After researching and reading the documentation regarding legal requirements for in-car dash board graphics, and the guidelines for Android Auto I began sketching ideas around how the BBC iplayer could work and what a typical user flow could be. After numerous sketches and ideas, I then became to create low fidelity wireframes, which I then made prototypes and tested.
The BBC has an incredibly strong visual language for all of its products, including the iPlayer. Firstly I read all of their guidelines to ensure I followed all of their rules and then began to adopt their visual language into the Android Auto, Material visual Language which was also restricting.
Although the BBC uses Gill Sans for its primary typeface, the Android Auto guidelines was extremely restrictive in changing typography as its default Roboto was specifically designed for Small screens to increase legibility, therefore I had to use the default Roboto for the product.
