Web design, app and gamification interface

In 2012 I moved, for around 10 months, to Cologne (Germany) to work as an Art Director, being responsible of Pokermania’s graphic-web design, illustration, brand identity, UI conceptualization and adaptation of the app’s interface for new clients. I also played a key role in the creation of an online system based on PNG layers to allow the users customizing their avatars.

Closely with Pokermania developers, I worked in the creation of the app interface, translating technical wireframes into final User Interfaces with a focus on Gamification.

UI Customization for Brands

Once the master UI of the app was designed, I customized the interface for several clients like the German TV channels Sport1 and Pro Sieben, or celebrities like Robbie Williams and Nuclear Blast.  We also pitched brands like Playboy, BigpointESL gaming or Beko.

Avatar Creator

I designed a Photoshop based avatar system consisting in more than 3,000 PNG items – now available for purchase – . Specially tricky was the skin tone items, due to the level of detail I had to create each facial item in 10 different skin tones… In order to  accomplish such a huge task I developed advanced Photoshop droplets, javascript and actions to rename and export layers to PNG files.
