I have worked on refining the GameFreaks365 brand since 2012. This small independent site was started in 2002 by my long-time friend when he was only 14, way back before YouTube, Gmail, and Facebook were even a thing.
Digital design for print and web. I redesigned the Game Freaks 365 brand and helped bring it to life with animations in it's YouTube channel.
I designed and developed of a fully responsive custom WordPress theme and aided in migrating content and databases from PHP Nuke.
Long form writing, video capture, editing, and recording narrations for video reviews on Game Freaks 365's YouTube channel. Design of print publications.
I set out to redesign GameFreaks365.com in order to give it new life. This process included the front end redesign, starting fresh with Wordpress, and migrating content from PHP Nuke CMS in the back end. The redesign process also involved refining the Game Freaks 365 brand to be more dynamic, so that it may scale alongside the responsive page design. Its design also reflects the shared "DNA" with its sibling site, The South Bend Voice.
GameFreaks365's responsive design comfortably goes from a 10 foot experience in your living room to the palm of your hand on your smartphone or tablet.View Game Freaks 365
