eBay for Pebble

eBay’s app for the Pebble smart watch allowed eBay users to browse through the latest items matching their interests via the eBay feed, and watch an item so they can bid on it or buy it later.

As the design lead for eBay’s wearable products, I worked with a very small, passionate team to launch the initial eBay experience on the Pebble smart watch. I collaborated directly with the Pebble team and, in addition to designing the full end-to-end experience as well as creating all the design assets, I also pitched in to do QA, marketing and even a little product management. One of the most fun parts of this project was determining the best way to render an item image in bitmap for the watch (which, even at the low resolution, was still a helpful way for users to know they were looking at the right type of item).
