Tell Me Why is a video game I worked on at Microsoft. My responsibilities for this project were making an accessible and attractive website, creating graphics for community growth and marketing purposes, and creating the opening motion graphics featured within the game.

ROLE

I was the lead designer, responsible for the website and interaction design; from user flow, through wireframing and iteration, to final visual design.
