I'm Josh Schaertl - Product design leader that's passionate about building exceptional user experiences that are intuitive, immersive, and compelling.

"The new ESPN App and ESPN+ showcase the culture of breakthrough innovation at ESPN and across The Walt Disney Company". There has been so many teams and moving parts to this. As one of the lead designers on the ESPN app seeing the user experience come together and the strong design system emerge has been one of the most gratifying of my career.

  • My team and I improved the personality, legibility, and user experience of the app through visual enhancements, micro-interactions and improved navigation.
  • We added a new homescreen to balance what is most important for the fan with ESPN’s editorial voice.
  • We re-imagined the watch experience to bring fans a new video destination featuring industry leading live deep catalog of highlights, shows and films. In addition to a full redesign of the ESPN app with an entirely new design language and experience.
  • We integrated ESPN+ which now is seamlessly integrating ESPN+ content throughout the ESPN App. Providing a subscription service that brings thousands of new games and events that fans haven’t had access to in the past.
