Black Diamond Casino
Black Diamond Casino is a social casino game that catered to a premium audience. As the Head of UX for Rising Tide Games, my role was to provide art direction, branding, and experience design to the game. The style of the game was influenced by the Great Gatsby and the gilded age of the Art Deco period. Rising Tide Games was acquired by Zynga in 2015. I worked on the experience design, feature flows, branding, and the UI art.
After working as Director of UX for Zynga Poker, I was commissioned briefly to work as a creative director for the largest poker operator in the world, Pokerstars. With the design team of Pokerstars, we redesigned the free-to-play poker product to attract a broader audience of poker players. Rather than the austere black and blues, I shifted the color palette to more casino colors: purple and gold. My role was art direction of the UI, animation, table art, and branding.
