific teams highlights based on the users likes/dislikes.

Synopsis

The rise of streaming has put pressure on the sports entertainment industry, and as more people are cutting the cable, more people than ever are turning to alternatives powered by the world wide web. Sports highlights are one of the most talked about things around the water-cooler at the office, so why not make a Netflix-esque subscription service to do nothing but view said highlights (instead of the full game)? 

The Reel was pitched to us by a mysterious man who claimed to be apart of the inner circle of the ESPN group and said it had the potential to become BIG. However at the end of the project, he mysteriously vanished and did not pick up any of the work we created.. a shame.

Goals

1.  CREATE AN 'ELECTRIC' BRAND The client wanted the design of the app to give off an 'electric' vibe that could potentially charge the user for their sports highlight viewing experience.

2.  "DEAD SIMPLE" TO USE - It's incredibly easy to use THE REEL! Just sign up, pick some sports and away you go on your sports highlight viewing!

3.  SCORE WHEEL - The client wanted a 'score wheel' within the app. Unfortunately, none of us truly knew what this meant.. so I came up with an actual wheel interface for viewing scores and highlights.
