From your desktop to your wrist: how UX is shaping the way we experience music

Diana M. Mundó 7digital

Session type: Case Study
Session duration: 45 minutes

About this Case Study

I will be presenting a case study about the considerations that need to be taken into account when designing experiences that involve music delivered through multiple channels, working with a geographically dispersed team.

I'll also focus on a variety of products that aim to provide a range of services - from streaming and downloading digital music to creating new radio experiences, all delivered through different platforms: radio, responsive, mobile and wearables.

Finally, I will present my personal experience in overcoming the challenges when designing for new devices in emerging markets, the pros and cons of having a geographically dispersed team and the complexity of designing for multiple contexts.
