Twitch Re-Design

Fourth-year interactivity project

Twitch is a live-streaming video platform that allows millions of people to form communities based on interests in gaming, popular culture and more. Twitch is one of the top live streaming websites alongside other huge companies like YouTube. As an avid user of it myself, I wanted to look into ways the website could be improved even more.

The Problem

Based on personal user experience, as well as speaking to colleagues that brought up similar issues, I realized that there is area for improvement in user experience, navigation and over all functionality for both the desktop and mobile applications. The most significant issues I found that could be resolved were issues with layout and organization within desktop and mobile page layouts, smoother navigation and a more unified system between both the desktop and mobile applications.

Overview of current design

I found that the home page could be re-designed to include the "Browse" page, which was already shown somewhat on the home page. As well, the side, top and other side menus could be condensed into a single menu system.

The mobile version seemed to have features such as "Pulse" that aren't seen in the desktop version, as well as the limitations of modifying your account preferences and accessing information.
