UX/UI: Pond5 Content Manager App

Pond5 is the world’s largest, most vibrant video-first content marketplace, providing filmmakers, creators, and producers of all kinds with the content, inspiration, and tools they need to improve their projects. The Pond5 mission is to serve creative communities globally by giving them access to world-class content while also allowing them to monetize their creativity through our innovative licensing platform.



The Pond5 Content Manager App is a desktop plugin used for Final Cut Pro users. They will save time by working directly in their timeline, then simply drag and drop content to check out. We have created this re-design of the desktop app with following goals in mind:

  1. Create logged out dashboard for new users with on-boarding.
  2. Create a logged in dashboard for existing users to have an easy experience to access their needs.
  3. Provide a happy experience for the user to add content to Collections. The user should be able to create/choose which Collection the content will be added to.
  4. Allow users to select, add to cart, and download content in bulk.
