MahjongLogic is a software provider offering an online version of the popular Chinese table game. The software allows clients to start running their own online mahjong rooms at competitive rates. It offers a full suite of services from lobby management to backend admin services.
I redesigned the website and implemented it in WordPress. This entailed designing the homepage, subpages, news pages, while reusing all of the existing content from the previous design.
The previous website design was not getting much attention due to its dated look compared to similar websites in the space; it was also a pain to browse on smaller screens.
I worked with the product manager to develop an updated online presence that focused on presenting the content with a modern aesthetic and simplifying the navigation while making sure all devices can render the content responsively.
After assessing the current web content + additional content from the product manager, I came up with 5 content blocks to make the top navigation simple. The footer links allow the user to see the content structure in detail.
I decided to include at least 2 hero images for the homepage to highlight various product features. The content blocks allow for easy scanning and also help make the content easily flow on most devices.
I was also tasked to produce a newsletter design for outbound communications. I did a couple of responsive designs; they look especially good on mobile.
The entire site is designed responsively across mobile, tablet, and desktop devices. I wanted to provide an optimum browsing experience focusing on the content regardless of viewport size.
We had a subscription to Shutterstock so having access to beautiful mahjong-related imagery was easy. I focused on photos that have a dynamic yet classic feel, a reflection of the product.
I used Wordpress with Bootstrap for the custom theme to make the pages responsive from the get-go and the content easily updateable. I wrote a concise training document to guide them on how to update different parts of the website.
