My Role: Design and Art Direction
TheDailyShow.com was the first very large scale "vertical" (stand alone) site that we designed in-house at Comedy Central. We had to find a way to organize a huge amount of content, including 10+ years of episodes and video clips, in a way that made the content easily accessible and not overwhelming. I worked very closely with the UX team to create a user experience that was fun and compelling to the casual browser, but also satisfying to the those searching for specific content.
The new site provided a much more robust browsing and search experience for the user. It enabled us to maximize the extensive collection of metadata we had amassed for the show, as a means of browsing, searching and filtering content. We also added some fun browsing features such as The Daily Show Timeline, and the Way-Back Randomizer.
