Free visual design kit for the Amazon Echo Show
We're helping an insurance client explore how new-to-market technologies can create more value for their customers.
Recently we ran a live field study to test a set of services connected to an Echo Show – Amazon’s new smart assistant with a screen.
It’s early days for 'smart displays' like the Echo Show. It was interesting to see how people interacted with the device, especially as its display is more primitive than you might expect from a touch screen application.
Free Sketch templates and usage guidelines
Because the Echo Show is new there aren't yet many resources for designers to draw on. I needed to create some Sketch templates, and I thought it'd be good to share them. They've been carefully constructed to provide a consistent user experience.
- Download the Sketch templates here (zip, 145Mb)
Within the Sketch file you’ll also find:
- Guidelines about how to use the display templates to achieve the look and feel that you want for your skill
- Examples of elements presented on each interface
Feel free to update the templates and make then your own. And if spot something wrong, do let us know!
Amazon themselves provide resources (like fonts and logos), plus guidelines and checklists for designing both graphical and voice interfaces for the Echo Show.
Here are some that we found useful:
