DROPOUT BY COLLEGEHUMOR
DROPOUT is a unique subscription based comedy platform that offers exclusive original content in Video, Comic, and Chat stories. At Fishermen Labs, my role was to work with the design team to create the best experience for users to enjoy the variation of content.
What sets DROPOUT apart from other subscription-based services is its content in different formats such as Comics and Chats. With the mix of different media, there may be confusion whether a user will be reading a comic or watching a video. The challenge was how to design them distinctly, but also design them as a collective.
In collaboration with the design team in Fishermen Labs and CollegeHumor, we wanted the user interaction to be as authentic as possible. We looked at how Comics were read and organized such as Volumes and Chapters. We implemented page flip as it's a recognizable experience when reading. For Chat stories, we gained inspiration from current social media formats such as Snapchat Stories and Instagram Stories.
