SUPERVISOR: Michael McCormacK
Senior UX Designer / Wizards of the Coast 2012-2015
With capacities ranging from UX consultation to project strategy, my primary objective is site visitor retention through compelling user experiences. I have served as the key internal UX authority for redesigns of the Magic: The Gathering, Wizards Play Network & Community Sites, seeing each of these through their transition to a new platform, Drupal. I assisted in bug priority determination and direct vendor direction. The Magic site alone sees millions of visitors each month, and the update ignites a new cycle of continuous iteration and improvements.

From initial discussions to ideation, and throughout the production phase, I insured a consistent user experience. My responsibilities covered the gamut of consultant, art director & production designer as necessary. I completed regular quality reviews with the development team prior to final site launches. The work was primarily digital, with the occasional print piece or advertising campaign. While in this role, I helped our team achieve a look on the sharepoint platform that has been historically uncommon at Microsoft.
