Recently I was given the opportunity to work on a side project with Alex Styl and another craftsman because Novoda wanted to showcase an Android TV demo to our client.
Firstly, I collected everything I could find about not only Android TV but anything to do with design for big screens including blog posts, videos and guidelines. Unfortunately, I have to say, compared to design resources for tablets and phones, there is very little available for Android TV.
For that reason I decided to create some resources myself! I came up with the idea of an Android TV design template that anyone interested in designing for the big screen could use as a starting point. It’s based on the screenshots from the Android TV Design Guidelines.
