AOL Family Computing Channel



Company Description

Originally known as America Online, AOL began around 1985 and has grown to become a mega global media powerhouse. I was involved growing customer engagement just at the time about half of all U.S. homes with Internet access had it through AOL. While working on various content channels – including News (AOL Live!), Sports (The Sporting News), Family Computing, Travel, Shopping, and Entertainment – the company experienced their greatest growth.

Project Description

One of AOLs most popular areas in version 3 was the Family Computing channel including it's chatting forums and games. The screen design integrated lots of visual eye candy to peek users interest to explore the different areas and get more intimate with the various subjects.
