On Windows Phone, Bing is just one tap away from the hardware search button. It pulls data from and showcases results in the style that fits right in the OS. In 8.0 release, it received a major update which streamlines the interface technology and adds some new features.

It is the first time my team working on Windows Phone platform. I started with the result page redesign for Local queries (restaurants, coffee shop, hotel and etc). Later continued to work on new Instant Answers. By doing hands-on design, I learned a lot about Windows Phone visual language. To make quick design decision, and help team members to ramp up, I wrote style guide documents about font, spacing and common templates.
