Inspiring life-long learning
Curiosity.com is a content discovery site dedicated to inspiring the curiosity of life-long learners. This product was incubated within an Discovery’s innovation team of which I was the design director. I stewarded this project from conception to launch. Through the course of the project, I wore many hats, actively managing the front-end development team while leading the product design through UI/UX.
The product was successfully launched in 2014 and would go on to receive 20 million visitors a month and raise $6.5M in funding to be spun out as its own entity.
Democratizing Access to Learning
Original Pitch Slides
Over the course of the first year, I would iterate many times on the experience design. In total, there were some 12 different designs that were produced as part of the exploration and refinement process.
Passive vs Active Learners
Content Discovery Platform
We honed the experience around finding the best video content for learning, which meant more curated playlists and edutainment.
At the time of launch, the site had aggregated over 100,000 videos from across the web, and we organized it into a data model that would power both faceted search and recommendations based on similarity.
