Case Studies


Role: Developer

Tech: Gatsby, Contentstack

The assignment here was to take a junior team and improve the quality of work they were delivering while also helping to internally overhaul the web department. We used our own product as a headless CMS, and spent a good deal of the year I worked here cleaning up technoical debt and learning best practices. We were able to reduce the size of the codebase by about half, and also improved turnaround time on new work by around 200%.

Dynamic Signal

Role: Developer / Designer

Tech: Wordpress, Pug, Gulp

I came into this site after it had been online for four years and reworked through several agencies. I rebuilt the theme using modern practices, implemented version control, and removed all front end plugins. I was able to reduce page load time from an average of 14s per page to a more reasonable 2.5s per page. I was then able to help the content team double time spent on page and significantly increase organic search traffic. Through funnel optimization and UX improvement, total site conversions doubled.

Tech: Zendesk, Vue, Theming & Customization

The Dynamic Signal Support site is built on the ZenDesk platform using a custom theme. This was a cross-departmental effort which I ran and coordinated. This work also included some light work with Vue, as that is what ZenDesk's front end is built with.

This site was built to interface with the in-game experience of WWE 2K '17. Players could upload and manage their in game images from the site. This was a front end application built in javascript with a php component, connecting to a REST API endpoint provided through a third party. The interior design of the application was skinned to match the in game experience.

Role: Developer

Tech: Expression Engine, Localization, Social Media API

Borderlands is a large, well known franchise. The challenge here was in creating a visual spectacle with the site to showcase the franchise's unique look and feel. Also, with a large amount of DLC, the relationships between various products and package deals was a taxonomical challenge. With a localized site, content spaces with so much imagery had to be carefully designed to be flexible to fit differently sized strings. Additionally, the site featured social media API interaction and a Skill Tree calculator web application.

This is a small site for one of 2k's Game Developers. It is fed by a centralized CMS, and statically generated under continuous deploy using TeamCity as the build agent.

In this case, the studio's active social media activity to keep their site in the moment, along with relevant aggregated news from, which showcases the studios current offering, Mafia 3. By organizing the content in chronological order from most recent, returning visitors are given content to engage with the studio on, with very little additional input from their team.
