With countless shows across multiple platforms, finding what to watch can be daunting.

The challenge

Minnow balances between the viewer and streaming providers as both a B2C and B2B platform, aiming to meet both user types' needs. The main goal was to design an intuitive interface familiar to average VoD users while handling massive data complexities vital for providers. The result is a flexible, adaptable interface, easy to navigate for inexperienced users. Whether a viewer or a provider, all users can comfortably enjoy the platform.

Providing a bird's-eye view of all the data the user decides to subscribe to, the Dashboard served as a clear, concise and tailor-made heart of the whole operation.

Combining neat, uncluttered design with building-blocks-functionality of the widgets, the Dashboard has been constructed with maximum performance, minimum confusion in mind. Seeing things at a glance has never been simpler.

Widgets are the core of Minnow Insights, presenting complex data simply and directly. They offer broad possibilities, from viewership figures and trending shows on any platform to more detailed data like age range, gender, and ethnicity of viewers. Adding a new Widget to the Dashboard is a straightforward process, ensuring an intuitive experience for all users.

Saved lists

Minnow's standout feature is its 'Saved lists', enabling users to build playlists across all streaming services for a unified VoD experience. Besides its algorithm learning user behavior, Minnow also offers playlists curated by global film critics for immediate viewing. This innovation reduces browsing time and enhances viewing.

Design system

Consistency was crucial in Minnow's design. Our bespoke design system ensures future additions align with the existing style, from color palette to typography, icons, grids, and component sizes. This system guarantees uniform design throughout the product.

We have designed a broad range of variants for the most common and frequently used elements, making it seamless to incorporate in any project, regardless of the situation.The number and scope of the variants is a fool-proof way to ensure none of the components are ever used out of their desired context.


Nothing is left to chance when it comes to our guidelines. By setting a standardized size for each and every one of the UI's spacing, we ensure that every single element of the UI looks and works like clockwork. No fail.

Managing a large project like this required a disciplined three-phase workflow, ensuring clear goal-setting and client communication to prevent misunderstandings. Our team efficiently navigated from user research, client interviews, design steps, to coding.
