Bwin.Party

Jun 9th, 2014

Well over a couple thousand hours were spent on all aspects of the SDL at bwin.party; from analysis to design to maintenance and more. PartyPoker just being one of the projects worked on in this time. Other projects include: Foxy Bingo, Cheeky Bingo and Mirror Bingo.

Background & Team

Background

I worked efficiently on a number of aspects regarding the services Party Poker provides; most notable of these is their WordPress blog. For 2 months prior to its launch, I had prepared the blog which was then launched in November of 2013. Accompanying it would be 7 custom widgets and 2 plugins all suited and tailored for the brand.

Well pleased with this development,  I would further go on to launch a new design of the blog which would see an additional custom widget and 2 additional plugins.

Team

I worked closely with the UX expert at Bwin.Party to produce many interactive elements of the Party Poker website. Some of which includes (please see images):

  • Click-to-play post images
  • Carousel edit and delete items
  • Interactive Quiz Posts
  • Fully responsive Social Pop-up Bar
  • Click-to-reveal interactive Gif / PNG images using Canvas
  • … and many other unmentioned Front-end UI developments.

Adobe CQ5 Maintenance

Additional works would include various modifications to the website via the CQ5 CMS and development of components and templates.
