To celebrate the summer season of blockbuster movies, the Moviefone editorial team puts together an annual package of movie recommendations, a calendar and other content about the season. For the summer of ’06, I worked on everything from UI to look and feel of the package as well as collaborating with my team members to write CSS for the package. The UI consisted of organizing and reworking elements of the existing CMS to create the pages based on the requirements from the editorial team.
