#009 – Music Player


Today's Daily UI challenge was something I looked ahead and noticed was one of the upcoming challenges. I was looking forward to taking this on. The only concern that I had with this is I didn’t want to imitate a vast majority of the UI's for music players out there. Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, YouTube Music, and SoundCloud to name a few.

From the beginning, I knew I wanted to use the album artwork to feature the colors that would be present in the UI. I accomplished this by giving the background color blur using the current album artwork. This provides an immersive context of what is currently playing. With so many different controls to use while listening to music, I decided to keep things simple with five buttons at the bottom. Even though I am on number #009 out of #100, this one is indeed a favorite.
