Bringing a design systems approach to the worlds leader in games and entertainment.
Where many many have gone before
IGN has a unique culmination of challenges. It has more than 20 years of content that need to be managed and available to it's more than 150 million audience members anywhere, anytime.
I bring a product design mentality and methodology to designing for this media company, that primarily manifests in developing, maintaining, and enforcing a new design system that is being implemented with our team of developers page by page, along with infrastructure updates, and deep dives into internal tools and content management systems to improve quality of life for editors, and customers.
A few project I'm proud to have worked on include a redesign of the IGN.com homepage, brining social content to the site in the form of IGN shorts, and a lot more in the coming months. One of my favorite parts about working at IGN is getting to involved in every area of design, including research, experience, interface, and branding. Often I'll be responsible for building out prototypes in HTML and CSS for reference as well.
The new system is a light, modern, and responsive set of styles that let content do the talking, accented by a color pallet inspired by the areas surround the headquarters in San Francisco.
