Music Discovery Engine Design Experiment

October 2022

This experiment was meant to demonstrate an app focused UI, a gap that exists in my portfolio with relation to recent paying work (outside of a few now dated personal projects). I wanted to challenge myself and see what I could compile in a single weekend. The premise for this project was a native application that could connect to various APIs (Spotify,, and Apple Music), read your playlists and favorite artists, and then generate advanced recommendations that fit your listening profile. There is also a community element, allowing friends to easily share artist & song recommendations with you in-app, as well as highlight artists that are trending across your contacts.

Animation compiled in After Effects.
