Gears of War is a video game franchise developed by The Coalition, and owned by Microsoft Studios. The franchise is dark toned and intense and includes Online Co-op, Horde Mode, Versus Multiplayer, and stunning visuals powered by Unreal Engine 4. Available worldwide on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC as an Xbox Play Anywhere title.
I translate Gears of War franchise game features to web for desktop and mobile, as well as redesign the gearsofwar.com site – including both the user flows and the user interface. I partner with the Web Product Owner, Web Producer, Lead Developer and contribute to the scoping and planning of each milestone. I present my designs and explain my thought process to the Web Team and Key Stakeholders, and iterate based on feedback.
