AOLNew York - July 2009
Lets be honest, when you think of AOL, design isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. AOL is in need of a fresh new design approach, and this is exactly what I wanted to provide and the reason I decided to join. Though it was difficult at times, with the many different components seen in corporate America, I have been doing the best to make the voice of aesthetics and usability be heard. Since joining a few months ago, we have been rearranging and redesigning many things, so hopefully you will be seeing new changes in all 3 entertainment departments which I am in charge of: Moviefone / Television / Video (along with the brand new Slashcontrol). These have definitely been the largest sites I have ever worked on, with 12 million unique visitors divided between the different departments.
- Lead Designer
- Contract work at AOL
My role varies from department to department. I usually facilitate the communications between the different production departments, namely designers and developers. I have lead the re-design and re-structure of Showtimes, a major destination for online movie ticketing. I have also lead the re-design of the AOL video section, plus created the branding for the new Slashcontrol video portal.
