Vertigo Games America is a global publisher of multiplayer online games. It is a spin-off company from Vertigo Games, Inc., a game developer based in South Korea. Vertigo Games is renowned for its popular online FPS title, BlackShot Online.
As a Contract Senior Designer, I was in charge of re-architecting and redesigning BlackShot Online’s website from the ground up, targeting North/South American, European, and South East Asian markets. My primary goals were to create a site that is visually appealing, easy to navigate, and highly transactional while encouraging prospective users to sign up and download the client to play the game as well as cultivate the online community. After launching the website, we received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our users, and the sign-up rate for new users increased by 350%, and met company’s quarterly goals just within a month.
During my tenure at Vertigo Games America, I had the privilege of leading and working with team members both in Seoul, Korea and Vancouver, BC, Canada.
