Google EPUB Search is powered by the Google Books API and enables users to search for free EPUBs and read them on the Google Books platform. Although Google Books features many classic novels in the public domain, the search results often return hidden gems.

I created full colour mockups of the landing and search results pages for desktop and mobile view in Figma before designing in the browser.

I wanted to design an unconventional search page that wasn’t your typical white screen with a search bar. Using flat design elements inspired by Google’s Material Design, I chose to use a bright purple colour scheme and card based layout for the search results page to create an unexpected search experience that still remains easy to scan.
