My Role: UX/UI Design Lead
Project: Pond5.com Music List View UX / UI Design
The Pond5 site had used waveform thumbnails for audio clips that played audio on hover. Based on feedback from users the team learned that the waveform style was inconsistent with how users expected to view and listen to audio clips. Additionally, numerous users stated that the on-hover play was jarring. In order to give users more control and to make the audio search experience easier to use, the team implemented a music list view that allowed users to start and stop audio clips and scrub content.
