For this project, I had the opportunity to flex some development muscle to build out the design by Vivo360 into a highly interactive, responsive website that functioned as a promotional tool for the event. One of the primary goals was to promote the event to viewers while also attracting the nominees to interact and cast their votes for the different awards. The nominees page was by far the bulk of this project because of the sheer number of nominees (around 350) and all the different categories. Through some CSS3 hover effects and variables we were able to create a unique way to feature images and descriptive text that didn't clutter the page. The grid layout for the nominees page and hover effect gave us the space to add the nominee information and call to action without being overwhelming.
I also implemented a voting system inside the Wordpress site to tally votes cast by the general public for the Entertainer of the Year Award. This project, while quite a challenge with the short timeframe to work with was quite rewarding given the high-profile status of the event.
