Sonos UI Concept

 

Sonos UI Concept

Sonos is 100% quality-obsessed and their products show it. I use my Sonos speakers daily and love them, but their Mac Controller App just doesn't reflect the brand quality, is inconsistent with their website and app designs, and is desperately in need of an update. They may never update it, but I had to take on the challenge.

Taking inspiration from their other UI and speaker designs, the UI gets stripped down and rebuilt into something sleek, clean, and modern. Icons have been updated and refined across the screen and a sea of blue gradients and texture is exchanged for dark, solid backgrounds that put a focus on the album artwork for the music playing at the time. This design sets up the music to look as good as it sounds on Sonos.

 My update concept for the Sonos Controller App for Mac. This flows much better with their other interfaces and allows the album artwork and music to be the focal point.
