User Flow Chart and Icon

We initially started working with the software engineers and product managers to understand the technology and what capabilities the users would have as amazon members to combine the two mediums. These examples show some higher-level user flows that an amazon user would experience from the product's initial launch. The main user flow (left) shows a user journey from the amazon homepage, introduced via full page takeover. The user flow shown (right) shows a more granular journey, specific to users who have ebooks in their library along with an audiobook match. Below, is an example of primary icon design for WhisperSync for Voice used in both desktop and mobile.
