Xiaomi Gallery App

Creating the Gallery app screens for the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold and MIUI12

Project Overview

During the summer of 2020, I gained the opportunity to work as a Visual and UI Design intern for Xiaomi’s gallery and camera team. For my responsibilities, I created visual designs for the newly released Mi Mix Fold, a foldable phone, and the MIUI12 software update.

Mi Mix Fold Gallery Designs

For the gallery app of the Mi Mix Fold, the device has three different orientations:
a portrait folded screen (narrow), and a portrait and landscape unfolded screen (wide).

I designed screens and their different variations for the Recent Photo Gallery flow, the Photo Albums flow, the Memories flow, the Full Picture flow, and more.

Reflection

Over the course of this internship, not only did I gain experience using and creating designs with a company’s design system, I was also tasked with using design heuristics to discover how to create responsive designs that maintain fluidity and consistency. The relationships and experiences I gained greatly grew my design skills, especially in the realm of visual and UI design.

In addition, it was my first experience working with people and interfaces based completely in Chinese. Learning about how to design and work with those in a different culture opened my eyes to the value that diversity can bring into universal design. The values of a Chinese company differed with that of my previous experiences, and it was enlightening to be able to experience the differences that culture can bring to design.
