I’ve been online since 1989, and working on the internet since 1995. My client list includes The Economist, HBO, Audible, Ubisoft/Gameloft, Rockstar Games, and Ask.com. I’m a visual designer (mobile & web) and have been focusing on UI/UX for the past few years. I’m skilled with most industry-standard software and do most of my web development in WordPress.
My team redesigned and relaunched Economist.com's homepage in mid 2008. I produced mockups, was involved in user experience tests, produced page interface elements.
Using the British Oxford-style debate as a format for discussing topical issues, the Economist Debate series served as a way for users to interact with writers and speakers. It was the flagship project that invited users to contribute to the site and build a community of like-minds. I was key designer. This is the splash entry page for version 1.0., which was live until Oct 2008.
The Economist Debate Series needed a central point to display user opinion polls, user comments, speakers, etc. The choice was made to make it metaphorically very literal and interactive. This version of the Debate was live until Oct 2008.
