Allrecipe's most loved Dinner Spinner app as a responsive Adroid experience.





More and more home cooks are bringing tablets and phones into the kitchen to reference recipes directly from their devices. At the time this app was launched the smartphone / tablet markets were increasing exponentially each year. For Allrecipes this meant reaching millions of home cooks seeking recipes from their devices with the goal of putting dinner on the table.

At Allrecipes I worked closely with product managers and engineers of multiple scrum teams plus other members of the design and marketing team. My role as a UI/UX designer was very collaborative especially with other designers. I worked iteratively on a variety of products including the main website, an Android app, iOS Apps as well as a Windows app.
