RIM BlackBerry PlayBook A Tablet Experience Designed for Entertainment
BlackBerry’s formerly known as Research in Motion’s (RIM) Vice President of User Experience, Don Lindsey, approached us, at Artefact, to help them design the user experience for their new tablet, BlackBerry Playbook.
In tight collaboration with BlackBerry’s corporate user experience team, we explored different ideas, approaches, core gestures, interaction concepts, visual design, and animation concepts.
The teams also explored different solutions for easily switching between applications, managing interruptions, multitasking scenarios, notifications, sample applications, and the overall UX framework. The exercise resulted in many of our ideas being included in the final shipping design, as well as additional engagements with BlackBerry.
