The Eurovision Song Contest is a widely known, televised competition. The creators of the show approached me to request a redesign of their current count-down site, looking specifically for a visually stunning approach and to rethink how users interact with the site. I designed a concept that incorporated a unique left/right navigation timeline with a drag / swipe feature, whilst closely following the brand guidelines.
The Boup team had a unique travel organiser concept built out, but felt their UI/UX was not up to scratch. They hired me in to rethink how their current system works, bringing their designs up to date and steamlining their user experience. The designs were then coded into the bootstrap framework ready to be implemented into their backend system and launched to the general public.
The designs paved the way for an intuitive user experience, allowing users to instantly see when the optimum time is to travel based on their friends availability. From there, they are provided with flight & hotel options linked directly with popular travel apis, allowing for users to plan and book their entire trip directly on the Boup website along with their friends.
Microsoft contracted me for a 9 month period to work in-house on their new MSN for IE10 & Windows 8 design. With the launch of Windows 8, it was important to create a clean, metro style design for the MSN brand, which had up to that point been quite a busy, text heavy design.
With thousands of existing content pages, numerous channels and multiple languages - it was imperative that the design fit the current content, whilst also mixing in the new style. This was done with a lot of UX planning, and a very structured column grid layout incorporating enough scope to expand across various languages.
Whilst freelancing, I was privileged to work on the redesign of Andrew Lloyd Webber's, Starlight Express. This futuristic stage show is one of the longest running in history, and there was an immediate requirement to redesign the website into something eye-catching and informative.
