Social Web Application
Team: Context Optional
At Context Optional, I played an integral role in creating the largest and most complex custom Facebook application in the company's history. Expedia's goals were to hit 1 million 'Likes' with this social marketing campaign. They partnered with 9 different vacation destinations to offer all-expenses paid "FriendTrips" to each destination for a user and 5 of their friends. No one was prepared for how successful and viral this application became... not only did Expedia surpass it's target of 1 million followers, the app was used and shared by over a million Facebook users. I was involved with this project from concept to launch as the branding and app designer and front-end developer alongside two Ruby on Rails developers.
