Spotify Is the Future
Traci Lyn Mitchell and Margaret Snyder, 2018 Showcase
The purpose of our Spotify is the Future project, is to create a flexible and efficient redesign of the information architecture of Spotify that will meet the needs of current users, while also allowing Spotify to continue to remain on the cutting edge of music streaming by facilitating the continued growth of its base as technology and the market place evolve. This will be accomplished by creating a new interface that will be more efficient and user-friendly for both consumers and content creators.
