About This Project
Atom.com (formerly AtomFilms) is one of the oldest video brands on the web. They were acquired by Viacom to create an incubator for viral comedy shorts to supplement MTV's Comedy Central brand in the online space. During my tenure as design lead for the Atom team, I was able to tweak, and in many cases completely redesign (within the limitations of the existing platform) almost every page on a large high-traffic, community oriented site. Among the initiatives that I spearheaded the design of was a branded custom playlist channel player (replacing the old list-of-links video collection format), launching a weekly online user-submission tournament, and gamifying social aspects of the site through honor badges and rewards.
