(UX & UI design)
Updating Telegraph's breaking news application
Koiton was invited to assist with improving the circa 2014 breaking news mobile app. While refining the experience of the current live app, the business wanted to explore more ambitious options that would vastly improve metrics.
Partnering with the Telegraph's UX resource, discovery sessions were conducted, concluding in a business validated new model. This was subsequently fast tracked into a high fidelity prototype for reader validation cycles.
The prototype was praised by test participants and the business. While actual development was blocked by technology infrastructure delays, many of the frontend solutions where transitioned into the current app.

To reduce impact of the redesign to Telegraph's change averse readers, a reskin (lower right) was developed for the current live app (lower left) to help smooth the transition to the new styling and added features.
