Phone Mode
Power-saving light mode for Google Pixel 4
2019

Developed visual design for interface, product design for core functionality, and interaction design for user experience of an ultra-power-saving "phone-only" mode set to be built for Pixel. Phone Mode allows people to intentionally restrict the capabilities of their Pixel to calling and messaging, thereby enhancing digital wellbeing while simultaneously greatly extending device battery life (potentially up to 7 days).

Above: the new Phone Mode standby screen, which displays the dialer when unlocked. Tapping at the bottom brings the user to messages. The Phone Mode interface is extremely minimal (and black and white) overall in order to conserve device battery life.

Tapping “Messages” on the standby screen allows the user to message their friends through Phone Mode.

Users can also access contacts by tapping the search icon at the top of the stanby screen. Some additional Phone Mode interfaces are currently under creative development.

Users can exit Phone Mode at any time to return to their normal devices (and all the complexity they include).

Above: all screens and complete user experience design for Phone Mode, which was initially set to launch on Pixel 4 in 2019.

Phone Mode is still currently under creative development at Google Creative Lab; I also designed a retro-inspired Nokia-like interface for this project.
