Down + Dirty
Project: Microsite design
Involvement: Concept through design
Down + Dirty and Planet OtterBox are two microsite-like pages that are dedicated to OtterBox’s extreme sports side and social media, respectively. I designed these from the ground up to be different and try to break outside of the traditional boxy web layouts. Note that the existing structure of the header, menu, page body size, and footer were left untouched so that they fit in with the rest of the site (these elements were not designed by me).
Down + Dirty was designed to be themed with the current outdoor sports season. This particular design was tailored for the snowboarding scene and features upcoming OtterBox events, a calendar, photo sharing, a related Twitter feed, and any relevant special features or contests.
Planet OtterBox is an update to a long-existing concept which ties together all of OtterBox’s social media outlets. It features a Flickr feed, Twitter feed, customer testimonials, blog posts, videos, and recent Facebook posts.
