Finance for Windows 8

Sep 2011 - May 2012, Bing App Experiences(AppEx) | ASG | Microsoft

As a default app on Windows 8, Bing/MSN Finance app was designed to show the full potential of Microsoft's metro design language. As the main designer, I led the overall visual design, information architecture, and UX. I developed full bleed 'hero' image concept as a signature design element. The app shows the bold use of typography, color, and images. Since our target users were general Windows users, unlike traditional financial apps that have heavy look & feel with black dark themes, I tried to make it feel light and clean while incorporating some of the important conventional financial data design patterns.
