The Amazon Fire TV’s user interface is beautiful in its simplicity. The clean lines, simple grid, and flat interface leave no room for complaints. However, a flat design wasn’t the only UI considered. Panos Vassiliadis, interface designer of the Fire TV, has posted several screenshots of a bolder, more three-dimensional alternate Fire TV user interface which he himself is more fond of than the interface which shipped on the Fire TV.
Here are a few more shots of the alternate interface. Let us know in the comments which interface you prefer. Interestingly enough, this alternate user interface and the one which shipped on the Fire TV were designed more than a year ago since Panso Vassiliadis, according to his linkedin page, left Amazon’s design studio in March of last year.
