Navigation should focus on search/discovery first and user features (my recommendations, watchlist, etc) second.
The home page should drop users directly into discovery. In terms of content, it should include different carousels or feature lists (horizontal or vertical) and include sections like My Watchlist, Recommendations and iGEMSelections. This page should play with different ways to highlight featured content with a combination of graphics and text, while also calling out some user interactions, like recent reviews or recommendations from users I am following. We will likely do "showcases" or lists of films or tv series with a theme. There are some examples on mubi:
This is the advanced search page. Discovery is a priority for our platform. Search should be intuitive and allow for deep customization when desired. Users should be able to access advanced search functionality by filtering on streaming platform, score, genre and "mood", defined by a list of emojis. We may also want to have different settings for display, as a list or graphic view.
Users should have a profile page that has a degree of customization. The profile page will highlight the user's interactions including reviews/recommendations, watchlist, favorites, etc.
See link to Mubi as rough sample:
