A retro yet modern design aesthetic that could integrate across multiple products, sports, and countries worldwide was developed. Art direction and design were developed for the new and exciting web application, integrated across the app itself, marketing, and social. We launched for the world cup to test the market and gain UX insights to develop the gameplay and unique marketing story.

+ A new brand and contemporary voice for Spot the Ball was developed
+ We created an MVP that players loved to play (World Cup Edition)
+ A core user base to support product development and launch
+ Established sports & media partners ready to back market roll-out in several territories.
+ UX & UI digital design across the product & business
The web app required multiple iterations of user journeys and UX research and testing, constantly iterating and liaising with the management and dev/engineering teams to ensure the user experience, design aesthetic and business objectives were met and delivered upon.
As design UX lead, I collaborated with stakeholders and managed a small design team to understand project goals, requirements, and user needs.
