    overview

    Shemaroo Entertainment Limited has made its mark in the Indian Entertainment industry by being one of the oldest players in content ownership, aggregation and distribution.

    With a collection of more than 3700 movie titles, they offer services to customers across the globe.

    For over 5 decades, Shemaroo has redefined itself to cater to the consumer environment. Having seen the need to be relevant in changing times, they wanted to have an independent digital platform where viewers could access their content.

    Fractal Ink was brought on board to create Shemaroos OTT platform, ShemarooMe. The platform would be available on web, smart phone and TV.

    Having no independent digital presence before, it was a challenge for the Fractal team to create a complete OTT experience, across multiple devices, in a span of 2 months.

    To tackle the challenge in the best way possible, the team worked towards creating a platform that took the classics of Indian entertainment and brought them alive through a modern and minimalist interface.

    The team made the best of the two months and created an all-round OTT experience that looked appealing and ranked high in terms of usability.

    Usually OTT platforms use a darker colour palette but the Fractal team wanted to experiment with brighter colour combinations and gradients for ShemarooMe. This helped retain the essence of the brand and stood out amongst competitors.

Designing the subscription model entails a holistic understanding of the consumers thought process. Based on research, there is an evident difference in the content consumption of the local and international Indian viewers of Shemaroo. Hence, the Fractal team customised separate onboarding journeys for both the target segments.

Using a lighter background for visual engagement

Using a lighter background for visual engagement

Making a layout that helps the viewer engage with the content is the key to enhancing the experience of an app. Keeping this in mind, the Fractal Team took a clean minimalist background to bring about a balance in the design so that the viewers dont find it overbearing.

Nuanced usage of geometric forms

The app has truly tried to help the viewers breakdown its visual understanding. For every form of content, whether it is movies, TV shows, or music, the representation is done using different geometric forms in an extremely unobtrusive manner.

Content defines the Crowd

Being a content aggregator has its advantages and ShemarooMe was built on the app with content exclusive to the Indian audience, the design aimed at highlighting exclusivity in all its inclusiveness.
