Initially we tested several different navigation paradigms to see what users preferred. The main problem to overcome was making sure the navigation worked well with a TV remote control.
After initial testing feedback, we iterated our design of the preferred model, presenting our findings and solutions with weekly updates to project managers and senior stakeholders.
Further formative testing and analysis allowed us to incrementally improve our design.
Making sure not only that the IA worked and was easy to navigate, but also that it was robust and flexible enough to cater for additional content and new features.
As the product matured, we constantly explored new ways of taking the product to the next level.
Working closely with team members to stay ahead of issues and make sure key milestones of the project were delivered on time.
