Voot : Multiplatform Entertainment Product for Viacom India

Voot – Video Streaming Product

Upon the release of a stronger nationwide broadband in India, Viacom 18 tasked the team at A Different Engine to create one of India's first video streaming products that aggregates video content from many popular channels such as Colors, MTV, VH1, and Comedy Central, and curates them under a single branded experience.

The product was originally created as a mobile application available on iOS and Android, and evolved into a responsive web product and Android TV experience, becoming one of the most beloved multi-platform entertainment products in India. The name Voot, an Indian expression of excitement and joy, was given to the product to celebrate the vibrant and festive culture and audience. The mobile app was awarded Best Apps of the Year 2016 on Google Play, India.

I helped create branding, shaped the visual design system, crafted the interfaces, and helped establish unique interaction models for the product.
