Epidemic Sound

Account management for the next generation content creators.

Problem

The account management in Epidemic Sound had spread out and was not supporting different types of video creators like individuals, businesses or multi channel networks making it hard to do trivial user-type independent tasks like looking at the subscription packages, licenses for the tracks bought, white-listed videos etc. A new way of account management was much needed.

My Account Old Design for Epidemic Sound. As we can see, the Sidebar the top bar and tabs doesn't scale well with priminant CTAs all over the place.

Contextual Categorization

Contrary to how account management was previously done, the new method was not categorized based on function but on context. Example, instead of having separate categories for Sending Invites and looking at invited users, I introduced one single Invitations category. Similarly for subscriptions and licenses.

Sidebar based approach

The new form of categorization was supported by new left sidebar, a pattern, already a part of Epidemic Sound and hence feels a part of the product.
