Microsoft Windows Live
About this project:
Microsoft wanted to create a series of videos to introduce users to all the functionality that Windows Live software incorporated. This software suite included major revisions to Windows Hotmail, Windows Messenger and Windows Essentials, a photo and video creation suite. Microsoft also wanted it to convey a sense of user friendliness. I recommended the videos incorporate softer illustration style instead of screenshots. This would also include creation of characters and humorous 'dialog' which we knew would need to exist under a narrative. The characters would weave the user's experiences and interactions with the software and how they would encounter potential issues and utilize the added functionality while using the new Windows Live software.

Finally, we also suggested to Microsoft that we reduce the software interface and make it more graphic instead of the Windows 7 rendered aesthetic, which would later be incorporated into Windows 8 OS user interface!
