Come on over – The quirky Europe Game


Come On Over is a good example for a web-design project that turned into a different direction than we expected. The Grafik Designer Felix Auer called on me to find someone who can help him with the online presentation of a card-game about the European Union.

Right at the beginning of our meeting, I saw that Felix has already some experiences on CSS and HTML5 and would love to do it all on his own. The only problem was, that they had a pretty soon release date and they would therefore need someone who can overlook the pusblishing process and provide fast solutions when something goes wrong.
So, my job was primarily to consult him and explain the overall work-flow of the WORDPRESS theme architecture to him. So he could upload the content on his own and style the theme regarding his own design concept that was already established for the card game.

In the meantime he had another job for me, that sould go hand in hand with website. He wanted to have a video that explains the game starring three animated characters he had illustrated. I agreed to start immediatly working on the video and I although asked Max Horjes from Polygon Meda / Atzgerei to help me, so we could finish in time.

 

 

 I find it always interesting to see, how projects turn out. Felix came up on me, to have a website for his card-game. He left with a animation-instruction video and the know-how to install and fill a wordpress blog. Webdesign is a changing business. It is always good to provide all-in-one solutions but it is even better if one can also give that little push, so that the client can do the crucial part of the work on his own. Especially if he is a grafik designer as well and aware of what he wants and how it should look like.
