Disney's Player Safety

In 2010, I was a Web Designer working on the website for the massive multiplayer online role playing game, Club Penguin.

Challenge

Transform the dull Player Safety page into a lively page that appeals to parent's concern for online safety and speaks to children about how to stay safe. I brought forth the levels of safety features that exist inside the game and also added an interactive education piece about password protection.

My Deliverables
