A few months ago (let's say 7) before the release of Nokia N900, there wasn't an OVI Store for this device. During one of those boring winter weekends with nothing interesting to do, I decided to draw a few ideas. I focused on how OVI Store would look for this particular device.

A few weeks after working on my designs, I was surprised by Nokia's own design and release of the OVI store for the N900. I was, actually, expecting much more as it was very similar to other OVI stores for other Nokia handsets. I understand that they wanted to bring the same user experience throughout all the different phones, but with this new real state screen the user interface could have been improved. They weren't able to take advantage of the whole screen, the marketing and sales area wasn't used at its full potential.

I have shared these designs with some of my friends, but I have never shared them with the wide public.
I must say that I admire Nokia's work and do not want to underestimate their job, I just wanted to have a say and share my vision. And it also a good exercise!

  • Thank you for your comment, but let me just clarify something.
    On slide number 2 I am showing Nokia's designs of the current OVI Store, and from that slide onwards I am showing the development of my thoughts and design work.
    On slide number 10 I am comparing/contrasting my final vision and Nokia's vision.
    I only redesigned the home screen. If I carried on doing the rest of it, i would definitely keep the nave bar as it is on the home screen.

  • Interesting. But, would it make sense to keep your tab bar at the same place, either top or bottom across the app. I see that you have the tab bar at the bottom on Ovi home and then you flip to top.
