I joined the Xbox Dashboard team on a contract to assist in the re-design of the dashboard as well as creating an interface for the Kinect device.

In my time with the team, I created a new design for the Xbox Guide, created new icons based on the Metro Guide, and created interactions between the dashboard and Kinect.

Designed icons for the dashboard based on the Metro Style Guide.

 
 

Kinect Interactions

Working along with User Researchers and other interface designers we created iterations of ways the user interface would work using the Kinect.

'Drea was a very professional and collaborative designer on the team, who was able to perform her tasks with minimal amount of direction. Personally, she brought a positive attitude to work every day, and was able to work well with everyone. It was definitely a pleasure to work with her!
