Sr. Information Architect: Betfair

I started at Betfair when it was still in a start-up mentality. Since then it has become the largest online betting company in the UK and the largest sports betting exchange in the world.

As Sr. Information Architect my first assignment was to restructure their ‘solar system’ of separate product sites into a single ‘portal’. I was then designated to the Sports Exchange product where I designed and launched several of their new features and products. I worked closely with various Product Managers to bring their vision to market through extensive user testing and agile development methods.

My last assignment at Betfair was the interaction design for a new Italian ‘Sportsbook’ web site. This wireframe illustrates the secondary navigation and interaction for 3 levels of event page filters.

Information Architect/User Interface Designer II

It was only a few months after Getty Images acquired PhotoDisc in 1998 when I started in marketing as the web designer designated to the PhotoDisc site. The acquisition was really to get a hold of the development team which I joined 2 years later as an information architect. In less than a year the site was grossing over a million dollars a day. Not bad for back then.

Search was crucial at Getty Images. ‘If you can’t find it, you can’t buy it’; was our motto. My role at Getty Images touched all aspects of user interface design and implementation on dynamic, search driven ecommerce web sites and proprietary backend web applications. Constant assignments for new features, enhancements, and lots of brand acquisition & integration. I worked closely with project managers, usability research, development, QA and marketing/sales teams.
